While studying for this degree, Robin began assisting photographer Manuel Vason, and had his first taste of high budget, commercial photography at home and abroad. Soon after, Robin began assisting at London’s Big Sky Studios working alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. Aside from painting coves and perfecting the art of tea making, Robin began learning the intricacies of studio lighting and began experimenting with portraiture. This marked the beginning of his love for people-led photography. Robin is a Leica Akademie Ambassador and often leads workshops for Leica UK in Mayfair.
