Hi, my name quite obviously, is Rob, and equally obvious is the fact that i, thats Rob, remember? Am a photographer.
I got into photography when i was very young, about 7 years old, i am now 37, you do the number crunching. My dad had a camera, we were on holiday and all i wanted to do was take a photograph, and 35mm film was expensive in those days, but he let me take one image and i have been hooked ever since.
I have seen many changes within photography in the past 30 years, most obvious being the digital revolution. Like many, i went digital when the quality suppassed that of 35mm film. though i still use 35mm camera's, mostly vintage models for their asthetic qualities.
Like many, i began my professional career by doing weddings, though i soon moved into media, photographing for several publications centered around the early rave scene in the 1990's, way before those annoying fuckers with cameras in clubs came along.
As i grew up i moved into wildlife, but after several years of sitting and waiting in hides for elusive wild creatures i decided i needed another change of direction, something completely different form what i had previously done.
And here i am.
I love working with models, colaborating and sharing ideas for shoots, though i do sometimes get frustrated when i am expected to deliver shoot ideas time and time again with very little input from those wanting a shoot.
That said, i love it when i am working with a camera in my hand and actually shooting whoever i happen to be working with on that day. Its a great feeling when everything comes together to create an artistic image. And i love editing. I know editing has very little to do with photography, but i enjoy experimenting with different ideas.
I recently lost many images from the past two years, and far from feeling sad, i saw it as a new start, to begin again and create something even more special than previous.
