About - Sam Robinson
  • My Catalan mother and English father encouraged me to be whatever I wanted in life, and inspired me with their cultural differences to be fascinated by people. I love what I do and I love watching the way people talk and interact with each other, and most of my photography is about trying to capture those emotions. Communication and relaxation define my style – they’re the tools I use to get something authentic from my subjects. I’m constantly seeking honesty, personalities and stories, and it’s my intrigue in people that helps me achieve those moments. When I shoot I’m not just trying to create something, I’m studying the way people behave, watching how they respond and using that understanding to get the best image in camera.

    Making a natural moment often takes a large crew of people, which means you get to have have a hell of a lot of fun while you do it. I’m lucky enough to have a great team around me, who help me work at the pace that I want to work and create what I want to create. We shoot very loose and keep things relaxed, putting people into a space and just seeing what they do.
