Robert Primes, ASC

After twelve years working as a film maker in San Francisco, almost forty years as a Hollywood director of photography and eight years teaching cinematography at AFI, I embraced photography and film making as simply personal expression, not as a way to earn a living. The freedom was both exhilarating and challenging.  The images on these pages reflect my effort to keep active and creative by expanding my vision and skills. These images were not specifically created to  please anyone - but of course I hope they please you.
