Largely self-taught, Rob Michaelson’s photographic interests are centered around subjects that can get him outdoors. He is a passionate bird photographer and wildlife photographer as well as an underwater photographer. He enjoys being one of the volunteer photographers for Musical Bridges, finding it exciting, challenging, and rewarding.
“Photographing for Musical Bridges is extremely challenging. Concerts are indoors, usually with very difficult lighting situations. You can’t use a flash; you must not be intrusive during the concerts, and you need to get good useable photos.”
“The rewards are great. I’ve been able to photograph fantastic musicians like Hiromi, Vijay Iyer, Janoska, and the Gurwitz International Piano Competition. What an honor and privilege it was to capture images for The Quilt.”
Rob is the husband of Anya Grokhovski, Founder and Artistic Director of Musical Bridges Around the World. Rob is very proud of having served over 30 years reserve and active duty in the United States Air Force, retiring from active duty in 2011 as a Colonel.
