Meet the Photographer

Rob Farrands

I learned to handle a camera and use a dark room at university guided by my friend David Sawyer. He also drew me into being his assistant on the University newspaper. 

From the beginning I have taken photography seriously although I did not pursue it as a career until much more recently.  I began my career outside of photography by being called to the Bar and practising in London.

Since becoming a full time photographer I have qualified as an Associate of the British Institute of Professional Photography. I use photography to support local communities; also the charity Soundabout in its use of music to enhance the lives of disabled children and their families.  I exhibited monochrome landscape pictures in March 2019 at St John's College.

 I am currently working on a project to raise awareness of the risk to health of reduced human contact during the Covid pandemic.


What People Have Said

“Magnificent display of your talent.  I was really struck by the Sunburst at Iffley Lock.  All your pictures convey an atmosphere of calm contemplation or reflection.  Thank you very much.”
