Robert Rose

Studio owner Robert Rose grew up with photography and Brant Photographers! When he was ten, Rob began developing film and making prints in a home darkroom he set up with his dad, Ken- owner of Brant Photographers. Rob began working part-time in the studio at the age of 13.

Rob literally learned the business from the ground up, beginning with folding price lists and sweeping the floors. While Rob was in high school he assisted with some of the studio darkroom work, and by the time he was eighteen he was in the camera room creating portraits. In 1985, Rob purchased the studio from his parents. Over 30 years of full involvement in every aspect of studio operations gives Rob a unique perspective on portrait photography and helps him create portraits that are artistic and sensitive.

Rob is an active volunteer both locally and internationally. Locally, Rob has volunteered for Bellevue Rotary Club, Bellevue Schools, Bellevue Schools Foundation, and Kindering Center. He has been a member of Bellevue Rotary since 1986.

Rob’s lifelong interest in the people and culture of south Asia began when he was a Rotary exchange student to Calcutta, India, during his junior year in High School. He still enjoys exchanging visits with his two Indian “families.”

Since 1997 he has done extensive volunteer work in Nepal and has raised money through Rotary grants to help children with disability and disadvantaged children. In 2005 Rob and his wife, Gina founded The Rose International Fund for Children (TRIFC.org) to enhance their ability to help those less fortunate in Nepal. This past year TRIFC helped launch ‘The National Braille Library’ in Kathmandu, Nepal and now has 45 children with disability sponsored by kind and concerned people from around the world!

Rob’s many charitable activities, both locally and internationally have earned him the prestigious ‘Four Avenues of Service Award’ from Rotary International and in 2005 he was named ‘Rotarian of the Year’ by the Bellevue Rotary Club. In 2009 he was named Rotary District 5030 ‘Rotarian of the Year’ out of 3,500 Rotarians in Western Washington State. Rob also donates portrait displays for the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce and the Bellevue Philharmonic. These displays tour downtown office buildings throughout the year.

Rob enjoys spending time with his family, outdoor activities, ping-pong, and coordinating humanitarian projects in Nepal.
