What do you love most about your job?
My love to exceed the expectation of my customers. In a big corporate environment you don't feel the extend of your contribution or acceptance by your peers. But in my photography services, the feedback is immediate. It brightens my day.
Here are some testimonials:
"Robin has a great eye! He knows how to showcase the home it its best light (literally!) His photos show the best angles and are very clear. He took pictures from inside looking out to the panoramic view and they turned out beautifully."
RE/MAX Estate Properties
"Robin did a fabulous job photographing my listing. He was polite, on time, and the shots turned out great. The homeowner was very happy with the photos and said he liked that they didn't look like every other listing on the market. The angles and lighting Robin used were perfect. I will definitely call Robin on my next listing . Thanks ! "

What inspired you to start your own business?
Why photography? Why now?
Well, prior to owning rkpodderFOTO, I was an engineer working for Northrop Grumman. My job was to develop technology for aerospace.
After retiring early, I went to Film School at UCLA, learned the trade. I directed and produced award winning feature and documentary films. I felt the same challenge of innovation in creating something.
Later I realized it would be unsustainable to continue an 18 hour work day and coordinate with lots of people. In 2014, I started a local photography business. It became mentally more challenging.
I have to develop my unique STYLE
I brings vast skill set and creative mind to photography. In real estate photography either there is a lack of dimensions using just a point-and-shoot camera or over editing resulting in a 'fake' look.
Whereas in Portrait and Headshot photography, the challenge is to connect with the living breathing subject. I know that very well. I directed actors and crew members and brought out the best on the set. Find out what's in their mind. The technical aspects come later.
Every day is a new day and new venture. Nothing mundane. That's what I like most!
Why should our clients choose you?
I bring over 20 years of film making and multi media producing skills to photography. I am an expert in storytelling through lenses.
When it's a real estate photography, I see each property through the point of view of a prospective buyer. What attracts me and what's not so important. Is there anything unique to this property?
I make a mental list of room by room shots before the shooting starts.
When it's a corporate portrait, Headshot or family portrait:
I hold a separate session to understand the need and purpose of the photo shoot. I discuss with them the suitable dresses, make up and shooting option to make their story comes out vividly.
From December 1997 to November 2005.
At 55, I retired from Northrop Grumman to pursue my dream to create media entertainment. Specifically, I wanted to write and direct a feature film. Even though, I directed and wrote multiple theatrical plays, I had no formal education in film making. I went to UCLA film school for couple of years, while planning to produce my first film, "Storm in the Afternoon". It was screened in at USA and International festival circuits. I worked in these highly competitive industry for over 10 years.
From January 2006 to October 2012.
Developed corporate product video, infomercials and Business prints. Exclusively used PremierePro, Photoshop and Finalcut for video editing and audition for sound.
From November 2012 to December 2013.
Worked and learned professional digital photograph and became an active contributor for Stock Photo houses like, Shutterstock, iStock, Adobestock, Dreamline, Bigstock and FineArtsAmerica.
In Home Photography Studio
I have been constructing a fully mobile studio to do Portrait, Headshot and Commercial Product. It's 100% functional now with lights, backdrops, cameras and necessary scrims, reflectors and modifiers. I am glad that I am expanding my services.
