Robert Primes, ASC

After a dozen years  working as a San Francisco film maker, almost forty years as a Hollywood director of photography and another eight years teaching cinematography, I embraced photography and film making as personal expression unrelated to earning a living.  The freedom was exhilarating but challenging. The images on these pages reflect my efforts to find fulfillment and meaning by attempting to expand  my skills and vision.  These images were not created to please anyone -but of course, I hope they do.
