Pierre Robert, DJ

The legendary 93.3 WMMR DJ has been filling the local airwaves with rock & roll since 1981. He was born in San Francisco and started his career at 84.9 KSAN, a progressive rock station in his home town. I photographed Pierre with his dog Lucy in September for Philadelphia Style. It was supposed to be published this month, but Niche Media (the owners) fired the entire photo department and dumped the work onto the New York office. Good times.

Pierre was a pleasure to work with. Somehow he's managed to hold on to that west coast vibe through 27 east coast winters. We were blessed with beautiful late afternoon light reminiscent of a crisp clear day in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.
