"Drain You" - Nirvana


What's the best way to start the day?

Hardee's sausage/egg/cheese biscuits and an Iced Tea with my kids ;)


What mystery do you wish you knew the answer to? I'd really like to know if Aliens do exist plus the identity of the dang Zodiac Killer !

What are some things you had to unlearn?

I had to unlearn my Southern accent and my East Coast driving habits when I moved to the Midwest! Apparently honking is frowned upon. What fictional place would you most like to go?

Dragonstone from the Game Of Thrones


What have you only recently formed an opinion about?

I've recently formed a love for caring for and building an awesome habitat for our Betta Fish "Blue" ! He's been so much fun for me and the kids and our two dogs.

I'd have to say Slightly Out of Focus a story on my favorite photographer Robert Kapa!

Chapter 1 - Raised in a house of cats & dogs

What do you spend the most time thinking about?

I daydream a bunch about adventures with my family and of course chicken wings & Ribeye Steaks ! to on the phone?


Best and worst advice you've ever received.

Best - It's much easier to criticize than it is to create - Fortune Cookie 2006 Worst - just give it more gas dude - my close off-roading pals will get this


How has your work evolved over the past few years?

Wow, boy has it ever evolved ! It's changed drastically over the years from creating highly stylized conceptual composited portraits (mainly professional athletes & celebs) to going back to my roots as a photojournalist and capturing real authentic decisive moments in the Agriculture & Healthcare fields.


One thing you can't show up to a shoot without? Besides a camera ;)

I can't go without chocolate chip cookies when on location!


South Dakota Healthcare

For his latest campaign, Robb captured authentic moments of real hospital staff and patients for a local hospital in South Dakota. Due to the pandemic, the hospital had to update all their marketing materials with new images of patients and physicians following the appropriate guidelines in all of its sectors of care.

Although today’s bedside manner may not look the same, Robb documented intimate moments and the feeling that radiates from the hard-working hospital teams and their patients. His healthcare projects often play an integral role in capturing images of life-saving procedures and technologies. Click through to view more images from this heart-warming project.
