Rob Paine picked up his first camera before he turned seven. He rarely has been seen without one in his hands since.
He inherited is love of photography from his dad, who was a talented amateur photographer. Rob began his professional photography career while still in high school by shooting youth soccer games for local weeklies in Fairfax, Va.
After graduating from Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, Va., with a BA in Journalism, Rob pursued a career in photojournalism, working for newspapers in North Carolina, Virginia and New Jersey, covering everything from community news to professional sports to U.S. presidents. Rob won dozens of state press association awards for his photography as well as for his reporting over a 15- year period, during which he also directed two photo staffs for large community weekly chains. He then moved to photo editing, working for the world’s largest wire service for nine years in Washington D.C. His photography has also appeared in national magazines.
