Dorset Photographic has been established by Robert Belbin in response to demand for specialist photographic services, particularly from artists and photographers in West Dorset.

Robert began his photographic career by hand printing black & white photographs at  Colourcare International in Downton before travelling the world as a cruise photographer on some of the world’s most prestigious ships, including the QE2. His travel photographs have been published in over 200 books and magazines worldwide.

After a spell at college studying Photoshop and website design, Robert then set up his own successful wedding photography business which kept him busy for several years. He then took on the role of production manager at Procanvas, an acclaimed canvas printing company in Bridport where he introduced fine art printing, artwork photography and digital scanning & retouching to the services offered to clients. The company morphed into Photo To Print and has now sadly closed. Robert has now established Dorset Photographic to help meet the demand for the type of photographic services required by artists and photographers in Dorset.

In his spare time Robert enjoys a spot of wildlife photography. Many of his images are on sale with Alamy and some of them can be viewed at
