“If you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff.”
— Jim Richardson, Photographer for National Geographic
Andy began working with a DSLR and a 50 mm fixed lens when he was 8-years-old. His natural gift and curiosity were quickly apparent as he captured a 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, also curious and a designer, began traveling with Andy across the US so that he could share his particular view of the country. Landscapes and architecture photos are the highlights of his work. He currently works using a FUJIFILM X100T with a fixed 23mm lens.
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. The time has come for him to move forward on the path toward a promising career. Now at 19-years-old, he is offering his work for others to enjoy and collect.
In his spare time, Andy likes to coach lacrosse, ride his bike, and post music videos on Instagram.
