Operation Smile

Robert SullivanRobert Sullivan is an award-winning photographer who also conducts local and destination workshops, instructing other photographers in several areas of photography including nature, landscape, and remote-triggered off camera flash photography. He often travels up to 12 weeks per year to places such as New Zealand, Patagonia, British Columbia, and the Galapagos Islands. His adventurous style of travel photography usually involves him staying in remote hostels, or camping in his hammock-tent so as to enable him to be onsite during the best light to capture images of scenes that have not been photographed often, or to do so from unique perspectives that other photographers don’t see or won’t even attempt. Rather than follow in the footsteps of those who photograph iconic landmarks, Robert looks for “the path less traveled” to discover unique scenes that, sometimes, even the locals don’t know about.
Robert lives on his sailboat in Miami, Florida. He uses his sailboat as a platform to transport and launch his kayaks and stand up paddleboards. Shooting from these vessels allows him to photograph places that are not easily accessible by any other means, such as the mangrove lined bays of South Florida and the Florida Keys, deep in the swamps of the Everglades, as well as the more remote rivers of Florida. In 2012, he paddled for eight days from Islamorada to Key Biscayne as the official photographer for Expedition Florida 500, capturing the scenery and the outreach efforts of this conservation group as they brought attention to the need for environmental stewardship of our waters.
