Andrew's interest in photography began in 1997 whilst working as an underwater photographer and scuba instructor for the world famous, 'Stuart Cove' dive centre in the Bahamas. Stuart Cove is used as a location for many Hollywood and Wildlife productions. Andrew has worked as a safety officer on severeal productions in the Bahamas as an underwater photographer and videographer. In 2001, he moved back to London and whilst training at the Kent Institute of Art & Design, worked at well known studios such as METRO and Parkroyal, where he assisted some of London's premier fashion photographers both in the studio and abroad.
This fast paced and footloose lifestyle had to end though and after meeting his now wife, he decided to put some routes down in London. Firstly as the Sales & Marketing director for a studio in the city, and after 3 years he went on to become the Business Development Manager for a small, international, design agency and produced and directed all creative shoots for clients.
In 2010 after getting married the previous year to his wife Gemma, they moved up to Rutland in the UK where he worked full time as a photographer and writer specialising in field sports and animal publications, as well as undertaking some commercial product work for Rekordelig Cider.
Andrew lived overseas for most of his formative years. His schooling was undertaken in rural schools in the UK, where he was actively involved with farming, riding and shooting. So quite naturally he enjoyed and made the most of his time in Rural Rutland. Andrew and Gemma moved to Sydney in March of 2013 and he is now enjoying being back in the Pacific. He is diving as often as possible and taking advantage of all the opportunities that Australia and the region can offer, producing some spectacular underwater photography and animal imagery.
The new addition to the family of a son in 2015, has prompted Andrew to dust off an old project of working with the whole family from pets to babies, infants, children and mums to be underwater. Contact him on +61 (0) 401 644 922
