About Kaufman Photography
Photography has been a passion for as long as Rob Kaufman can remember. Like many photography professionals who started out in the “good old days” of film, his first camera was an old Pentax K-1000. There was something magical about being able to envision an image and then make it come to life with the proper combination of aperture, exposure and a photographic eye. Rob's interest in the visual arts followed him to Michigan State University, where he graduated in 1992 with a B.A. in advertising.Shortly after graduating, Rob traded the weary winters of Michigan for the sunny shores of Hilton Head Island. His photography skills were quickly recognized by area publications. It wasn’t long after that he was shooting for clients all over the Southeast, and even farther afield.Although he retired that Pentax K-1000 long ago and now shoots with the latest Nikon digital SLR equipment, he has never lost touch with the magic involved with creating enduring images and the importance of really enjoying what you do.
