Andy began working with a DSLR and a 50mm, fixed lens when he was 8-years-old. His natural gift and curiosity were quickly apparent as he captured a distinct worldview through his unique lens. Andy may or may not have more chromosomes than you. (Odds are he does.)
Andy’s uncle, a professional, commercial photographer, began offering instruction and insight to grow Andy’s talents. His father, a designer and software developer, began traveling with Andy across the U.S. so that he could share his particular view of the country. Andy’s portfolio is uniquely diverse for his young age, covering a geographic range that continues to expand, supported by sales of his photography.
Landscapes and architecture photos are the highlights of his work and Andy shows a preference for approaching his subjects directly to capture their intricate, contrasting details. He currently works using a FUJIFILM X100V with a fixed 23mm lens. At his studio, alongside his dad, Andy is learning to make his photographic prints himself—from digital preparation to cutting archival papers and manually handing each meticulous print. His individual involvement means every order is connected to Andy.
People with Down syndrome are often underestimated, but they each have their own gifts to offer the world when given opportunities to flourish. Andy demonstrated early on that he has the natural talent and skill to capture a unique and beautiful vision of the world. Moving into adulthood, he is moving forward on the path toward a promising career and sharing an example to others with disabilities to reach their potentials as well.
In his spare time, Andy likes to coach lacrosse, ride his bike, and post music videos on Instagram. Andy has attended Reinhardt University since Fall 2022.
