Dobrowner grew up in Long Island, New York. He fooled around with an old Argus rangefinder given to him by his father. Soon after Dobrowner became addicted to the image of Minor White and Ansel Adams. Dobrowner left home at age twenty-one and traveled to the American Southwest. He eventually settled down in California with a wife, three children and a design studio, which did not leave much time for photography. Dobrowner picked-up photography again in 2005 at the urging of his family and friends.
