Michael A. Robinson, new Advisory Panel

Premium

Michael A. Robinson photographed Kevin McKernan and Marc Vidal at Agencourt in his home town of Beverly, Mass., for this month’s cover. The son of a photojournalist mother, he began taking pictures at an early age. A graduate of the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, Michael’s work focuses on people images for corporate and editorial clients. He says his “photographer’s eye” is developed through his travel, skiing, and biking adventures.

Genome Technology thanks the members of its new advisory panel, who have agreed to be a sounding board for the magazine.
