Born in Buenos Aires in 1976 as a descendent of Argentina’ s president, Manuel Quintana, Ruprecht had a taste for worldly culture at a young age. Ranked as one of the top five professional skiers in the US by the age of 18, he went on to become an Ivy league graduate from Dartmouth with a degree in Economics and developed a long standing career working for significant companies of stature such as Merrill Lynch International Bank, Price Waterhouse Coopers and Blast Radius. Ruprecht has an eye for passionate scenes and seeks the spirit of the moment. His cultural depth, exotic travels and rich personal and professional character have contributed to his artistic endeavors.
In 2001, the curious creative took an extended two month journey to India where he took some of the first photographs that would later seed his career. In 2004, amidst his thriving executive career in the interactive and management space, Peter returned to Argentina and co-founded Forza Films, a documentary production company that has produced work for leading networks including Discovery Channel and ESPN. As partner at Forza Films, Peter honed his eye for video and still imagery production, which solidified his creative passion into a professional career.
In 2009, he set off to make photography his sole source of income and entered the world of commercial photography with conviction, shooting for clients such as L’Oreal, Timex, Ecko, Ciroc, Disney, Red Bull, Modus and others. Recently, he has joined the ranks of executives, consulting for Scout Inc. group, a media company focused on producing content in the sports and outdoor industries.
Self taught and recipient of the prestigious Angkor photography award, Peter captures the natural spirit of people and places all across the world. Like many of his subjects, he himself is nomadic, a wanderer amidst the greatness of the world. Through his distinctly honest and deliberate approach, Peter intensifies the relationships between the viewer and subject, achieving immediate emotional and spiritual presence, inviting the viewer to consider the ideas and feelings of the subject, and the eternal soul within all of us.
