My name is Arthur Robinson and I capture moments for fun and profit.

I've been doing it for quite awhile now.

So for a quick bit of background, I'm a Fresno California native who, save for a few summer vacations, has never strayed far from his hometown. Except for that one time when I went to Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL for a couple of years and came back with a degree in Film & Video Production.

Fast forward the years I've occasionally worked production on a film set or a local commercial from time to time to now. I'm a freelance photographer based in the Central Valley specializing in three things: live music, live events, and live action.

The big three as I call it.

As good as my memory is, I honestly can't remember the moment I wanted to be a photographer, but I do remember the scene. Summer. 2012. Front row. In the audience. Taking a picture of the bassist I had a crush on with the only camera I had on me at the time. My cell phone. As all this was happening I remember thinking about what I just done, the combination of all my years of film appreciation with the techniques I was learning at home by being self-taught, this realization of not just the photo I had taken, but the moment I've captured. 

I had this awakening in me. That I had a different life now, that I was a different person and that things had happened, not just around me or near me, but to me, that I was responsible for all this, that the events leading up to that moment played out like a scene from a movie and my camera and I were taking in all these experiences in so I can share it to the rest of the public. 

Later that year, a close friend of mine let me borrow her camera during a road trip and the rest, they say, is history.

I've always been a very emotional person and I've always been an artistic person but I never had a way to express that art. To express my vision, the way I see the world, until that fateful day. I was finally doing what I was supposed to be doing. Life, love, music, moments, all these things blended together led me to a place to do what I doing. And with your help, I would like to keep doing what I'm doing and make a living out of it. 

But that's enough about me. Despite all of this, it’s honestly hard to talk about myself, but I thought I should paint a quick picture for you. I'll tell you what, though, I rather meet you in person so I can really get to know what can I do for you. So, if you please, drop me a line, we can grab a bite to eat or have a drink and chat in person and discuss crafting a work of art created specifically just for you.
