Rob Atkinson with Barakade Fotografie on an autumn photo safari in the great NW

 My name is Rob. Hello!

I love to think creatively, demonstrate that through my work, and always enjoy working with people. My creative passion is released through my photography. Dreams are meant to be lived. The way that I live my dreams is by capturing, creatively developing, and displaying photographic images in ways that reflect my creative nature.

Let me share a bit about myself. Growing up, and still to this day, my Dad (my mentor) always makes sure to capture moments in our family/friends’ lives; not only special moments, but also everyday moments of our growth and enjoyment with each other. This passion of his to capture life significantly influenced me in a way that I had never imagined growing up. I was never for sure what I wanted to do with my life or what God had in store for me. Later in life, my faith and trust that God is in control began to develop. It was at that point that a passion for photography started to fill my soul and my creative desire.

My passion started in 2008, when I was visiting a friend near Seattle, WA. I unexpectedly had a few hours to kill…just me, my Kodak point-and-shoot camera, and a beautiful day shing down on the beautiful city of Seattle. My first stop as I started walking along the waterfront enjoyed a refreshing northwest brew on a patio bordering the Seattle waterfront. As I strolled along the waterfront with no specific destination in mind, I started snapping as more and more compositions and angles caught my eye. Getting home later that evening was a turning point in my life. I was starting to realize my creative ability. This experience motivated my passion. And ever since I’ve been capturing, creatively developing, & displaying photographic images in ways that reflect my creative nature.

My professional photography is captured using high quality Canon equipment. Currently, I use:

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera
  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens
  • Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens
  • Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 lens
  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens
  • Canon Speedlite 430EX II flashes
