Robb-with-Leaf-2-sm

"Hello Robb, 

 

On behalf of the Miami office I wanted to thank you for such a tremendous effort in photographing so well, the many projects here that have waited for that opportunity. Because of the tight financial times, we had held off photographing a number of buildings and projects – that span across Office, Educational, Justice and Interiors sectors. I was especially happy to have you photograph the Cayman Islands projects that Miami designed over the past 7 years or so. The quality of the images, clarity and attention to light and the variations of daytime, dusk, nighttime, exterior architecture, interior architect and lastly detail shots provide us with a wealth of new portfolio images that will help win new work and raise the profile of AECOM / Miami. 

 

The reaction here to the images across the office has been great to the point that we are already compiling a list of projects that we would like you to consider adding to your schedule the next time you come south. Looking forward to receiving the CD’s containing the high resolution images and Robb, thanks again."

"We have had great success working with Robb and know that we can drop him into complex situations with our most important customers and end up with the right set of creative images. He's very flexible in meeting our needs and creates opportunities where other photographers might only see challenges. On a recent shoot of the new CityCenter in Las Vegas, Robb covered a lot of ground in a very small window. At the end of the day, it was hard to narrow down which final images were our favorites, which is a great problem to have."

"After spending hundreds of millions of dollars creating exciting communities, we rely on Robb to capture that excitement in images. His images will motivate our buyer to see themselves in that setting. Robb’s background in design makes him ideally suited for the types of projects we ask him to shoot in showcasing great places and people using them. We know that he will use his cameras to artistically capture the most important elements of each of our projects. His ability to work independent of any direction beyond our initial meeting is rare and makes his services even more invaluable. When we want it done right the first time, we start by calling Robb." 

Tom Morton, Sr. VP

"Photography is a vital component of our corporate identity and finding photographers who meet our expectations both in their quality of work and professionalism is rare. Robb has both of these attributes, he’s able to work autonomously but also take’s direction which is important when building trust in new working relationships. He was tasked with a broad brief as our business is diverse and complex, and importantly he took the time to research and understand us. We now have a huge range of images to choose from which capture the essence and character of our employees, and the landscape of our operations. His manner with people means he is easy to work with and he’s light on his feet so there’s minimal disruption to the business. Fantastic imagery and I look forward to working with him again." 

Oonagh Law, Coordinator 

Rio Tinto, Corporate Communications 

"Having known Robb for over twenty years, I have had the pleasure of serving with him as a veteran in the US military, sharing studio reviews with him thru our years in design school, and promoting his valuable contributions to the design community as both an accomplished photographer and landscape architect. He is an exceptional individual with a unique capacity to comprehend the built environment. If there is one constant in Robb’s diversity as a photographer, it is his unwavering passion for capturing the essence of place that permeates all of his efforts/work. His imagery speaks for itself. It is dynamic, inspiring and modern. He brings a sensibility and confidence to his process that is captivating and collaborative and a quality of workmanship that is without compromise. As a client, colleague and friend, I would recommend Robb without reservation."  

Rich Sharp, Principal 

Studio Five Design 

"Robb worked with us here and outside the U.S. to illustrate many strengths that separate us from our competition. His images seem so very natural to me that I know they'll resonate with our clients, adding to our brand by effectively telling the story of a day in the life of our company. He showed our people at their best. You can see that they love what they do, as Robb captured their can-do spirit though great images of everyday tasks. In doing so, Robb showed us that he also loves what he does and, for me, that defines a great fit."  

Sally Leible, President and COO

"Over the last ten years, Robb has continually captured the finest images of our work at the Aspen Parks Department. His images have enabled us to win national and state design awards, establish budgets for new improvements, and educate the public about our special projects and how they help the environment and preserve resources.  

Recently I had Robb work with us to showcase the improvements to our Public Golf Course in Aspen that we designed, built, manage, and maintain. Robb was able to put a fresh face on the marketing for the course using new vantage points and showing off the new features that make it one of the best municipal golf courses in the country. The same trip, Robb photographed several parks and also a raw piece of land crucial to connecting a regional trail system between Aspen and its neighbors. The photos were essential in helping building consensus to acquiring the property and protecting a key access and view corridor. His versatility and easy going nature is refreshing. Thank you Robb for your continued efforts in showing what we do day to day."  

Jeff Woods, ASLA, Manager 

City of Aspen Park & Recreation 

 

“We tasked Robb with a very complex, concept-driven photo shoot. The schedule was extremely tight, and Robb delivered. He was committed to the project and was a pleasure to work with.” 

Jennifer Hohn, Art Director 

Burns Marketing Communications 

 

"We tasked Robb with the assignment of an employee testimonial shoot for our new website. He was not only able to capture the staff but to illustrate the beauty of life at work. His photos speak for themselves. The lighting, art direction and storytelling of his images connect the viewer to the scene. He is a pleasure to work with. He takes direction well and listens to your needs. I have had many compliments on the photos from the shoot. It would be a pleasure to work with him again." 

Linda Skaufel, E-Marketing Coordinator 

Pilatus Business Aircraft 

 

"During the launch of Landmark Aviation, and later StandardAero, we needed to create new websites, new advertising, and new collateral pieces. We had virtually no photography to support these projects. While many photographers only create a handful of images, Robb was able to create nothing short of libraries in a very short time. His photojournalistic approach brought out the true essence of our organization - our employees. We have had countless positive comments about his work.  

From a customer perspective, Robb is one of the most accommodating and flexible photographers in the industry. It is interesting to watch employees as Robb crafts his way around our facilities. He has the ability to put his subjects at ease and provides virtually no interruptions to work. I cannot say enough about Robb. He is truly a pleasure to work with. There are only a handful of photographers that I would recommend and Robb is at the top of the list.

Craig Voelker 

Manager, Marketing Communications 

StandardAero 

 

"I've hired a lot of photographers over the years. Robb is a rare talent. He's a clydesdale with a fantastic work ethic. He's flexible, positive, creative, patient and accomodating. He listens and gets it. His technical proficiency is at a tour de force level, and you see that in his work, along with a very sharp eye for light, people and design. He could double his rates and still be a bargain. He pushes himself and I'm always impressed with the results." 

David W. Almy, CEO 

Marketing Research Association 

"Robb delivers excellent value for his services and consistently thought of ways to improve the shoot while on location and in pre-production. I was completely at ease with Robb interacting with clients on his own--he's professional, respectful of the client's property and operating hours and above all, trustworthy. When Robb commits to your project, he makes sure you walk away happy."  

Kelli McDonald, Owner 

Chiaroscuro Concepts 

 

"We’ve used Robb for a majority of our assignments over the past decade, from our advertising photography to location shoots across the country, and he has always impressed us with his beautiful photography and his professionalism. Whether shooting people, airplanes, or outdoor landscapes, he’s always come through with strong images that communicate our desired message. He listens to what we need, and he delivers. On top of all that, he’s a real pleasure to work with.

Amy Freed Stalzer

"Robb beautifully showcased our projects with sensitivity to the various sites, lighting and unique characteristics of each. We appreciate his working closely with us prior to the photo shoots to assess our projects potential and confirm his understanding of our needs. Robb is a consummate professional but easy to work with and we enjoyed the time he spent in Tampa Bay, Florida. The results of his work are beautiful and will be a tremendous asset to us as we market our services in the future. 

My father was a nationally-recognized professional photographer, so I know what it takes to reach this level. I commend Robb on his talent and hard work! We look forward to working with him again in the future! 

Philip H. Graham, Jr., FASLA, AICP, LEED AP Managing Principal 

PHIL GRAHAM STUDIO 

"Robb Williamson adds a degree of artistic finesse to his photography that brings our projects out in their best light. As a landscape architect himself, he understands the dimensions of a space and is able to capture the story - both in the details and in sweeping contextual vistas." 

Robert W. Smith, FASLA, Principal 

DHM Design 

“Robb is always a pleasure to work with. His portfolio obviously shows off his photographic skills, but we really appreciated how Robb blended his expertise in landscape architecture and photography to best show off our work. Robb seemed to instinctively know what we needed, whereas other photographers often needed a lot more direction. I could trust him to do a great job - saving me time and worry - and my team was always really happy with the final product.” 

Kerrilyn O'Rourke, Marketing Manager McWhinney 

 

"Robb's architectural and design photography has been an asset to DTJ's portfolio. His keen eye and ability to capture the energy of a project has made our relationship a great success. With a unique dual background as a designer and photographer, Robb understands our project goals, allowing his images to stand above the rest. He has given us an edge in our industry awards competitions and made our collateral materials powerful. Robb's enthusiasm for his work and passion for photography, makes him a pleasure to work with!

"Robb has worked with the City of Aspen since 2001 creating high quality, memorable photographic collections of Aspen's parks and recreatonal spaces. These photographs are constantly being referenced and used in the City's printed and electronic marketing materials, public presentations, and project award submittals. Given Robb's background and his superior skills and eye, he is always the first person we call for our photography needs." 

Scott Chism, Project Manager / Parks Planner 

City of Aspen Parks Department 

"Robb's background as a landscape architect is very valuable in terms of being able to capture images of our projects with a trained eye. He knows what we are looking for and has represented our work at a level that exceeds our expectations. Robb has met our schedules and budget requirements with great flexibility and professionalism, not to mention that his excellent photography reflects our projects beautifully."

"We have had Robb photograph many of our projects over the last decade plus. His work has been instrumental in our receiving many prestigious awards for our projects. We have also used his pictures in many of our more successful marketing pieces." 

Erik Christensen, Business Developer 

ValleyCrest Landscape - Colorado 

 

"I have hired Robb to photograph many projects for award entry competitions and marketing pieces. His skill level is nonpareil, as he possesses the eye of a licensed landscape architect, coupled with years of technical expertise behind the lens. He understands how to get the best photo, and will always give that extra effort to get me outstanding results. In a way he makes my job harder because he always delivers hundreds of stunning photographs and I can typically only select 15 to use in an award entry! Although I have not tracked our awards history together, I can not recall not winning a competition with his work. As they say… a picture is worth a thousand words." 

Blake Williams 

Business Developer 

CoCal Landscape Construction 

"Robb photographed some projects for us on both coasts including Crystal Cove in Newport Coast, California and Patriots Place and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusettes. He did a consistently GREAT job on both and I now have some dynamic, new marketing images to use in my collateral. Thanks Robb!"

"I have had the pleasure to work with Robb Williamson for many years. He is an extremely hard worker and always exceeds my expectations when it comes to top notch photography and client service. He will do whatever it takes to make his clients happy and deliver a product that sets them apart from the pack. I would recomend Robb to anyone who is looking for great service and a real impact for their business." 

Greg White, Associate

“Robb is a master behind the camera. His landscape architecture background helps him capture the true feelings and special quality of spaces and designs. Robb has a special ability to "get the picture you really want" and also come back with something you did not expect. He is a pleasure to work with and I look forward to the next opportunity.” 

Shane Lekwa, Principal

"Robb, we can’t thank you enough for the beautiful work you did. The photographs are just stunning, and will make a world of difference in terms of promoting the project. Thanks again – we look forward to working with you on other projects this summer."
