About Me

Robin Yong is a multi-award winning Travel and Commercial Photographer. He enjoys traveling to exotic destinations to befriend and photograph the locals. He is best known for his work on the Omo Valley tribes in Ethiopia, the Venetian Masked models in Venice, the Bokator boxers of Cambodia and the Maikos of Kyoto. He calls these works his Travel Portraits, his Art of Travel Medicine. For most of his works, he does not use flash, reflectors or artificial lighting, depending solely on natural lighting alone. The photos are often dramatic, colourful and extremely beautiful. For Robin, every photo must look like a movie poster...

Over the past few years, Robin has quickly become one of the most popular and influential photographers at the Venice Carnevale and within the past few months, Flowers of Ethiopia alone has gathered numerous awards, finalist status and honourable mentions in many International photography competitions, including Alfred Fried Awards, Antu Sente Cup, Australia's Top Emerging Photographers, International Photography Awards, Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award (HIPA), Istanbul Photo Awards, Moscow International Foto Awards, One Eyeland Awards. The Prix de la Photographie Paris, Sienna International Photo Awards, Tokyo International Foto Awards, Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY) Awards, Xposure Awards etc. In just slightly more than 2 years, Robin's travel photos have gathered more than 600 awards worldwide...

As of June 2018, Robin is now an Accredited Professional Photographer with the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography).

With regards to photography work, Robin is available for the following:

I am always scouting for models for interesting photo projects. I aim for award winning photographs. If you think you have what it takes, feel free to message me. Depending on the time of the year, my shooting locations are more or less fixed - Australia (Canberra / Sydney), Japan (Tokyo / Kyoto), Cuba (Havana), Italy (Milan / Venice). I am happy to do shoots at new places but models/ organisers will have to discuss/ show me the shooting locations first.
