Robin Layton is one of the lucky ones. She knew at a very young age what her purpose was. A celebrated Nikon Ambassador since 2013, Robin has an eye for award-winning visual storytelling. 

By age 24, she was honored by LIFE magazine as one of the eight most talented photographers in America. In 1991, her image of a young departing soldier, embracing his daughter on the USS John F. Kennedy, was used globally for ads including AT&T and the USO and was on the cover of LIFE Magazine’s The Year in Pictures issue. Her photo story on runaway teens in downtown Seattle was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. Sports enthusiasts will remember her iconic photograph of Ken Griffey Jr. from the 1995 American League playoffs (“The Smile at the Bottom of the Pile”).

Robin is clearly on a path of purpose! She's about to launch her latest project, a labor of love titled, "the lake," a stunning culmination of a 10-year personal mission, presented on a grand scale with state-of-the-art craft and attention to every detail. It perfectly and artistically captures the energy of the water, the people, and the nature surrounding Lake Washington.

Highlights from the show:

  • The early years; stepping into purpose
  • What it means to be a celebrated Nikon Ambassador
  • It's NEVER work...the true definition of passion
  • Honoring our parents
  • "the lake"... only 2000 printed copies... there will never be a reprint... why this labor of love is getting the "RED CARPET" treatment
  • Acceptance as an artist and a human being... "I'm so out, I need to go back in" (we love you, Robin!)
  • The key to life... #gratitude
  • Advice to the younger generations... "get quiet; do what makes your heart happy and you'll never work a day in your life"
