Originally from Central Illinois, I got to Austin, Texas in the summer of 1989. Although I had lived in other Texas cities growing up, it was Austin that got it's hooks into me. I moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas and just never got around to leaving.
Along with college, I soon became immersed in Austin's photo market by hiring on at a local photography studio. While I continued to work at the studio, I graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelors of Art in Art.
Not long after that, I officially started Robert Wood Images on a full time basis.
Although I did quite a bit of commercial and editorial work, my main focus was on my personal work. Soon my fine art work started to achieve recognition in a wide variety of exhibitions from a solo show in Portland, Oregon, to a group show to a group show in New York City, to lots of stops in-between.
These days I mostly just focus on my personal work.
