Robert Kaplinger, or KAP as his friends like to call him, is a professional photographer and founder of Some White Guy Photography & Media. KAP is veteran of the United States Marine Corps and the United States Army. A proud father of two boys, one an aspiring English major at the University of Central Florida and the other an imminent High School graduate.
Growing up, KAP was inspired by the various artist in his family: A mother who was a painter, an uncle who was a Rock N Roller, and his Grandfather Rudy, who among many things, was a photographer. Grandpa Rudy's 1941 Contax 35mm was passed down and served as KAP’s first camera, which he still has to this day.
Currently, KAP shoots Cannon, his main workhorse, the 5D Mark III. Primarily shoots in black and white, not only for the aesthetics, but for the definitive influence by his grandfather’s work.
After shooting a Stephen Marley show a few years back, Drummer, Squidly Cole (son of SKA legend Stranger Jah Cole) had one of his associates selling his solo album in front of the venue. Spotting KAP as a photographer from the show, the gentleman called over to Squidly, “Some white guy took your photo, you should see them!” Once Squidly introduced himself, KAP introduced himself as “Some White Guy” sharing a good laugh with the Reggae star.
