Andrew was born in London where his mother had a couture dress shop and his father was a race car driver. He grew up surrounded by fashion and racing magazines, drinking in the excitement, glamour, and adventure of the time through their pictures. He fell in love with photography at thirteen. Instantly he knew it was all he wanted to do, so he left school at fifteen and started work in a photo production house in Fleet Street. It was a grey, grim Dickensian place staffed by miserable old men, but it was a start. It gave him the all important experience to move up the ladder of assisting, leading him to work with such exceptional photographers as Lord Snowdon, Horst, Fabrizio Gianni and Ed White. At twenty-two his first fashion story was published in Harpers & Queen. Over the next eighteen months he then shot for all the main London magazines including i-D, The Face, The Sunday Times, and the short lived but wonderful Jill magazine out of Paris. With so many fashion shoots out so quickly Vogue, fashion's bible, then started to commission him, first in London, then Paris, and finally Italian Vogue, the ultimate commission for any young photographer. After this the big advertisers came onboard, with campaigns for Diesel Jeans, Levi’s, Dunhill, Kookai, Rayban to name a few. It was shooting on location for these clients that he discovered and fell in love with California. He continued to work as a fashion photographer for several more years, splitting his time between London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles, but gradually refocused his energies on the entertainment industry, moving to the city he fell in love with in 1994. Since then he has been based in LA working in the entertainment industry, shooting movie posters, album/CD covers and magazines from all around the world.
