5 minutes with...Photographer Jeff Robson

How old where u when you took your first photo and what was it of? I can’t remember exactly, sometime when I was a small child. I think it was on a family vacation and my parents let me shoot a whole roll by myself only to find in the end the prints were all taken of clouds.

What is your Polaroid camera and film of choice and are you all about flash or natural light? Polaroid SLR 680. 600 film. I don’t remember the last time I used a flash.

If your photos where a soundtrack what songs would they be? Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antenna to Heaven

Tells us a little bit about you? Why you are who you are and what you want to be taking photos of in 5 years. I can’t seem to stay in one place for too long. So taking photos gives me something to do when I can’t paint and when I’m traveling. And maybe the only reason it’s the only thing I’m obsessed about is because it gives me some way to relate to the world from a distance and not have to be involved, and not feel too awkward about that situation. I have no idea what I will be doing in five years.

Do you shoot other film mediums? If yes what's your fave film and camera of choice ? I don’t shoot too much Polaroid anymore, just on those special occasions. Mainly now it’s 35mm with my Olympus XA, maybe the Natura Classica sometimes.

What's your favorite photo you have ever taken and why? Don't be shy. Tell us a story.... tend to like everything at one point or another, for various reasons and then I get tired of that and move on, so no specific image stays my favorite for too long.

Thanks for your time Jeff, we look fwd to seeing more of your light filled snap shots of awesomeness soon.

  1. Glad you found Jeff off GiG. Jeff is a super humble cat that is one hell of a photographer. One of my biggest inspirations.
