With a strong focus on subcultures, lost arts and the edge-lands
of modern life, Andy’s immersive, collaborative approach enables
him to dig deep and tell stories that matter. He has worked with
subjects as diverse as Hells Angels, farmers and Elvis tribute acts,
getting under the skin of contemporary life in the UK and beyond.

Andy brings this same attention to detail and passion for fresh,
contemporary image making to his work with commercial clients.
He has collaborated with artisans, design agencies, brands, NGO’s
and businesses from the UK to Tanzania to communicate their
message incisively and emotively through film and photography.
