About Robert

Hola! My name is Robert Pugh. I’m a family man, pet lover, father and explorer. I’m passionate about travelling with the love of my life Lisa, spending time with my son Jonathan and taking long walks with Lilly my Jack Russell and best friend. I’ve lived in Manchester where I grew up as a child for some sixteen years before moving to Bolton, Hexham Northumberland. Joining the armed forces, living in Gibraltar, Spain, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, Africa, Traveling around Europe and ending in Slough Buckinghamshire before moving to Reading, Berkshire for the best part of eight years. Add that up, and it makes me forty-two years old. I’m currently still Living in Reading and available for travel worldwide. I have a wide range of interests but they all centre around creating and communicating with people (I love to talk, and some say I can talk for England).


There is nothing I love more than people plus capturing their authentic moments. I have been shooting images for the best part of my life, but I didn’t start to get more serious about photography until 2010 when I decided to start my own company and go freelance. I can still remember shooting my first wedding for a friend and getting the buzz to become a full-time wedding photographer.

A few things I love in no particular order:

My rescue dog Lilly, sushi, Gadgets, Lazy days in the hot sun, wildflowers (and lots of them), New York City (I’ve been there twice and still want to go back), Family, Traveling and exploring and creative people with good hearts.

My Bucket List of places to visit (We all have one)

Hawaii, Iceland, India (covering Goa to Mumbai), Australia, To see the leaning tower of Pisa, walk along the great wall of China and see the Terracotta Army, Hot air balloon ride over the Grand Canyon, a night in Las Vegas (what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas) and lastly to see the Phantom of the opera live.

What My Customers Say

Wow what can we say the photos are amazing. We had such an amazing time which flew by but looking back on these photos is like living through the day again! And Robert is amazing so friendly. We've heard so many good things from our guests saying how they never noticed him snapping away during the day. It was a pleasure having you there.

Thanks to Olympus for an excellent event and to Robert and his crew for all their help during the day. A great way to learn. - David Smith

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say big thank you for a very enjoyable course, I found it thoroughly interesting as a beginner when it comes to properly lighting scenes and subjects as well as how you manage the workflow with insights into the way you manage post processing. I must admit I had no idea what to expect originally. The day was very good at giving me lots of ideas and things to work on in the future as well being as I said fun and enjoyable in the way it was presented. Also to give me more confidence in portrait work as well which I have needed to gain. It was good to meet everyone else in the course and see how they also approached the situation. Thank you again for your time and effort. I will drop you a separate email directly to discuss some of the questions I had for you, I promise there will not be too many. - Fraser Catlin
