He was given the opportunity to be one of twelve select photographers invited to document the XIX Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City. He was also honored to participate in the “God Made a Farmer” RAM Trucks Super Bowl XLVII ad project, which featured many of Andy’s images.
Andy grew up in St. Cloud, Florida and currently lives in Mountain Home, Idaho with his wife and kids. When not traveling on assignment, he can often be found in his Airstream trailer with his bird dog on hunting or fly fishing trips. Andy believes advertising in its highest form is art and brings an enthusiasm for adventure and life to both his personal and commercial work. He is hired for his ability to infuse this into his lifestyle, location landscape, portrait and automotive imagery.
His work has been recognized by numerous award shows, The New York Art Directors Club, Communication Arts, and Graphis and was nominated for Life Magazine “Eisie Award” for excellence in photojournalism. He was a finalist for the MPA Kelly awards for Creative Excellence In Magazine Advertising and winner of the Gold Addy Award for self-promotion in print advertising. The Forbes Gallery has work of his in their permanent collection and his work was featured in an exhibition at The Art Institute of Boston.
