Robin lives near the harbour in Sydney (with Tim) and came 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 a number of invitations
to judge in a variety of photographic competitions :
Australian Photographic Prize - 2022 + 2023
Sony Alpha Australia Awards, Nature Category 2019 - 2022
Mosman Photography Awards 2019-2023
Robin gives corporate presentations and judges regularly for FCC(NSW) Camera Clubs
and is currently the Vice President of Mosman Camera Club.
In November + December 2022 she represented Sony and Intrepid Travel in Antarctica
as a 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
with the aim being to make a connection through adventure, nature and humour.
