SPOTLIGHT ON CREATIVE: CLINT ROBERT
Introducing Clint Robert – the mastermind behind The Bloom Generation Part 1 campaign featuring DJ Rhyme! This Cali-based photographer specialises in shooting swimwear, lingerie and activewear (his instagram is seriously steamy!).
When Clint and Rhyme teamed up to shoot the first arrivals of our SS16 collection, we knew we had the dream team and what they created on the streets of Venice Beach was pure magic! We were lucky enough to have him answer a few questions for us – read on to hear more about his background in photography, favourite locations to shoot and spirit animals (real + fantasy)!
1. What is your background in photography?
I have been shooting for about six years now… I originally started working at Samy’s Camera as a salesmen – in the beginning, I didn’t know a single button or setting. I have been a professional photographer for two years now and focus mainly on fitness, swim and lingerie shoots.
2. Where and when is your favourite place to shoot?
For indoor shoots, I love shooting at sunrise with big windows pouring light into the space. If I’m on the west coast – ideally in Malibu I like shooting at sunset. Other then that, Turks and Caicos would be my all time favourite locations and I could shoot there anytime of the day.
3. What do you love most about being a photographer?
Meeting new people to photograph and being able to create an image I’m really excited about. Sometimes, I wonder how I did it!
4. What exciting projects are on the horizon for you?
I hope to keep traveling to more and more exotic locations. Each year has taken me further away from home than before… I hope to end up at Victoria’s Secret one day (shhh!).
5. Coffee or tea?
100% coffee guy.
6. Festival or night out?
Night in playing Nintendo or PC, or watching Anime.
7. What’s your spirit animal?
Fictional is Pikachu, non-fictional is a Clown Fish.
8. I couldn’t live without…?
My eyesight, I think a lot about if I lost it.
9. Last song I played was…?
10. Food fad of the moment?
I don’t have food fads… I am a very picky eater! My diet consists mainly of pizza and has my whole life, well before it became a trend.
