Hailing from Jordan-era Chicago, Robert Vaughns grew up suffocated by award-winning skyscrapers and bus smog. Indoctrinated with the idea of becoming a doctor at a young age. For the first 30 years of his life, he failed at pursuing other people's dreams.
Mr. Vaughns was terminated from his scientific role due to discrimination during the height of the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter movement following the death of George Floyd. This gave him the time to hone his film, photo, design, and poetry skills to form the design agency Rob Shoot Still, LLC in late 2020 with his friends.
