Born along the south shores of Lake Simcoe and raised in Toronto, Rob has returned to his roots after spending most of his adult life in the Elliot Lake area. Living in the north has given him an appreciation of the great outdoors and nature. Retiring in Orillia from careers as a geologist and a financial advisor. Always an avid self taught photographer, his passion for the outdoors and travel is evident in his work. Photos of wildlife, nature and landscapes usually focus on simplifying the image and reducing clutter to concentrate on the subject. Years of world travel to Africa, Europe, the Far East and the Middle East have all helped shape his style.
