In the years I’ve been doing photography, I have been lucky enough to have my work in DVD booklets, album covers, magazine covers, books on artists such as Ian & Sylvia Tyson and countless web sites for musicians such as Jo Hikk, John McDermott and The Canadian Tenors.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have a very diverse eye. When people ask me “what kind of photography do you do?” I find I struggle with the exact answer and end up putting it under the “promotional photography” umbrella. I like bringing out the best in people with my photographs. I like finding the bright light in the darkness and vice versa. I’ve worked with folk and country singers both on and off the stage, I’ve worked on film sets for slasher films and throughout it all I’ve found myself growing and always looking for fun ways of bringing out the best in something.
(Don’t worry, we’re working towards something better for the site)
My name is Robin LeBlanc. I’m 26 and live in Toronto, Canada. At the moment I’m a photographer and seem to be doing fairly well with it. You might have seen my work in a couple of magazines, the Jo HIkk album “The Game” or most likely, just somewhere on the internets.
I am an experienced videographer/editor with eight years of experience in the industry and have acquired additional training in Humber College’s film and television course. I have filmed and edited videos for such musicians as Jeff Healey, David Clayton-Thomas and Crush Luther and have filmed and edited videos for events such as the fitness trials for Miss World Canada, The Memphis Folk Alliance Conference and John McDermott’s Christmas Special
When I was young I wanted to be an actress and later on I wanted to be a filmmaker. I was educated in the Way Of Film by both my parents and film school. I’d like to think that all those movies and instruction taught me to look at things that way I do now, which of course helps in my photography.
I’m a dork. Or a geek. Or a nerd. Or whatever the hell it’s called nowadays. I play Dungeons & Dragons while watching Star Trek and have what some might consider an unhealthy obsession over The Ghostbusters.
My love of music is unmatched. Raised in a Music Business Family (my father is a respected music journalist and my mother a publicist who has had some very interesting acts) I grew up listening to and learning about a wide range of music and have since developed tastes that I like to think are a bit diverse. I’ve found that this upbringing has allowed me to be as diverse as possible. ESPECIALLY when my clients are musicians, as I can easily adapt to the genre/image they are looking for.
So that’s me. And you are?
