"Rock photographers are a breed all their own. Mara Robinson is a part of that pedigree. She is a Rock Photographer.

Possessing the prophetic sense of placement, the ability to command mutable lighting and the engineer’s superior angle, Mara captures an entire album’s worth of sound, pain, life and sweat in an instant. She sees those that are only heard. She has the tools, the respect, she commands the medium and the moment.

Musicians love Mara because she can do what genetics failed to do: make us look good."

— Eric

There's no need to screw around. You don't need to contact anyone else for your photographic needs. You already found her.
Mara has been excellent at both capturing the energy of my band's live shows and doing more staged photography for press. Always prepared and had fresh ideas, which in rock and roll these days can be hard to come by!
It's rare that a photographer can add to a rocker's blood, sweat and tears, but Mara can do it.
