Robbins, a celebrated DP in popular television and film, and the first female cinematographer to shoot a Shondaland series, currently is lead DP on Grey's Anatomy season 17. She is a 14-year industry veteran, having worked on Grey's Anatomy season 16, and critically acclaimed episodes of the series, such as season 15's "Silent All These Years." In addition, she has worked on feature films "The Wedding Invitation" and "BabySplitters," which won Best Romantic Comedy at the 2016 Manhattan Film Festival and Best Comedy at Burbank International Festival, and Best Narrative at Santa Barbara International Film Festival, respectively. Robbins also received the prestigious 2018 Emerging Cinematographer Award from the Cinematographer's Guild for the short Internet Gangsters and has shot for projects that include "Creed II," "Tag," "The Post," "WAT" and "Scorpion."
"I am proud to partner with LUMIX to share my personal creative journey and highlight how standout LUMIX cameras, such as the S1H, have supported my artistic vision and enabled me to bring creative concepts to life," said Robbins. "The picture quality and low light performance of the S1H are second-to-none, and I and really appreciate the ability to shoot on long days without worrying about the camera overheating."
LUMIX Ambassador Skye is known for writing, directing and being the DP on her feature film "River," which is debuting worldwide this summer. She has won more than 18 awards for her short film of "River," filmed in May 2020, available on DUST, Hollyshorts Bitpix, and more. A champion of women in filmmaking, Skye leads a digital community called #shefilmtribe on Instagram, a safe place for women in the industry to encourage and bond with one another, share experiences and have a dialogue about what it means to be a woman in film. Skye's highly anticipated Whiskey Docuseries adventure, "Binders Stash," will debut in Fall 2021.
"I love the dynamic range of these cameras," said Skye. "They are also user-friendly for first time filmmakers, and that's one of the points I make when a young filmmaker asks me about purchasing their own camera. I tell them they can grow with a LUMIX. I am excited to bring that element of mentorship to this partnership."
