His work has been used commercially in advertising campaigns in Africa and Europe, including by such clients as Toyota Europe.

Stephen Robinson's interest in nature and wildlife grew when he moved to Zambia from his native England. He went to Africa initially as a construction professional, but spent extended periods in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley as a walking safari guide. His keen interest in nature & environmental photography developed from this. His general wildlife photography of African mammals soon extended to birds, insects, flora, ecology, and action photography of wildlife.

During his many years of travelling to remote locations in largely unknown Zambia, he found himself repeatedly making the same mental note: “must come back and do the landscapes…”. Many years later, this resulted in his current long term project Spirit of the Land. The original theme of this project was the panoramic photography of remote African landscapes and the photography of the people of those areas. This work is used to promote greater awareness of the importance of the environment to the millions of people who live so directly off those natural resources. This has included several major solo exhibitions of the work and involvement in many collaborative exhibitions. The Spirit of the Land project work continues and now extends to subjects beyond remote Africa, including urban landscape work.  His Fine Art Prints of the work are sold internationally.  The work, fine art prints, exhibitions and more details can be seen at www.spirit-of-the-land.com (please click on the link below).
