From using his fathers Kodak Box Brownie camera on school excursions at an early age to using the latest in digital technology and techniques in recent years, Robert's passion is for capturing the world around him from the perspective of a still practicing fine artist. His pastel, ink and acrylic paintings are also in public and private collections in Australia and overseas. A keen bushwalker, many of his images are about the environment.
" I 'borrowed' my father's Box Brownie camera one day back in the Sixties and never gave it back! He always had a camera in his hands and specialised in holiday photographs of the family. Not just happy snaps but images easily construed as 'photojournalism' And so begun my love and passion and an often futile attempt to emulate the naturalness of my father's images."
