Testimonials

"The Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation is always looking to share our special moments with donors and the wider community. When we need a great photo or image that captures the emotion, the experience or the story best, we rely on Rob Hislop and his talents as a photographer to ensure we get the right shot. Rob has to work with young kids, both at the hospital and in the community, in all kinds of weather, and definitely all hours of the week. He doesn’t just take great photos – he captures life in action."

“Everyone needs an ace in the hand...I've been fortunate to work with Rob for capturing a number of international athletic competitions (and Olympic and National track and field trials) over the years. He has a true passion for photography and has a gift that ranges from capturing amazing live action shots to photos that have deep emotional context. He is an outstanding photographer that overdelivers his services.”

"The Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts hosted a photography exhibit for Rob Hislop in 2019. The Nina works with a great number of artists and we host approximately 20 shows annually. Rob was one of our most popular exhibits of all time. The quality and content of the photos were spectacular. It drew a great deal of interest from media and the general public. Rob was such a pleasure to work with and his professionalism was second to none. We look forward to following his artistic career and hope to host another exhibit with him in the near future."

"I have been covering FIVB beach volleyball events around the world since the 1990's.  I have worked a number of them with photographers that have been called in at the last moment to cover our tournaments. Until you, I never had much success working with them, as they struggled with our process and capturing the images needed.  You are the best first timer (beach volleyball) I have ever worked with and for me rank among the top 10 photographers I have worked with and I have done nearly 100 international tournaments over the years."

"Rob generously offers his time to WINGS, and sets up photo shoots of the families living in shelter, who have all left situations of family violence. Rob is patient, kind, and professional when working with our families – many have never had family photos done before and are unsure of what to expect. He is wonderful with the women and children as he makes everyone comfortable and is able to bring out their smiles when they’re going through so much. When the families see Rob’s finished photos they are absolutely amazed at the quality and dedication he put into editing the photos and adding in special effects that truly fit with the personalities of each member of the family. We are incredibly grateful to have Rob as a friend of WINGS and the talents that he brings."

"Hopethiopia, an international NGO working in Ethiopia and Rwanda, has been very fortunate to have had Rob Hislop join us on volunteer mission trips to both countries. The way that he is able to record the life and culture is spectacular. Rob is able to capture the essence of the moment and this makes such a difference when trying to convey the many unique situations that we encounter. Hopethiopia is extremely grateful for his passion, expertise, and the very respectful way that he interacts with our beneficiaries and projects. Seeing is believing and Rob is a master at allowing the world to see."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Rob so many times, I feel he’s my personal photographer! He is professional, efficient and makes his clients feel at ease – which helps him capture the best images. He also works extremely hard to make sure the final product is the perfect fit for what we’re using them for.

“Sport Central found a great resource in Edmonton photographer, Rob Hislop. When we had few quality shots of the operations in our Equipment and Bicycle warehouses, Rob came and solved that problem in days. A few months later when lamenting we needed photos of various different children wearing sports equipment, Rob developed a plan, found the models and got the job done with wonderful images we could only dream of. Thank you Rob for getting important promotional projects we needed done using your organizational skills, rapport with volunteers and kids, and skill with a camera.”

"Rob Hislop was the official photographer for the Azorcan 2020 World Juniors tour to the Czech Republic.  Rob took photos at our kick off event in Edmonton then throughout the 3 week tour in Germany, Austria, Poland and the Czech Republic.  The photos were very much appreciated by all the tour participants for their variety and quality.  Our clients will be able to look back at the many fond memories from the tour for years to come because of these great photos.  We were very happy with the service provided by Rob Hislop Photography and would recommend his services."

"Rob’s talent has produced some very good photos for magazine features I’ve done. While there is give and take in our working relationship, it’s not uncommon for Rob to find more in the surroundings and subject matter. As is often the case, those photos come off looking really, really good. Together we have been published in the UK publications - Mercedes Enthusiast, Performance BMW and 911 & Porsche World."

"Rob Hislop’s photographs are not only about what you see - but what you feel.  With each portrait its as if Rob is begging the question “What makes this person unique and extraordinary?” Beyond his keen eye and technical acumen - he understands how to connect with his subjects and bring the best out in people."

"Many people take pictures but Rob Hislop captures slices of life.  More than any photographer I know or have enjoyed, Rob is at home in a wedding chapel, a corporate office, the muck of a rodeo, the thrill of the race track or capturing diamonds at baseball games.  Many people take pictures - Rob Hislop is an artist with a camera."
