Feet First: Creative Travel Photos by British Couple

Jan 11, 2012 8 comments

British photographer Tom Robinson got the idea for his Feet First series in 2005 while sitting on Brighton beach in the UK with his girlfriend Verity. Ever since then, the globe-trotting couple has continued to photograph their feet as they traveled the world.

They have since travelled through 31 countries taking the shots in places like Vietnam, Peru, Scotland and Australia. The couple now has a collection of more than 90 “feet photos” taken in front of exotic locations and natural wonders.

Then the photos took a happy and unexpected twist when a third pair of feet, that of their daughter Matilda, joined them in 2011.

“It really excites me to think of all the future adventures we're going to have together,” said Tom to the Daily Mail. “In 30 years time it'll be great to look through the series - remember all the places we went together, see how fashions have come and gone and how those little feet got bigger and bigger.”















  1. What I wanna know is... 3rd photo down, how did she get away with just flip flops, when he's all kitted out in jeans and boots for rugged terrain? :-) Me and my friend Em are always taking pix of our feet on holiday. The first time we did this, it was on a boat in the middle of the ocean in Majorca. Our feet were in the centre of a rustic piece of rope, coiled around our feet... And about 7 cans of beer tucked in around them! I prefer that photo to any of these up there!!!

  3. Modern traveling is not traveling at all; it is merely being sent to a place, and very little different from becoming a parcel.

  4. Thank goodness they don't have ugly big feet with "finger toes"!!! Hahaha!!!

  5. Yeah, my boyfriend did that with my butt in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Japan, and all over Europe and the U.S. and Canada. And I did it with his grimaces. Like Fishy-face on Maui. Problem is, when the family wants pictures!!!

  6. Hey, you in Abidjan above, criticizing other people's idea of travel? There are no rules. That's why it's called vacation! And the only reason YOU get to go anywhere anyway, is because my paternal grandfather built your airport! So there! :)

  7. Not so creative ... Just go on Facebook and Instagram and that's all you see.
