You guys have seen my platinum blonde-haired photographer Robin Lori on my site from time to time. She shoots for me when Pink Suga is too tired or busy lol. We met last summer and have been bosom buddies every since! She is a phenomenal photographer that captures great detail and has a beautiful spirit and personality! With her bubbly personality she has been invited to shoot Oprah, many red carpet events and hired to shoot political figures and galas around Atlanta. I decided to do an interview with Robin to pick her brain about her passion which is photographer. Check out what she had to say and follow Robin on all her social media outlets at @itsrobinlori. If you are looking for a great event photographer or for any other photo services, Robin is your girl! xoxo
What made you get into the world of photography?
I was attending an Oprah convention that allowed attendees to bring cameras. I was extremely excited but didn’t know what to expect or what types of pics I would be able to capture. I’m aggressive by nature and not afraid to ask or shoot for what I want, so I placed myself with the media team while Oprah’s “All Star Team” was giving interviews. I became a part of the media and was even pulled in places behind the scenes and everything! The conference was about living your dreams, and boy was I doing just that! I got pics of everything I could and couldn’t imagine. I knew I could pursue anything at that moment and I wanted photography.
To date what has been your greatest accomplishment?
Raising my 2 boys and photographing 55 Atlanta parks. It was a huge undertaking but
I was truly honored the City trusted me with such a wonderful porject.
What do you prefer? People or shooting things or events, explain why?
Events are my specialty because I embrace the environment and retell the /event/story with pictures. But I LOVE to eat and photograph food.
In your portfolio, what has been your best celebrity photo you shot and why?
Wow, that would include one of my most recent photos of Tracey Edmonds. I was amazed at how
beautiful she is in person and hoped to capture that same beauty in my picture. To my relief,
the photo was awesome… and with no edits!
Who or what would you love to photograph?
President Obama… here I come!
