1/2/18: For more than three decades, Rob Swanson was a news photographer covering the state of Vermont. He documented the people, places and moments that resonated in our state - including that iconic snap of Bernie Sanders celebrating his 1981 mayoral win. 

Rob is retired from professional photography now, but he hasn't slowed down much. Rob takes photos daily from around and above his property in South Hero, capturing the dramatic moments between colorful birds and wildlife that visit his feeders, and sharing epic sunsets and sunrises across social media. Eva spent a snowy afternoon shooting the "Birdman" in his natural habitat and looking back at some of his favorite photos from an impressive career.
