On the road again...

Bob Anderson grew up in Glasgow, Scotland where we spent more time at Kelvingrove Art Gallery than on the football pitch.  At the tender age of 19, seeing little prospects in continuing to sell gentleman's undergarments for a living, he headed south and attended art school where he learned about graphic design and photography. Three years later armed with a new diploma, a decent portfolio, a dashing silk scarf, and a Nikon he managed to secure a job as an assistant with a BIG name London photographer where among other things, he developed a taste for nice things and good wine. He returned to Scotland in the early 70's to shoot for the Scottish Opera Company and other Arts organizations,for a few years before catching a boat to Canada to seek his fortune in the New World.  One thing led to another and before too long he was making a reasonable living shooting pictures, working with magazines, corporations and advertising agencies.  Somehow along the way he didn't sell his soul. Today he likes to spend his time between Canada and the high desert of Marfa, Texas - doing what he likes most… shooting pictures for himself and making books.  An overview of older work is available at "a long time ago".

If you are interesting in buying or licensing any of the images on this site, or discussing an upcoming project, he would love to hear from you.
