Robert Floyd was born and raised in Fall River and was schooled in Boston, Long Island and NYC. He spent a few “lifetimes in Manhattan.”
Robert Floyd has been capturing images of the social, entertainment, corporate and sports worlds for the past 35 years. Through the seasons, he has been commissioned to capture many famous faces, from George Bush to Jimmy Carter, from Yogi Berra to Maya Angelou, from Warren Bufffet to Michael Dell, from Michael Jackson to the Alvin Alley Ballet, from homeless shelters to buildings by I. M. Pei, from Trump to MacEnroe, from Ron Brown to Judy Collins and hundreds and hundreds more… Robert successfully completed over 2,250 assignments alone in the ten years of the 1990s.

(Speaking of authors and books…see below)
In addition, Robert’s scenic and wildlife images have been installed from private collections to boardrooms and universities.
Floyd has the ability to communicate and fit in and a willingness to go all out for as long as necessary. “It’s about coming back with great images in what are not always the easiest circumstances.” Creating beautiful photographs in a whirlwind of activity under pressure, time after time, on demand is his expertise. It’s the excitement and the anticipation of the unknown that keep Floyd constantly on his toes and aware of his surroundings.
“It’s all part of the adventure… all in the journey…we never really arrive at a destination.” Robert Floyd

It was my honor to be the official commentator for Muhammad Ali, Friday morning, on New England Public Radio at their request, to start Ali’s final farewell. I share with you the link to read, listen, or both. Thank you…
“[Muhammad Ali] taught me that failure is not an option.” As the world mourns the death of an athletic hero, photojournalist Robert Floyd remembers the ways in which Ali inspired his life and his work.
From Robert Floyd:
I want to highlight Author Jeanne Braham more than myself. This is her 8th book…and she has become a very dear close friend:
Portraits of Assistance Dogs and Their People
by Jeanne Braham
The profiles in Another Language celebrate the healing bonds between service dogs and their people. Through these oral histories, and backed by the power of photographs, sixteen people who have worked with the NEADS/Dogs For Deaf and Disabled Americans program in north-central Massachusetts tell their own stories in their own words. You’ll meet an Iraq war veteran, people who use wheelchairs or who have balance problems due to debilitating disease, trainers who raise service puppies and others who work with NEADS’ human clients, and more. Writer/interviewer Jeanne Braham, along with photographer Robert Floyd, bring the stories to life in a way that’s respectful, compassionate, and compelling.
