About Me

Who is Rob Jemmett

I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, studied computer science in college and worked for an international reinsurance company for over 30 years where I was fortunate enough to travel around the world for business.  Through this travel, I was given opportunities to not only see different parts of the world, I could meet people in those people and get a taste of different cultures around the globe.  Meeting and talking to people is one of my favourite things.

I was physically active, biking, running, curling, playing hockey but my greatest passion was golf.  However in 2011, these activities were brought to an abrupt halt when I injured my back playing hockey.  The injury required some surgery, which was a complete success, however it put an end to most of my sporting actives.  Thats when my wife, Sandra,  bought me a DSLR camera which put me on a more creative path as a hobby.

When I first started taking pictures, I had the camera in "auto" mode and the camera took great quality pics.  However, it wasn't until I took some photography courses I learned the technical aspects of the camera and eventually fundamentals of composition where I gained an understanding of the "artistic" side of taking a photograph and doing post-processing.

Checkout my blog where I share a picture,  the compositional technique and camera settings for the image.




With a camera, a neutral density (ND) filter, and a tripod, you can create a long exposure and achieve results of a waterfall that are unlike what your eye would see in real life.

Taking a portrait of someone is a great responsibility.  Not only do I want to take a great picture as a photographer, but I also want to make sure the subjects are seen in their best light.
