Robert Crum's Profile
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:
