Robert is one of the most widely renowned portrait photographers in Europe. His work has evolved to lifestyle, sports and documentary style projects and is recognised for its accessibility and depth for revealing power and humanity.
He is commissioned throughout Europe and USA collaborating with leading creatives on campaigns such as Peroni, Anglo American, HSBC, Nike, Adidas, Visa and Siemens.
In 2008 he was commissioned as a war artist for the British Army, documenting the people and places within Helmand Province, Afghanistan. This unique and emotional body of work resulted in an exhibition on the rooftop of the Hayward Gallery, London, an extended exhibition at the National War Museum in Scotland, as well as the publication of the highly acclaimed book ‘Helmand’. In 2014 he returned to Afghanistan to document the withdrawal of the British troops and the deconstruction of the war machine. Supported by the arts council England, ‘Helmand Return’ was a national outdoor billboard exhibition, shown alongside exhibitions at Gallery One and a Half, London and a follow up exhibition at the National War Museum, Scotland.
Recognised by the Association of Photographers, the European Art Directors Club, the Design and Art Directors Club, the John Kobal Portrait Awards, Archive 200 Best Photographers, his portraits are included in the permanent collection of both the English and Scottish National Portrait Galleries.
