Photographer + Songwriter Roger Hoover

Self Portrait. 2019.

Roger Hoover is a photographer + songwriter.

I'm a photographer and songwriter but at heart, I'm a storyteller. I find different ways to tell them, be it with a song, photography, video, or a poster design. For me, creativity reaches its zenith when it tells a great story, provokes a response or elicits emotion.

Roger has been a critical darling as a songwriter. His manuscripts are housed in the Rock + Roll Hall of Fame Library and Archives alongside much more notable personalities. He co-founded small business marketing and design agency, Rust Creative where he continues to work and help businesses grow.  He lives with his wife and two children in Kent, Ohio.

Roger Hoover is the principal photographer at Rust Creative. His photography has been featured in social media campaigns, advertising and editorial. He photographs everything from bands on tour to food photography - going wherever a story leads him. He enjoys shooting landscape, portraiture, lifestyle, street, and documentary photography. He has a sincere passion for cultivating community, making intentional memories, and capturing moments that normally go unseen. He is prepared to embrace community, culture, and any creative group to produce beautiful and original work.
