From hobby to a full-time profession
Robs grew up in his home town of King's Lynn in Norfolk. He now lives just outside Cambridge; an area he chose due its central location and access to the rest of the country.
His autodidactic approach to photography began when he bought his first digital camera in 2002. At that time he was working in the event and promotions industry as a freelance Event Manager. Rob has since moved on from the Event Management world to pursue his passion for photography; transforming his hobby in to a full time career as a national and international professional photographer.
Calling on over 6 years' experience working in retail and over 16 years of Event Management, Rob has an eye to capture images from a marketing, artistic, approachable and personable prospective.
In order to finance my often expensive photographic hobby, becoming a professional photographer was the logical progression for me. I'm fortunate to have been able to turn a hobby that I love into a full time career.
