Robert fell in love with photography when he was thirteen on a trip from California to Missouri. His family arrived at the Grand Canyon during the night and sat at the rim waiting for sunrise. As the sun began to creep over the horizon the black void of the canyon came alive with color. Later that summer when the film was developed it was like being there all over again and Robert was hooked. (If you've never been to the Grand Canyon, Robert recommends going to the rim for the first time in the dark and watching the sun unveil the beauty).
Since then Robert has visited 17 countries with his cameras in hand. He was an air traffic controller in the Air Force for twenty years and is now pursuing a career in photography. He has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Media Photography from the Univeristy of Central Missouri and is attending graduate school for communication/journalism. He lives in Warrensburg, Missouri with his wife and their chocolate lab "Necho".
