Justin Robinson: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

My friends. I'm surrounded by
amazing, talented, hardworking
people. Toronto doesn't even know
what it has.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

Small town man, living in the big city.

Why do you do what you do?

It's what makes me truly happy.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

It was about two or three years ago,

when I bought my first camera. After

having shoulder surgery, I couldn't

work and bought a camera on a whim.

From the first day I had it, I knew I

had found my calling--something I

had to get into, and fast!

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

With most other artists, money and

time are huge hurdles. I work full

time in retail, so finding time to

develop a career while working 45

hour weeks can be tough.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I think just about everything I see is
an inspiration. There is so much going
on around me at any time, and all of it
helps me with my work. As for
inspiring people, I can't say for
certain, but I hope that my work
sparks something in at least a few

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

My first camera broke not long after

buying it, and for eight months after

I gave up on learning more about

photography. I then met my mentor

Tara Noelle, and she helped me get a

new camera and get back into it. My

partner is also a huge inspiration/

model for me. I've learnt to just keep

going for what makes me happy.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Everything I do is an action to get me

into photography/modeling full time.

I want nothing more than to travel

and create beautiful work. 

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Do what you love, and do it right.

Don't put half of your energy into something. It only makes it a waste. 

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Never turn down a learning
