Through his photography, Robert Castellino expresses his deep love for all places in nature. He shares his love for nature and fascination with life by bringing some of his best collected work together and putting it into book form. Whispering River, LLC, released Robert's second book, Colorado: Heart & Soul on October 1, 1999. 

Colorado:Heart & Soul offers the reader 136 pages of photographic images intertwined with a heartfelt story that speaks to the reader of the natural wonders of Colorado. In the hard-bound book, Robert explores and navigates the reader through sites of beauty and solitude, guaranteed to make anyone breathe in a sense of awe and inspiration. 

Colorado: Heart & Soul features 170 stunning color photographs as well as an insightful introduction by US Representative Mark Udall. 

In his introduction to Colorado: Heart & Soul, Congressman Mark Udall says, "In these pages, Robert Castellino captures the wonder and spirit of Colorado and gives you a sense of the unparalleled beauty of our natural landscape . You can visualize the diversity of our ecosystems, from the majestic mountains to the wild rivers and vibrant red canyons. You can feel the change of the seasons, from the clear, crisp winter nights to the warm, dry summers. And you can begin to understand the vast openness that gives us all a sense of endless possibility." 

Robert's first book, Boulder: Heart & Soul, People & Place was initially released in October 1998, and since then, has continued to stay in the top ten on the best-seller's list at the Boulder Book Store. The sales at Barnes & Noble in Boulder made it the number one store in its chain for the country for regional book sales. 

In addition to the two books, Boulder: Heart & Soul, People & Place and Colorado: Heart & Soul, Robert has published numerous calendars, greeting cards, and journals. For more information on Robert Castellino's work, please visit or call Amy Lewis at Whispering River, LLC.
