Story
Tagline
Commercial band photographer specializing in cd & album covers, promos, press kits, and custom music photography.
Introduction
Russ Robinson is a commercial band photographer in Tampa, FL specializing in promotional imagery for musicians & bands all over the US, including CD/album covers, press kits, promos, portraits, and custom music photography.  

His style is usually described as being crisp, vibrant, hi-def, and sharp as a tack, and his clients frequently remark that his imagery has helped them tremendously in terms of getting noticed in the crowded music industry.  

Russ has also carved out quite a name for himself through the creation of stunning digital composites, where he shoots an artist in one location (usually his studio) and then artificially places them into a completely different scene in Photoshop.  This opens up a number of distinct creative possibilities that just wouldn't be feasible otherwise.  

Most importantly, Russ is best known for his unwavering willingness to literally bend over backwards for his clients, and the fact that most of them continue to return to him for their promotional photos year after year is a testament to this.  Visit Russ’s portfolio website at:
