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 had always assumed that I would end up back in Illinois, but like many others, 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. Around this time, my work started to be represented by Swanstock Fine Art Photography Specialists.

Not long after that, I officially started Robert Wood Images on a full time basis.

Although I dabbled in 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 in New York City, to lots of stops in-between. My
Becky series was especially popular.

These days, although I still enjoy the occasional commercial or editorial job, my primary focus remains to be on my personal work. Most recently, that has been the
Visual Chatter series.
