Robbie Conder was born in Catterick, North Yorkshire, England. His father was an army officer and his mother an occupational therapist.
At the age of eighteen Robbie moved to North Wales where after work, spent his time exploring the crags and ridges of the Llanberis Pass.
By the time he was twenty-one he had moved to France and began seasonal work from jobbing in bars, to working as a photographer.
In 1999 after working 7 years for a well known sportswear company in France, a change of life style lead him to a year in Morocco with a laptop and digital camera. Here for 12 months, he toured the country and fine tuned his digital workflow from capture to post production.
Returning refreshed from his travels with new ideas he set about developing his own photography business, first "plasmatitude" (an event photography service) before realizing his true ambition "purelumiere" a photography service for weddings, portraits and corporate advertising.
Robbie, when he is not working, can be found on the beach checking out the waves with his favorite 9ft longboard.
Artists can be found on both sides of Robbie's family including:
The English-born Australian Painter, Charles Conder (1868- 1909), Claude Regnier Conder (1848- 1910) the esteemed victorian map maker, Louis François Roubiliac (1702-1762) the acclaimed 18th Century sculptor, Josiah Conder (1852- 1920), "father of modern Japanese architecture" and the French Photographer Francois Tuefferd (1912- 1996).
