About me

Born in Aberdeen and growing up in Newcastle, Robin Sinha moved to London in 2003. After completing a BA in Photography at the London College of Communication (UAL), Robin began assisting at London’s Big Sky Studios, working alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. His personal freelance photography career began soon after. Robin describes his photography as ‘people-led’. Although commercially he may move in other directions, people are what he’s mostly interested in. With a passion for street photography, he prefers to wander the streets without preconceived ideas and a sense of curiosity. He brings this mind-set to his portraiture while attempting to unveil an aspect of his sitter’s personality. In 2009, Robin joined Leica UK where he works part-time as an Akademie Ambassador and lead photography workshop tutor. In 2018 Robin was shortlisted for two prestigious photography awards: The Portrait of Britain and the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize.
