Photographer's Statement

Photo Credit: Gosia Rybka

I feel fortunate to have photography as a purely artistic outlet in my life. It balances out my day job in tech :-). For over a decade, I’ve truly enjoyed collaborating with creatives of all backgrounds, making vivid and evocative images come to life. I'm normally based on the west coast in California, but I travel all over the world to shoot, including many places on the US East Coast; Ireland, Switzerland, Australia, France, and the UK.

"Andrew is a very lively, creatively spirited, and technically savvy art photographer. My experience working with him on a six day tour out in the epic landscapes of Utah was nothing short of positive, for he generated lots of creatively compelling ideas, provided ample feedback and direction, and was open to collaboration. Furthermore, I felt very safe and valued throughout our creative process as he gave me lots of space to be present with my emotional needs and assert my boundaries whenever I saw fit. He made every effort to make me feel valued as a collaborator and I cannot thank him enough for the enrichening experience of working together!"

"Andrew is a wonderful character who always makes me feel comfortable and safe in front of the camera! Every time I get to shoot with him is a pleasure. I’ve been his makeup artist and model on a multitude of shoots and each one is something fun and new!"

"I've shot with Andrew quite a few times on either side of the lens. As a beginner model, I appreciate the way he directs the model on poses, often demonstrating them on himself first. He is helpful, encouraging and professional. He communicates with care and respect which creates a safe environment and helps the model feel at ease."

"I've had the pleasure of modeling for Andrew on multiple shoots including indoors and outdoor - fashion, boudoir, yoga, swimsuit, and implied nude. He is extremely respectful and professional and always makes sure I'm completely comfortable. He gives helpful coaching but encourages the model to be creative and expressive. Anyone working with him can expect a safe, positive space."
