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 and baby girl, he plays the saxophone (very well). We were both lucky to be taught this early on.
Hi my name is Andy. I have always loved telling stories with my pictures. I started off working 16 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.
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, seeing life in places and moments with people that will define who they are, who they are going to be.
Today I photograph weddings and I live in Devon. I 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 know what I do is not for everyone but its amazing if we find each other for a very short but important time and I am allowed to tell the story creatively and the way I see it.
