I’m proud to announce our 14th finalist Russ Robinson, a Tampa, Florida-based photographer who specializes in what I like to call relationship portraiture. His beauty work is very clean and simple. He doesn’t rely on tricks or makeup or fancy sets. He focuses on the relationship. While all his work is good, his beauty work is the stuff that really caught my eye, again because of its simplicity.

Take a look at Russ’ work here and congratulations to Russ. We’re going to announce the next finalist in two weeks.
