Features & Details
Robin Venturelli A.K.A. Blue Haired Blond Robin started her career as an independent Los Angeles, California studio portrait photographer in the 1980’s, after having received her Bachelor of Arts from U.C.L.A. She studied under Julia Dean in her Venice, Beach studio. A day spent at Roger James’ studio in Los Feliz was inspirational to her and impacted her noir lighting style. As digital photography entered the mainstream, Robin refocused her career on Travel Journalism, with a career working as Director for Luxury Travel Magazine, based in Australia. Her responsibilities included worldwide photographic journalism and editorial content for feature articles in the magazine. Pivoting once again when the 2020 pandemic shut down travel, Robin found herself captivated by capturing her neighborhood streets. Her current book focuses on the last mile of Route 66 in Santa Monica, CA.
