The portfolios above are separated into specific categories. An image in one portfolio may show in another. For example, a lighthouse image appearing in the “Coastal Images” portfolio may also appear in the “Structures” portfolio. Or an autumn setting on a lake would appear in both the “Bodies of Water” and “Seasons” portfolios. To view the images in a portfolio, hover the mouse over the portfolio image and click to enter.
The three images below, when clicked on, will open up a page showing a set of instructions describing: (1) how to view an image larger; (2) how to use tags to narrow a search for a particular type of image and (3) how to purchase an image. Every image can be accessed through the portfolios or through the image tags using the + symbol in the upper right hand corner of the navigation bar.

Born in a northern beach town of Holland and raised in coastal New England, Robin has always lived near the sea. Becoming immersed in his work is what has the greatest meaning for him. ‘Do what you love to do. Find a way. Show up to your own life. Somehow find a way because in the end, that is all that really matters’ he encourages.
Along the way, he saw many wonderful land and seascapes. At times he had a camera in hand but mostly he was busy running to business meetings and running through airports. Over those decades, on weekends or on a rare day-off he managed to shoot portraits, events, still life and even some landscapes. Busy as he was with his engineering career, he could not shake the yearning to be outdoors in the wilds photographing Nature.
As time went on he realized that he was living a life unfulfilled. Eventually reaching a cross-road in his life, the decision to settle in coastal Maine and pursue fine art landscape photography wholeheartedly was made. So instead of madly running through airports you will now see Robin running through fields or along a beach. Capturing the light at its best, instead of capturing business contracts, is what brings him happiness and contentment.
Even with the technological advances of today’s digital cameras, it is still impossible to completely and accurately capture what the human eye can see, and especially what the human spirit can feel. So I spend time in the digital darkroom carefully and purposefully pushing and pulling colors and hues in order to express the intensity of that captured moment in time.
For the last few years I have fine-tuned my skills in all phases of creating a finished composition. With the advent of newer technologies in image capture and lens design, I can bring out more of the subtle color tones that exist in the scene, along with expanding the dynamic range of light that is there, too. Combined with using more advanced software editing programs (as much as five for one image, if necessary) I am able to bring to realization what I experienced and felt at the time I captured the scene through my lens.

I am an early riser, and before the sun has a chance to reveal itself above the horizon I like to capture the oncoming light falling on the coastline. By sunset, I am most likely at another location. In between, I am editing my shots, meeting with my printer, working with the galleries that carry my work and am also busy making my many cups of hot tea.
