Photography is my Passion.  

I am not a portrait photographer, nor am I a lifestyle, event, landscape, travel, architectural, glamour, editorial, sports, or commercial photographer.  I am an equal opportunity image hunter who never passes up an opportunity to make life more vibrant.  I torture my equipment and I endure  torrents of rain and gales of bitter cold to wrestle an image into submission without a vestige of guilt.  Awards?  Yes.  I don’t look back.  Over the past year, I have been gaining full control over light – dimming the sun at will during the day and releasing its power at night.  

I picked up my first DSLR in 2010, but photography is not a means to an end for me – I  have a full-time job in Camp Zama, Japan that pays the bills and satiates the toy-cravings of my raucous nest of 4, 8, and 12-year-old daughters.   My astonishing wife tolerates my endeavors and loves me tirelessly, so that I am free to confront the next photographic challenge.  I always always learn by example and have drawn much inspiration from photographers who never bothered to learn the definition of impossible.  My aspirations are simple because I know that I can never be the world’s best photographer.

I am a photographer who makes the effort to be a little better today than I was yesterday.

Hi.  I’m Rob Shaw.  How can I help you?
