Prior to entering the photography world, Robbie was one of the lead marketing forces behind the successful skateboarding divisions of international powerhouses Nike SB and Stüssy. During his tenure, he was often asked to capture images for ad campaigns. On his first day of shooting, Robbie captured iconic images of Stüssy team rider Richard Mulder for a print ad – which has now been ranked as #3 in the Top 10 Stüssy ads of all time by Complex magazine.
His natural ability and passion for capturing raw and honest imagery transitioned him out of his marketing role and segued into a full time photography career. Now with over 17+ years in commercial and editorial photography his continued success has to do with who and what he is. He is directly connected to the imagery he creates -- resulting in thorough, bold and soulful documentation.
His client roster ranges from international apparel brands to iconic hip hop bands, and he is a frequently featured artist in print media including Rolling Stone, Slap, Slider, Transworld, Frank 151, Stüssy Mag, Kinari and Complex.
