About Dawn

About Dawn Robinson – Dawn Robinson Photography

Hi there, here’s a little info about me, just in case you’re curious…

I am married to David and have four wonderful sons, Mark, Matt, Niall and Nathan who happily pander to my frequent need to photograph them. We have two gorgeous dogs, Alfie and Storm, they keep us busy and accompany me on my many walks in our beautiful surroundings here in West Yorkshire.

I studied photography, a little later in life, needing to find a new career and a new me, that was seventeen years ago and it’s still the best job ever.

In 2019 I closed my studio so thank I could maintain a good home life and work balance. It was a big decision, I really loved the studio and the many people and families that visited it along with the beautiful memories that I have photographed over the years.  I have in effect, scaled down my work but am still taking commissions for outdoor family portraits and continuing to work with schools and businesses for Head shots and website photography.  I have recently become more involved with pet photography and have developed a fun new shoot working with dogs and treats.

I would describe myself as an easy going person with the ability to put even the most camera shy person at ease.

  • Best time of the day…  Early morning just before sunrise, I am often out walking Alfie or Storm.  I’m always on the lookout for something inspirational to photograph with my faithful IPhone. It’s a great way to take time out of a busy life and schedule and enables me to express my passion for photography in a beautiful and natural environment.
  • Favourite drink… Coffee, freshly ground and black!
  • What I do in my ‘spare time’…Not that there’s a lot of spare time to be had but family comes first for me, spending time with my lovely hubby, I just love it when the lads are all home together.
