Rob Brinson is a photographer, artist, and educator. For the past 29 years, he has traveled the world shooting for national magazines and major corporations.

Rob began as a fashion photographer and since then has expanded his vision into many different fields of photography. In recent years, fine art has become a major focus of his work. He is also committed to helping develop new talent in the field of photographic arts and was one of the founding owners and faculty members of Creative Circus and Portfolio Center, two of the nation’s leading art schools.

Rob’s expansive 7,000 square foot light-filled studio is located in The King Plow Arts Center of Atlanta. Once a turn-of-the-century plow factory, the complex is now a bustling creative hub for national advertising agencies, design studios, modeling agencies, galleries, as well as a performing arts theatre.

The studio’s soaring 25-foot ceilings and more than 2,000 panes of glass provide the natural light that has become the signature of Rob’s unique photographic style. With his wife, Jill Sharp Brinson, a creative director and stylist, Rob has designed a creative, stylish work environment that is both relaxing and inspiring. Together, he and his wife produce distinctively styled images for clients in advertising, fashion, interior, food, and travel. Rob believes that we all have been universally gifted with a talent of some form. It is how we use and nurture that talent that distinguishes us. In the end, Rob says, all that really matters is love.
