Robert was educated at Palomar College and California State University at Northridge with emphasis in radio, television, photography and film.
While Robert was living on the coast of Long Beach, overlooking the Queen Mary Ship, his photographic career began with a bolt...or four bolts..of lightning! The night before Robert had decided to leave his Title Insurane position, a storm came in. It was full of thunder and lightning. Robert captured an image of four lightning bolts over the Queen Mary Ship. The image has sold over 600 copies. Robert traveled from the tip of Baja California to the Artic Circle in Alaska-2500 miles, crossing the continental divide more than 50 times and 300 rolls of film later. This was after his live passage turning point..a heart attack. He decided he would pursue his first love - photography. Thus began his photographic journey of self-discovery. Robert took photographs everywhere he went. The road home was a journey also. He finished with three days of R & R in Las Vegas. He founded Photography DuCoeur in 1998.
