Robert was born in the city of Bunbury, in the south west corner of Western Australia. His first exposure to photography was with his Pop who never went anywhere without his Super 8 movie camera. Robert accredits his Pop for his love and interest in photography today.
Robert first started tinkering with photography when in high school. There was always a earning to keep photographing the good old family happy snaps. In the late 1980's Robert gave up smoking cigarettes and took up photography in a more serious manner. He did not save any money, but started living a healthier life style.
Robert has since spent the last 20 odd years travelling the south west corner of Western Australia honing his photographic skills. There also has been a trip to Canada, USA and Malaysia, in the last 8 years. Roberts favorite type of type of shots tend to be lightning from thunder storms, followed closely by sunrises and sunsets with the stunning colours reflected on the water and clouds. He is now branching out to including landscapes and nature to his portfolio.
Roberts photographs reflect the true subject matter with very little manipulation on computers to enhance the image. What you see, is what you get.
