Robin Thomson                      bio                    

New York City based Producer, DOP and Editor.

I am currently employed by fashion and lifestyle publication Highsnobiety as Head of Production, having been transferred from their Berlin HQ earlier this year to help manage to the NYC video department and develop new long-form video projects. I have been heavily involved in getting Highsnobiety’s first-ever documentary series off the ground and have played a key role in the company’s expansion into video storytelling.

I have served in the role of Producer, DOP, Director to Editor over almost 10 years of shooting video projects, be it branded content, documentary, music video or full-length feature film. This speaks to my well rounded experience in many areas of production, and my comfort in stepping into the different roles required of each assignment.

I have a deep knowledge of Canon C Series, Sony cameras, drone operating and audio hardware.

Travelling is an integral and much loved perc of my job - I’ve travelled extensively in Europe, US and further afield. Whether shooting for Mercedes on frozen lakes in the Arctic circle, in Moscow’s black markets, in the desert in United Arab Emirates or on active volcanoes in Iceland, I am very grateful for that a job that offers so much adventure.

Previously in Berlin I worked as a freelance video producer/director, working on music related films for the likes of Decca classics, Canadian electro-punk pioneer Peaches to Oscar nominated composer Dustin O’Halloran.
