830 SE Rose St.

My little studio at 830 SE Rose St. in Roseburg is coming together. My studio lights should arrive this week. The sign is not really up on the building yet, but this is what it will look like. It's a great space.

Robin Loznak Photography, LLC

I gave my three weeks notice at The News-Review on Monday. My last day in Feb. 13th.

I've been a newspaper photojournalist for 19 years, so this is a huge step.

Robin Loznak Photography, LLC will now get my full attention. I've already starting booking weddings. I'm so excited!

Wylie and the Elephant

I shot a heart warming story at Wildlife Safari last week for The News-Review. Wylie is a 10-year-old boy with autism who is being allowed to spend time with the elephants. The story was picked up by the Associated Press and it ran on the Oregonian's website this morning.

Photo Booth Fun

I had a great time at the Macy's Bridal Fair at Seven Feathers Casino on Sunday. I had about 100 people stop at my display. Everyone seemed really excited about my photo booth. Some of them even took a test drive.

I'm starting book weddings for the spring and summer. Check my website for rates.

Macy's Bridal Fair

I'll have a booth set up at the Macy's Bridal Fair at the Seven Feathers Casino in Canyonville on Sunday, Jan. 24th. I'll have my portable photo booth up and running and be offering free photo strips.
I'm also having a drawing for a free portrait/engagement session. It should be a lot of fun. After the fair I'm taking my family to the seafood buffet.

Happy Cat?

A large house cat yawns while lounging on furniture at a thrift store operated by New Beginnings Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Roseburg, Ore., on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2010 . The resale store lets numerous cats roam free in the building and interact with customers and staff members.

I shot this for the News-Review the other day. To me this cat looks happy, but a few people have said he look mean and angry. I transmitted it on the Associated Press photo wire yesterday.

The Wall Steet Journal used it on their website.The San Francisco Chronicle also used the cat photo.

Published in National Geographic Book

I have a half-page photo published in a new National Geographic Society book called Celebrate Halloween with Pumpkins, Costumes, and Candy. I took the photo a few years ago at a haunted house in Montana. It's really fun to see my work in a National Geographic publication. My photos are often published in magazines, books, and websites around the world. I'm represented by a photo agency and sometimes I'm surprised by who publishes my work.

Shadow Play

Cindy Sanders, shadow at left, watches as Avry Hanson, 9, takes her horse over a jump at Sanders' Wishing Well Farm in Ten Mile, Ore., last week.

The play of shadows on the wall of the stable during this photo shoot at Wishing Well Farm last week make this photo work. I used a single Nikon SB-800 flash fired with a Pocket Wizard remote.

I can shoot action portraits on location anyplace at almost anytime. Check my website to see more samples of my work...
I offer a full line of prints, photo products, and online galleries which can be posted on Facebook or emailed to friends and family.

Water Dog

Any chance he gets our lab William is in the water. This time of year the puddles are growing into ponds and the ponds into lakes. At least someone in the family loves the rainy wet winter.

Face the Nation

Bob Schieffer had a commentary on Face the Nation about dogs this morning. On the CBS website they used one of my photos to illustrate the story. It's the picture of the dog not the one of Bob. Take a look at my website to see more of my photos.

Goose Grab and Release

I shot this while on an assignment for The News-Review a few days ago. I was surprised when Mr. Smith reached in and grabbed the goose by the neck. I think the goose was even more surprised. It seemed to end well with the bird walking away into a nearby field. Read the story here.

Tracey Smith, left, pulls a Canada goose from a pet carrier while his wife, Ellen, granddaughter Tracey Smith, 15, and neighbor Ed LaPlante help out near their home in Winston on Wednesday. The goose appeared reluctant to be set free after recovering from injuries suffered last month.

Four Minute Portrait

It's been crazy busy at my job at The News-Review for the last couple of weeks. I've been shooting six or seven assignments a day. With driving time and computer time I don't get much shooting time. I've developed what I like to call the "four minute portrait".
I show up on location, chat with the subject for a minute or two, shoot a portrait, and say goodbye. It's not the best form of photojournalism, but with my wacky schedule I do what needs to get done.
