Robin Moon


Robin  ( with Tim ) lives near the harbour in Sydney, having come to photography a few years ago as a way of decompressing from a stressful other career. She strives in her photography to always find the lighter side of life - being out in nature, getting grubby in the dirt or waiting for hours in the hot sun or freezing cold; its all a metaphor for being able to immerse herself deep into another world. Animals , with their unpredictability , and their ability to make her laugh out loud, are her passion. She hopes her work conveys that joy.

Sponsored by Sony as Digital Imaging Advocate since  2019, she enjoys sharing her passion for image making through running workshops and educational days covering technique, equipment and  post processing.

Her skill as a communicator has been recognised, which has led to invitations to  judge in a number of photographic competitions and she regularly gives presentations to corporations and camera clubs.

Judge - Sony Alpha Australia Awards, Nature Category 2019 - 2022,
Judge - Mosman Photography Awards 2019-2022,  and  for the Judge Australian Photographic Prize 2022.

She also judges regularly for FCC(NSW) Camera Clubs and is currently the Vice President of Mosman Camera Club.

In November/ December 2022 she embarked on a new adventure representing Sony and Intrepid Travel  in Antarctica as Photography Ambassador onboard the Ocean Endeavour.

She has...
...Been kissed by a wolf in Norway, climbed inside a giant tortoise shell in the Galapagos, hiked up a glacier  into the Crystalline Ice Caves of Iceland and trekked to an altitude of 5005 metres to sip tea with the locals in the shadows of Mt Chomolari in the Himalayas of Bhutan.

...Explored the dunes of the world's largest desert in the United Arab Emirates to photograph the falcons diving at breakneck speed, and let out a squeal of sheer joy at the dancing Northern lights whilst stuck waist deep  in fresh snow in the Lofoten Islands. 

...Photographed the adorable Atlantic Puffins of Skomer Island in Wales, and watched a herd of  Camargue horses gallop out of the ocean in the pink sky dawn. She has eyeballed the cheeky Humpback Whales of Tonga,  played underwater tag with the Sealions of Kangaroo Island and stood up to the sociable stingrays of Jervis Bay head-butting her for fishy snacks. Most recently she laughed out loud at the antics of 20 Gentoo penguins all trying to fit at once on a 1 metre sized iceberg.

Home is Sydney, where  the ferocious summer storms with their shelf clouds and lightning can provide a magic backdrop on the worlds' most beautiful harbour.

Proficient in Lightroom and Photoshop storytelling is the motivation behind her work - the aim being
to make a connection through adventure, nature and humour.
