31 Days of Photographers that Inspire: Day 16: Shelby Robinson

Day 16: Shelby Robinson

You can view her work on Facebook or her website at


Another artist who is out there making magic with her camera that is well beyond her years has been inspiring me for several months now. Her conceptual self portraits are instantly identifiable as hers and each image takes me into a dream world that she has created.  It doesn’t hurt that she’s breathtakingly beautiful with her gorgeous red hair that is always full of motion and plays an important role in all of her images.

Being so young, it’s fun to read through her Facebook posts and watch as she quickly gained a following for her work. She truly lets her positive energy and personality shine through in all of her posts and truly appreciates the people that love her images.  She is very approachable and interactive with her fans by asking them questions and giving thoughtful responses to them. She has a genuinely caring nature that will only help her grow an audience that appreciates her even more.

One thing that I found so inspirational is that for the majority of her photographic career she used a canon rebel, proving artistic vision shouldn’t be hindered if you’re not ready to invest in the most expensive equipment.

Shelby often posts before and afters of her images to give you an idea of how she achieved her incredible vision and has a fun YouTube fast edit to watch her work.
