Speaker profile: Robert Lino

Robert Lino first got involved in photography in 1975, during his first year at high school. He went on to assist in a busy studio for 11 years before he started his own business in 1986.

He initially set up as a store front studio providing full photographic services but specialising in fine portraiture and social events. Since then he has changed locations four times, moving from a shopping centre to a home studio, back to a commercial building and now he is home based again. Despite all these changes, he’s maintained a reputation for quality and service.
