I photographed Josh Linked in downtown Detroit in January of 2013. Josh is a well-known Detroit community entrepreneur, author and investor. I took this image using one light and balancing it against the sky in the background. I used tone-mapping and post processing techniques to develop the final image. There were some cords in the scene that I did not want visible in the final...
Kevin Bell, Chrysler. Senior Manager – Diversity Supplier Development. Photography by Rosh Sillars
This is one of my favorite images of Judy Davids. I met her almost a decade ago. She is someone who always has something going on. A guitarist for her band The Mydols, entrepreneur behind PostEgram, being interviewed on national television multiple times or writing a cool book called Rock Star Mommy. She is an active member of the Detroit community and a great subject...
My Portrait of Metro Detroit Real Estate agent Eva Marrow owner of MichiganHomes.net. She is an excellent agent and works really hard online to support her clients, generally high-end buyers and sellers in Oakland County. I’ve known her for a few years. I have recently had the opportunity to work with her through my association with Royal Oak web design firm Synectics Media.

This image worked well in both color and black and white. Black and white was a little better. I think that is the case more often than not.
This portrait was created outside of Detroit on a working construction site. It’s formal for a construction site, but every detail is not styled.
I took this photograph of a Detroit area Lacrosse coach a few years ago. It has held up as one of my favorite portraits. I like the lighting. I used one light on the subject and a one light on the highly reflective objects in the background.
I photographed Michigan Governor Rick Synder In February of 2011. He had not fully moved into his Governors office when I visited for a local Magazine. He certainly has his work cut out for him.
By Detroit Photographer Rosh Sillars I took this image on location. My assignment was to photograph the construction of a new arena and the people building it. As we were leaving the construction area I saw the man above and took one last photograph. I didn’t think much of it at the time. When I got back home I started playing with post processing. Most...
