My dad told me once, do a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life. He was a photographer on newspapers and my mum was a journalist. My brother lives in Denmark with his wife , little girl and baby boy. He plays the saxophone(very well). We were both lucky to be taught this early on.
I am Andy. I am always going to be the photographer you get when you book us. “Us “ is a little collective of helpers and photographers, printers , creatives that keep these wheels turning and moving. I have always loved telling stories with my pictures. I started off working almost 20 years ago in press work – I was a photo journalist – I was 18. I was lucky to travel all over the world and the UK working on stories and meeting people that I still remember and think about to this day. Since then I have worked making ski films, for charities in disaster and humanitarian conflicts, and now for the last 8 years i have been photographing and filming weddings.
I have always been driven by the story of people and the capture of moments that go beyond the obvious. My camera has always been my passport to me being involved in peoples lives I don’t know and places I have never been. I love journeys, to live creatively, bear witness to life in places and moments with people that will ultimately define who they are, who they are going to be on the most important of days.
Today I photograph weddings and I live in Devon with my wonderful wife who I travel and work with every day. We still get to travel loads and still tell stories of people I don’t know and places I have never been before which I am very thankful for. It is an amazing opportunity to spend time , sometimes one day, sometimes more, with people on their most important of all days. To be able to create something really different for them, something they really love and treasure.
I would love you to get in contact to chat and hear your ideas and make something amazing for you x
ENGAGEMENT WITH EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY WEDDING, SHARING IDEAS, BEING AMBITIOUS, STARTING A CONVERSATION, WORKING HARD, ALWAYS TRYING FOR SOMETHING UNPREDICTABLE AND AMAZING. I HAVE SUCH A RESPONSIBILITY THAT I TAKE SO VERY SERIOUSLY. THANKS FOR LOOKING AT my CORNER OF THE INTERNET.
MAINLY I LOVE WORKING IN DEVON AND CORNWALL, BUT HAVE VISITED 14 COUNTRIES SHOOTING WEDDINGS ALL OVER THE WORLD FOR SOME AMAZING PEOPLE. RISK IS PART OF CREATIVITY AND TO PUSH THIS IDEA IS REALLY THE CHALLENGE OF GOING PAST THE OBVIOUS INTO A SET OF IMAGES THAT IS COMPLETELY UNIQUE TO US. A COMBINATION OF THE ENVIRONMENT AND SOMETHING GENUINE INTERLACING BETWEEN EVERYTHING I SHOOT.
IN WHATEVER PROJECT I AM DOING, I ALWAYS TRY TO CREATIVELY TELL STORIES, TO WALK INTO EVERY WEDDING WITH EYES OPEN. SEEING THE MOMENTS OF THE DAY THAT MAY LAST A SPLIT SECOND IN FRONT OF ME AND CAPTURE THEM. I'M ALWAYS TRYING TO PUSH THE IDEAS OF HOW TO ACHIEVE THESE IMAGES.
I'M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR AN ABSTRACT ART INSPIRED BASED SET OF WEDDING PICTURES THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AROUND AN APPROACH TO DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY THAT REFLECTS A MORE ARTISTIC STORYTELLING THAN JUST RECORDING EVENTS. WITH A BACKGROUND IN PHOTOJOURNALISM, HUMANITARIAN WORK, SKI FILMS AND FASHION I'VE ALWAYS WORKED WITH IMAGES, IT'S THE ONLY THING I KNOW
IN EVERY WEDDING I DO, MY GOAL IS TO TELL A WEDDING STORY THROUGH A COLLECTION OF IMAGES OR FILM THAT BY THEMSELVES OR TOGETHER CREATE SOMETHING THAT ME, YOU, YOUR FAMILIES & FRIENDS MAKE TOGETHER - A CREATIVE ADVENTURE FOR US ALL.
