The photographer, Robert Ascroft, many times on Emmy day said, as one of the winners, presenters and other A-listers turned in his backstage-photo-studio.

“There is so much happening on this day for the talent,” he said, as the rush was over. “But these images have longevity. I really want them to be too big. And So I say to you, ” Take a deep breath, let it out and give me four or five pictures that will last forever.'”

During a photo session takes hours often, to capture Robert and many of his Emmy-portraits had in less than a minute. As one of the winners go to the stage of L. A.’s Microsoft theatre, one of the first stations in the emmy studio.

Other topics are directly behind, and those that have for him a number of interviews and shoots to get in and parties, of course. So speed is of the essence — not only in the creation of the images, but the conversion set up to accommodate individuals or large groups.

On the other side of the set, a screen background of grey-blue: “Cooler tones in the background, the warmth of the skin pop.” As the day turned to night, Emmy Insider cast in Robert’s studio, oohing and aahing, and often the recognition of their photographers.

“Many of these people, I have photographed them over the years. It’s nice that it from being switched on.” Although Robert turned the emmy studio for the first time, he is widely known for his work in celebrity portraits, fashion, beauty and advertising, for print, web, billboards and television.
