| BIO |
People know Robert for many different things. Most know him as a fine musician. Some know him as a recording engineer, while others know him as a photographer and designer. He’s done all those things. But at the centre of it all, at the core of what drives him, is art – whether it be audio or visual. Trained as a classical musician, Robert learned from early on that focus and commitment can achieve something great. He brings this same passion, to learning, practising and refining his craft. Whether it’s shooting a magazine cover, recording a new cd or live concert, editing a music video or designing a new website and print campaign, he is always striving for excellence.
But it is not just about the skills, using a new program or piece of gear, or even scouting locations and knowing when the light is best. While these are all important, it is not what sets him apart. Robert is a passionate people-person. For him, it has always been about taking care of the client and connecting with people. None of his projects, whether collaborative or commissioned, can achieve something special unless subject and artist can achieve a sense of connection. This is as true with photography and design as it is when allowing a recording session to find its natural rhythm.
Robert is an ideas man with little time for sleep. His mind is always at work learning new techniques, finding inspiring art and coming up with new ideas that are sometimes a bit over the top but too great not to try. This is why I look forward to working with Robert. Continuously moving forward is what being quality, reliable, creative is all about and that is what Robert strives to do each and everyday.
