Dave Robinson


I was educated in the art of seeing at Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. Participating in the art of commercial photography brought me awards for my magazine and CD covers, posters and ad campaigns. As owner of one of Seattle's top photo studios I was asked by many of my clients to push past the accepted image of the day and to create a new way of looking at the advertising world. I was pleased to provide those services to Microsoft, Boeing and others.

I've taught photography in Seattle and exhibited in galleries as well as participated in site installations. My photographs have sold around the world. I've been a selling contributor to charities and fundraisers. I've been the president of photo clubs in Seattle, Washington and Orange County, California. I continue to be part of discussion groups, but the most exciting thing to me these days is to push my own personal visual envelope.
