    Robert Easey Photography

    A really good photo shouldn’t need a caption. It should speak for itself. It should evoke a feeling, a mood, a question, a reaction in the viewer. That’s what I’m always looking for, the shot that says so much more than the others.

    What’s my story? I’m not a professional photographer. My equipment is not state-of-the-art. I’m not doing this for the money ( but money would be nice ). What I am, is someone who’s obsessed with capturing images from my immediate surroundings. Writers are always advised to write about what they know. This is what I know.

    I was born and raised in working class Milwaukee. I moved to a small town about an hour outside the city because it seemed like a good place to raise my daughter and I’m not a fan of suburbs. I drive to work (a job in advertising) through countryside that was carved out by receding glaciers which left lakes and kettles and hills - a region known as the Kettle Moraine of South Eastern, Wisconsin.

    So that’s my beat. I keep my camera bag with me when ever I can and am frequently late for work because I had to stop and shoot the morning frost (it won’t be there later!) I love rusty, weathered, lonely, abandoned, twilight, fleeting scenes.
