Born and raised in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Andrew moved to London in 2001 after receiving a BA Honours Degree in Photography at Cheltenham. He developed his skills working alongside many great photographers in fashion, beauty, music and advertising. But it was while assisting legendary music photographer, Gered Mankowitz that he began to forge a reputation in the world of photography.
Andrew started shooting for the NME back in 2003 after building his portfolio and skills with lo-fi music magazines Careless Talk Costs Lives, Loose Lips Sink Ships and Plan B. This is when he gained valuable experience shooting artists in venues ranging from tiny sweaty pubs (with some of the best unsigned bands you've never heard of) to stadium gigs, tours, festivals and studio recordings with acts such as Oasis, Take That, Kasabian, Razorlight and The Kooks..
He now shoots for global record labels such as Polydor, Mercury, Fiction, Virgin, Parlophone, Island Records, Geffen and XL shooting press and artwork for artists such as La Roux, Elbow, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Take That, James Morrison, Lily Allen, KT Tunstall and The Verve. To add to this impressive client list, Andrew also shoots for MTV, Levi's, Musicians' Union and Mencap.
Andrew’s approach to shooting his subjects provides relaxed natural portraits showing the artists at work and play. Effortlessly cool, pure raw energy and very stylish are phrases that come to mind when describing his work. He is excited and inspired by all aspects of image making, comfortable and equally at home in a photo studio or onstage at Wembley.
