Gregg Robinson was born and raised in Zimbabwe. It was an outdoor upbringing that developed his love for the flora, fauna and ambience of the African bush. An early career in wildlife guiding on the Zambezi and in Hwange, combined with graduation from the UNISA School of Business, equipped him with an impressive set of mental and physical tools – if the right outlet could be found for them. But it was his eye for colour, detail, and – vitally important – artistic flair that led him into photography.
Gregg refers to the bush as his ‘back yard’, and draws on his talents to capture its almost mystical appeal via the medium of the camera lens. He has the ability – another essential characteristic – not only to ‘see’ a picture, but to apply the technical knowledge necessary to translate it into a striking image.
Gregg founded Savannah Studios and the Savannah Conservation Trust, through which his photographic talents can contribute to the survival of African wildlife and wilderness.
