Welcome! I'm Robert Killips.  

I have been a photojournalist for over 25 years and I have a passion for documentary and visual storytelling.

For me it started when I was in the Navy in the early 1970's as a medic working in a teaching hospital where the doctors needed photos to document their work. I used their cameras loaded with slide film at first, and with some encouragement I soon bought my own gear. But it wasn't until I began developing film and making B&W prints that I became forever hooked. Watching those images appear in the developer was just magical to me and I remember those days well.
