Michael Robinson composes details in architecture and interiors, capturing their essence – the purpose and the vision within the design.
A summer trip to Europe when he was 16 captivated Michael’s interest in photography. That fall semester Michael enrolled in his first photo class and it would change his life forever. By winter break Michael had built a working darkroom in his basement and went on to be newspaper photographer his senior year winning Kansas School photo journalism awards.
Michael attended the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California 1 month after graduating High School. Being immersed in a photo centric environment Michael thrived, and more often than not could be found in the darkrooms on campus. Michael graduated from Brooks with honors, packed up and moved to Chicago to pursue a career photographing Architecture and Interiors. After years gaining invaluable experience in Chicago, he decided to return to his hometown of Kansas City. He reconnected with his now wife whom he has known since middle school, where they started a family and they have 2 kids and 2 dogs.
