Robert Crum's Profile

About

My metier is evocative images of nature and travel. I try to capture those magical moments when, in the words of poet Richard Wilbur, "the air is awash with angels."

Years ago I earned a masters degree in fine arts -- not in photography, but in poetry. Shortly after that, I got a contract from Simon & Schuster to write two children's books, one on kids in Native American powwows and another on kids who compete in rodeos. The books needed photographs, and I volunteered to produce the images -- and in the process I absolutely fell in love with photography.

My photographs have appeared in:
Sierra Magazine
Los Angeles Times
Popular Photography
Motorland Magazine
Brio Magazine

----------------------------
Note that I typically do not sign and date the photographs, simply because the company I use for printing does such a good job in packaging -- the prints are sealed in plastic, and the external cardboard is strong and durable -- that I don't want to interrupt the shipping process by re-opening the packages. However, if you would like a signature, I am happy to sign and date a transparent adhesive label that you can affix to the back of the print. Just let me know and I'll send it in a separate mailing.
