Born in 1954 Rob has traveled extensively
to such diverse areas as Tahiti, Panama, USA, UK, Europe, New
Zealand, Africa and much of Australia.
During the course of these travels
he worked as a darkroom technician in London and Canberra, a commercial
photographer in Perth, a stock photographer for Globe Photos,
New York and a newspaper photographer in Grafton. He also wrote
and/or photographed articles for travel magazines on subjects
such as London, Paris, African wildlife and bushwalking.
Turning to large-format landscapes
in the mid-90s Rob exhibited, ran workshops, and sold prints from
his small gallery in Canberra until the year 2000 when he, and
his wife Chris, left their jobs, closed the gallery, sold most
of their possessions, and started a life on the road in Australia's
largest and weirdest off-road motor home.
In 2004 Rob retired the large-format
camera and switched to digital equipment, this also signaled a
return to his first photographic love, wildlife and nature photography
but he is keeping large-format landscape principles alive by shooting
multi-image panoramas, a process similar to using a large-format
Rob now spends his time exploring
and photographing Australia.
