“I think of photographs as not so much for viewing now, as for viewing later in life. They’re all about looking back, remembering, being nostalgic.”

A Bay Area native, Robert is the “tech” guy behind Jessamyn Photography. With a strong, fine art photography background, Robert’s talent, ingenuity and candid approach are evident in every image. His work has been featured in the Danville Fine Arts Gallery, and as a testament to the timeless style of his photography, the City of Hayward has purchased Robert’s photographs for their permanent collection. Passion for his craft has led Robert to teach a number of workshops; he has been actively involved in many photographic organizations and is highly regarded for his expertise and innovation. Robert’s well-known and treasured ability for providing clients with a relaxed, fun and stress-free atmosphere is a hallmark of Jessamyn Photography.
