At his core, Fisher is a storyteller. Whether words, pictures, or film, his goal is to try to tell compelling stories that resonate with people on some level.
This is not a technical ‘how to’ of street photography. Rather what Fisher talks about is philosophy, approach, mindset. There’s no discussion of gear. What
you photograph is of far more interest that what you photograph it with
. The presentation will be a look into his own philosophy, with some strong viewpoints on the art of street photography. There’ll be a few stories from the street thrown in as well.

Robert Fisher is a photographer, writer, author and ersatz documentary filmmaker. In other words, he hasn’t really decided what he wants to do when he grows up.
He has had clients use his photography to win industry awards, he has won awards for his own photography, he’s been fortunate to have three books on photography published and he has had multiple documentary films selected to film festivals.
As a freelancer, he has traveled as far as Czech Republic to cover events and has written on topics ranging from sports, to finance, to medicine and the law.
Much of his personal photography is street and documentary and has been for nearly 20 years. He’s drawn to the randomness of street photography and the challenge it presents in finding compelling pictures and telling interesting stories.
At his core, Fisher is a storyteller. Be it pictures, or words, his goal is to tell stories that make people stop and take a beat before moving on. To try to get people to think.
He’s here tonight to bloviate on his philosophy of street photography. And maybe tell a story, or two.
