Rob studied Biochemisty at the University of York, and worked for 3 years in metabolic research at the University of Bristol. After an extensive period of travel he returned to the UK in the early 80s and for the next decade worked as a freelance photographer and writer in London and Bristol. In the early 90s he joined one of the largest magazine publishers in the UK and launched their internal photographic studio.

The department developed into one of the largest editorial studios in the UK, comprising six studios and a team of 12 studio and location photographers. With Rob as manager and chief photographer it produced the majority of the commissioned work for more than 100 national and international magazines, covering subjects as diverse as music, cycling and mountain biking, cars, sailing, football, film and television, lifestyle, food, science, technology and business.

Rob returned to freelancing in 2010 and in addition to carrying out commissioned and personal work both in the UK and oversees he has been working on a long term project documenting Britain’s surviving traditional industries. This work is now published as a book, Crafted in Britain (Bloomsbury 2017).

Rob has worked in more than 35 countries and is available for commission in commercial, portrait and editorial work anywhere in the world.
