David Robin
David first began making photographs while a painting student in California as a means of exploring the subjects he was later to render in pigments. However Robin soon found the immediacy of the photographic medium a more appropriate match for his vision, sensibility and process. After attending university Robin apprenticed and became a master printer for some of the world’s leading photographers of the day. It was here that Robin discovered and honed his love of the black and white image. David began his solo career as the chief fashion photographer for a major national retailer. This intense experience helped perfect his skills in production, lighting and his understanding of pre-press. These skills have served him well whether shooting an ad campaign, a music package or an editorial spread. Robin's work can be seen in everything from music packaging, advertising campaigns, editorial spreads and book covers to fine art galleries and installations. He has received numerous professional awards for his commercial work commissioned by such clients as Levi Strauss,The Gap, Blue Note Records, Sony, BMG Records and Norwegian Cruise Lines. In addition to commercial work, Robin pursues self-directed projects that reflect his personal vision. His personal work has been exhibited at the Steven Amedee Gallery, NYC, Robin Rice Gallery, NYC, Nikon House, NYC, Ansel Adams Center, SF and the Indigo Gallery, LA. Besides many private collections his work is included in the collections of American Express, Bloomingdales, Grey Worldwide and Levi Strauss and Company.
