Robb Kendrick (born 1963 in Spur, Texas) is an American photographer. He has photographed 16 feature stories for National Geographic magazine,[1] and has published three photo books. In addition to his color documentary work, he makes images on tintype, a historical photo process that was popular in the mid-19th century. His portraits of modern-day cowboys on tintype have been compared to Edward Curtis' portraits of Native Americans.[2] Robb Kendrick refrains from using social media focusing instead on his family.[3]
