Recent advances made in IT technology has given much impetus to the development of multimedia devices. The digital camera is such a multimedia device. It has made much progress and become very popular, as most people now own a digital camera or cell phone with camera features. People often take photographs in everyday life. Professional photographers often take photographs of travel destinations, banquet halls or parties. In this paper, we propose an autonomous robot photographer capable of taking pictures and thus replacing photographers. This photographer robot can detect direction based on the human voice. It can control composition based on skin color detection to snap the picture.
