About


Robin Keus is clearly in his element when capturing the beauty of Nature with his cameras. He thrives in the great outdoors and come rain or shine, snow or sleet, he can be found on or near the Maine coast doing what he loves best. Enveloped by sea winds, both wild and calm, hot or cold; trudging through thick muddy clam flats and losing a boot; parking himself and tripod in ankle-deep salty winter waters is what Robin does to get a great shot.

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.

Since early 2012, Robin has figuratively (and sometimes literally) plunged himself into fine art landscape photography. Up until then, his priorities and responsibilities were in many ways different than they are today. For the past 30 years leading up to 2012, Robin travelled much of the world as an engineer. He was focused on a successful career and was distracted in life by trying to stay ahead of the curve in the quickly and ever-changing hi-tech industry.

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.

Through the medium of photography I can replicate and express my emotions. My work is more than taking a snapshot of a scene, much more because it is truly a holistic process. Through the ever-changing seas and skies, compelling scenes reveal themselves, allowing me to become immersed and absorbed. I then set up the shot and compose the scene, keeping in mind what I must do in the post editing phase to bring about the full latitude of the scene’s vibrancy.

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.

If you have a favorite image that requires a custom size, please feel free to contact me directly using the form on this page, or if you feel so inclined you can call me at the number listed below. I am happy to hear from you from sun-up to sun-down.

Thank you for stopping by!
