Rob Tarr Photography



Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy these images.

It will be immediately obvious that my background in marine biology, and passion for the oceans and marine life in general, has been a central theme guiding my photography. But you will also see here my interest in others areas, in particular photojournalism. I love telling a story with my pictures.

Please browse at your leisure, and contact me if you are interested in any prints, or if you have any photographic project in mind that I could assist with.

Iceberg splash

Sometimes, one just has to rely on luck. While I was photographing this iceberg landscape, a piece of ice broke off somewhere underwater, and popped up to the surface just as I pressed the shutter! A magical moment!

Meeting the baby

Spending time with the troop on the mountain above Glencairn, this fleeting moment was gone in an instant.
