Robb Hirsch

Photographer

Initially trained as a field biologist from UC Irvine, Robb Hirsch is now a full-time landscape photographer with an intimate relationship to the natural world. His passion for Yosemite started early with annual childhood visits to the park.

As a field biologist, he worked on a variety of projects for California State Parks, USGS, and several private firms. His love for traveling and exploration had led him through Africa, Central America, and the Western United States. Photography was originally a means to document his work and travels but soon became the focus.

His photography has since been featured in international competitions, calendars, magazines and gallery showings and he leads customized, small group photography workshops in Yosemite and surrounding Sierra Nevada.

Robb’s debut book, The Nature of Yosemite - A Visual Journey, was published in 2019 by the Yosemite Conservancy, and combines stunning imagery of the park with educational text about the natural history.
