It was whilst growing up in Portsmouth that Andy was first inspired to take up photography. Flicking through a copy of Kerrang! Magazine his imagination was fired by pictures of an Iron Maiden gig and shooting Maiden for Kerrang! became his ambition. Whilst his career went off in a different path, Andy's passion for photography never dwindled. In 2005 Andy took up photography as his full time profession.

Andy started shooting for Kerrang! Magazine in 2013 and is loving every second of it. Since then he has shot 100's of bands right across the UK from the Isle of Wight to Glasgow, in every size venue from a small pub in Barnsley to festival headliners.

2014 saw Andy achieve that boyhood ambition when he photographed Iron Maiden for Kerrang! Magazine.

As well as shooting gigs for Kerrang! Magazine, Andy also lectures in photography, mentors fashion photographers, is a leading boudoir photographer, shoots weddings & portraits, and eats far too many Snickers.
