Hi, I'm Rob and I have been photographing professionally since 1996, and am one of Fiji's most renowned photographers. As a former graphic designer, an artistic eye plays heavily in how I compose my shots. I love to travel, and have published 20 photographic books in Fiji, Australia and Germany. 
I'm very easy going - I picked up that friendly nature from my Fijian Mum, who I also happen to share a birthday with. Even though I'm laid back, I am very serious about my work - a trait I picked up from my English Dad! 
I'm incredibly blessed to have loving family around me - I'm a father of 4! Married for 16 years and counting, its always an honor to be there at the start of every wedding and witness a journey of love that is invariably challenging, but definitely fulfilling if steered right.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am based in Fiji, but am able to shoot anywhere else in the Pacific and beyond. A travel fee will be worked out depending on location.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been in business since 1992! I started my own graphic design studio while I was still in high school, and as part of the job, had to pick up a camera and shoot commercially for a number of years. Soon I progressed to Travel/Resort photography, but I kept away from weddings until I shot my first one in 2008. Since then, I have shot over 70 weddings as the main photographer.  
Although demand for wedding photographers in Fiji was and still is high, I choose to limit the number of weddings I shot to 10-15 a year, to ensure that each one is as special to me as it is to you.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I like to capture your story, shooting a documentary style, with only minimal manipulation/posing.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

I have half day at USD$1,500 and full day USD$2,500 packages. I also offer follow-you multi-day packages to capture a unique documentary of your whole destination wedding experience.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I can definitely Skype, as well as FaceTime or Facebook Message/Chat.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I'm pretty much self-taught. There were no classes available to me when I was growing up in Fiji. I have held my own workshops/classes to pass on knowledge.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

If I'm not taking photo's, I'm having kids! Well it seems like it anyway... I'm a father of 4, and soon to be a father of 5.
