My name is Rob Townsend but I guess you got that by now.

I live in North Yorkshire with a wife called Ann, a dog called Jasper and another dog called Henry.

I'm currently studying for a BA (Hons) Photography degree with the Open College of the Arts.

I prefer photographs to cameras. I shoot mostly in colour but go through occasional black and white phases.

Photographers I admire: Alec Soth, Elliott Erwitt, Saul Leiter, Cindy Sherman, Larry Fink, Broomberg & Chanarin, Francesca Woodman, Eamonn Doyle, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Vivian Maier... sure there's more.
