Rob Woodcox is a surreal portrait and fine artist born in Houston, raised in Detroit, and currently residing in Portland Oregon. He exercises his talent for photography with a passion that is unquenchable and contagious. As he creates each piece of his artwork, Rob strives to capture fragments of a vivid life sewn by the threads of reality, memory and dream. Each concept is a declaration of his experience and seeks to tell a meaningful story to each individual that views it.
His interest in photography began in the fall of 2009 and he started pursuing a full time career in the fall of 2013. He brings his natural sense of adventure, innovation, and youthful spirit into every interaction, and incorporates these facets into every image. Rob thrives on sharing his imagination and dreams with others; in the fall of 2013 he had the opportunity to have an image turned into a film as a part of Project Imaginat10n with Ron Howard and Canon.
Rob is also passionate about raising awareness for those in need and in 2013 used his photography to raise funds for foster kids to attend camp and to further knowledge of the need in the foster care system. His collaboration with 4 others artists, Stories Worth Telling, raised 12K for foster kids in need.
Throughout 2014 he had the privilege to excel teaching other artists through interactive portfolio and technique building workshops. He has taught in over 10 cities around the USA and Canada. In November of 2014 Rob's Stories Worth Telling series was featured on Yahoo, ABC and various other large media sites, re-energizing the project and sparking a new initiative to raise funds for foster children.
In 2015 Rob showed his photographs in the historic Chinese Theatre in Hollywood to continue supporting foster children. He also brought his workshops to 3 new continents, South America, Asia and Australia, teaching in over 10 new countries.
When he is not creating photographs, Rob mentors artists, travels, explores the wilderness, cooks, and seeks whatever adventures come his way.
