Hi, I’m Robin! I am a London-based Photographer, Editor and the Director of Makina Books. I have been taking photographs for 18 years but I specialise in contemporary portraiture; I understand the importance of a strong headshot that really stands out. Most of the photos I take are used on book jackets, websites and publicity campaigns.

I’d love to hear from you and discuss projects of all sizes, ideas, time frames and budget—please get in touch with your brief. My rates are affordable and cover all costs, including film developing, scanning, printing, editing and supplying print-ready high-resolution files
