Outdoor Photographer

René Robert

I am an outdoor photographer with more than 20 years of experience living in Chamonix Mont-Blanc, France.

Throughout my career, I have been following explorers, mountain climbers, skiers and snowboarders. I have also worked for the press as well as on advertising and marketting material for well known brands.

This site is my online portfolio, presenting the work I have done for a wide variety of clients.
