robin pendergrast Robin F. Pendergrast, at age nine, picked up a Kodak Brownie camera while on the set of a Northern Illinois Gas Company (now Nicor) shoot, where his father served as director of publicity. That moment piqued young Robin’s interest and a life-long love affair with picture-makin ensued.

Now, with more than 35 years of experience as a professional photographer/videographer, Robin has carved a niche among the Midwest’s artists.  Robin strives to deliver evocative images to realize his artistic vision: to provide intriguing and creative depictions of the subjects he photographs. He is driven by a conscientious appreciation for the natural beauties of this earth – the people and creatures that inhabit it to the man-made structures and natural wonders that occupy its surface.

Robin’s photographic art showcases uninhibited beauty from a wide range of subjects and spaces, encompassing commercial, aerial, architectural, portrait, theatrical, wedding, human interest and travel photography. 

Robin’s photographs have been published in myriad publications around the world, including Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Times, The New York Times, Associated Press, Time, Better Homes & Gardens, Flower & Garden, Garden Gate and Gardening How-To. His images have been featured in A Journey to Nine Islands: Chicago Botanic Garden as well as in textbooks, on cable TV, and in hundreds of trade and consumer magazines.

Robin is also a primary contributing photographer/editor for the McHenry County Living magazine.
