Professional Photography

Robert Bellon


Cape Town, South Africa

Since the dawn of recorded time it was the Chinese philosopher Mozi who spoke about the Camera Obscura. Then in 1885 George Eastman called his first camera a Kodak – followed by his Brownie – the worlds first mass market device. But it was Steve Sasson, a Kodak engineer who was the pioneer of the first digital camera in December 1975.

Sasson never realised that what he had created was a digital revolution, our current century’s popular mobile digital click box. No other device has captured the imagination of so many millions, with the subsequent flood of mobile phones.

Most smartphones provide superb quality at the touch of a button. Sasson’s digital camera converts light into an electrical charge, then recorded on a memory card. Nothing short of a modern miracle !

With social media at the forefront of our communication, pictures shift emotions that can topple governments or buy stuff worth millions or just to say “Hi”.

Images are humankind’s means of communication, since we are creatures of emotion and instinct rather than simply of words.

Enjoy your photography.
Make every picture your own personal masterpiece.

I stumbled across Robert when participating in the Wool Ride as part of Wool Week at the V&A Waterfront. One of the organizers, Dalena was kind enough to email me a few of the pics and I was so blown away by how fresh and engaging his images were. I needed a shoot in a tight timeline and Robert was kind enough to assist and has come up with an amazing selection of images which we are going to be able to use as part of our image bank for Den Anker. I would recommend Robert for any interior, exterior or event shooting as I believe he has a versatile style of photography that works for a range of applications.
