Robin Macmillan was born in Orillia, Ontario and studied fine art at the Ontario College of Art and Design for four years. This led to a career in production for commercials but after receiving a life changing diagnosis of breast cancer, six days after her daughter's first birthday, she knew she had to make a change. "Life is short, use your time wisely by doing things that inspire and motivate you to be the best person you can be."
Robin's portrait painting abilities allowed for an easy transition into the same genre with photography as the medium.
Now eight years past treatment, Robin's passion for life, family, friends and photography has become her main focus.
In a short period of time, Robin's works have been seen internationally on the Vogue Italia web site, LensCulture, Dodho Magazine, Chromatic Awards Book, Fluster Magazine, Below Magazine, the International Photography Awards, Yahoo, music CD's and many book covers. Her prints have been shown in New York City as part of the digital show "The Story of the Creative" and at a solo exhibition in Toronto, Ontario. Recently, Robin has been featured on the well known show "the Weekly Flickr" on the Flickr blog and the popular photographer's haven Phlearn in Chicago as well as being a regular contributor to PhotoNews Canada.
Robin works and resides just North of Toronto, Canada.
