As the saying goes” It takes a village to raise a child”, which ultimately defines my childhood. I grew up in a very small housing community know as Muddy Cluster, located on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. The nearest school was an hour away, which meant early bus rides and late evenings. Lame Deer was the closest town which consisted of a gas station, bank and grocery store. I am the youngest of my mother’s seven children and the youngest daughter of my father’s seven children. Welcome, my name is Robyn Kay Iron and I am a descendent of the Crow and Northern Cheyenne tribes.
Currently I am a Design Student, attending Salish Kootenai College studying Digital Design Technology. My decision to obtain a degree started as a desire to pursue my journey in photography. After accomplishing a degree in Digital Arts I will continue to the University of Montana, photojournalism undergraduate program. My ultimate goal is to photograph stories of indigenous people and address our most unspoken events. A picture tells a story and I want to be there to capture it.
Although, my journey as a designer has just begun I will focus my skill towards photographing live content. I have been a freelance photographer for over four years and have gained greater knowledge in the aspects of design. My Intention is to offer services on many platforms of design, accumulating my artistry in web design, print design and branding.
