Hi my name is Robert Campbell, I was born in a small town in Oklahoma you have never heard of, and quickly escaped by joining the Army. While in the Army I met a girl with more tattoos than me so I married her. Somewhere along the way I picked up a camera and also earned a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design from Full Sail University.

I have been with Zenfolio going on two years now and have helped thousands of photographers learn how to set up and use their Zenfolio website to run their photography business. Through this experience I have gained a solid understanding of best practices which I hope to pass on here.
