Rob grew up on the beach. He lived from one outdoor adventure to the next – and whether he was sailing, climbing or snowboarding, Rob always packed a camera. The camera traveled with him to university, where he studied biology and planned to be a doctor. But it was then that photography got the best of him. So he traded the microscope for the 35mm, pursued formal training, and moved to Toronto.
Rob has worked with such clients as Visa, Apple, Proctor & Gamble, Telus, Canadian Tire, Alexander Keiths, Nissan, Pfizer and many others. His work has been recognized by Communication Arts, Applied Arts, Photo District News, One Show and Creativity.
In his previous life, Rob was also an international gymnast and a stunt double. He can still pull off a mean backflip, which comes in really handy when working on demanding jobs.
