In 1999 I picked up and fell in love with my first digital camera. I knew right away there was something different about that camera. Instant gratification! A serious love affair was in the making. Much can, and has, been argued about the merits of digital photography over traditional film but in my case the only argument that really made any sense was that of the quick turn around, the ability to see and learn from each shot I took, and the ability to edit my own shots and create a distinctive form of art not available to me before. I quickly saw both the advantage and fun of being able to create digital art.
I consider myself a serious, life long student of photography. Each shot is a new lesson, and I hope to continue to learn as long as I live. One of the most important lessons I have learned is that light has a magic quality and that my camera can be made to capture that magic. The magic is often found in unexpected places but I have learned to seek out those places. One of my greatest joys is to be invited to share in someone else’s most special moments. The feeling I get from being able to record the memories of those special moments is what I enjoy most about being a photographer.
Brian Wellman, former administrator at 'Digital Photo Contest' and a former assistant at 'On Request Images' said this about me: Born and raised in rural Indiana, educated as an historian and teacher at Purdue University, and following a 32 year career as a law enforcement officer and administrator, baby boomer Quentin Robinson is looking forward not back through the lens of his camera and sharing what he sees. Quentin has an eye and a heart for drama and tragedy, wonder and triumph. He uses his photography as well to give vent to a creative side that feeds not only on his attraction to the attitudes, activity, vibrancy and cultural diversity of the city but is also nurtured by his deeply rooted appreciation of the people, traditions, and beauty of rural America.
