Check Out Robin Gamble’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Robin Gamble of Robin Gamble Photography.  

Hi Robin, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Telling a story through my lens has been such a blessing. I’ve been taking photos for over 15 years and had a camera for about 8 years. I had no clue what I was doing but I think I was getting lucky. Three years ago at my sister’s wedding, I took some photos and said to myself damn these photos are amazing. Once I returned I started my photography business Robin Gamble Photography. I hit the ground running and wound up landing a contract teaching photography to kids at Focus: Hope. I was nervous because I’ve never taught photography and I didn’t know much about the camera but through prayer and hard work I wrote a curriculum and started teaching. When the students were learning I was literally learning. But once the world shut down in 2020 I really mastered my craft. 

I love photography but I also have a love for documentary films. I am currently producing, directing, filming, and editing a 30-minute segment on the network and we are set to launch on May 1, 2022. My goal this year was to shoot for magazines and I am so happy that Blac Magazine has hired me for photoshoots. My photos have been everywhere, I’ve had photo shoots across the United States and out of the country, and sometimes I have to pinch myself because I am actually doing exactly what I love to do. Photography saved my life. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I didn’t have obstacles because I am in living my truth and on my path and I believe when you’re on your path nothing stands in your way. 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am not just a photographer/videographer I am an artist. There is a difference between someone that just takes photos and collects a check and then there is someone that waits for moments. I wait for moments and those moments are what matter. I am known for moments and getting the shot. A lot of my clients can spot my work without me saying anything. Every person that books a shoot with me is treated like family. I have several clients that have not taken a professional photo before and are nervous. I personally know what it is like to feel that way as I am not an in-front-of-the-camera type of person so I can relate. 

I am so proud that I am accomplishing goals and people are talking about me in a good way. I’ve worked really hard getting my name out there. What sets me apart is I wait for the moment and tell a story through my lens. 

What has been the most important lesson you’ve learned along your journey?
Not to compare my work to other photographers/videographers. Stay true to who you are and how you shoot.
