Andrew grew up in North Queensland, knows its moods and places intimately, and is passionate about photographing the region’s people, landscapes and lifestyles.  Andrew also loves teaching and passing on his hard-earned photographic skills and knowledge to those with an interest in photography.

When he doesn’t have a camera in his hands, he’s usually planning his next photographic adventure, or just enjoying the outdoors, mostly with fishing rod in hand.
