Robert G. Earnest currently resides in Vancouver, BC Canada. Born in Texas, Robert spent his early youth traveling with his military family and living on Air Force and Marine Corps Bases. In the tenth grade he returned to Memphis, TN. settling in to live with his Daddy. After graduating high school, turned down the Air Forces offer of OCS and Flight School which had always been his goal as a child and instead accepted a Music Scholarship to attend Memphis State University. After a couple of years it seemed time to move to California, get a beach house on the Balboa Peninsula, learn how to use a skateboard, a surfboard, and a waterbed. He found a job at The Disneyland Hotel, went back to school where he changed his major to Marketing and Advertising.
After being given a camera for Christmas by a girlfriend, it was there that he found photography. One elective course hooked him and before he could say cheese he had graduated from OCC School of Photography. Continuing studies for his Commercial Photography Certification led to assisting for five years and eventually opening his first studio.
Now based out of Vancouver and working everywhere, he is astonished to have never done anything else since that first experience with a Canon AE1 so long ago.
