About - Robert Watts

Here is a little about who I am...

I live in the beautiful Pacific NW with my family and one dog. During the day I work as an SRE in the Redmond/Bellevue area. I've always had a very creative side to compliment my technical skills. In the last ten years I've really picked up photography and try to make it part of my day if at all possible by carrying my camera with me in my truck as much as possible. You just never know what you'll find/see!. 

What do you enjoy about photography?

Because I deal in heavy amounts of technical everything, all day, for hours, this lets me get out and explore my creative side and have time to myself. Especially in quiet and unplugged locations or lone road trips. I end up exploring places that I normally wouldn't just think "yeah, lets go here today".

What is your style?
I want a natural look and feel that makes the viewer wish they were there by trying to make sure the photo is as close to what I saw in that moment as I took the shot. Post-processing plays just a small part in the end result. Technology is getting better, but post work is still required.

What is your favorite subject?
I really enjoy landscapes and architecture, in that order. I do on occasion take portraits (engagement/maternity/baby/kids parties/etc) for family, friends and others who ask.
