WHO WE ARE
(video from Famous BTS Magazine)
Andy :: Photographer. Creative. Director.
Andy says “I discovered photography in high school—there was something instinctive and amazing about the whole process of it. That led me to the commercial photo program at RIT, which led me to become a photo assistant. 20 years later, here I am, still having fun being a photographer. Even though the ‘what’ has changed, my love of photography has not. This is still the best job ever.” Andy’s approach to photography is built out of a strong commitment to creating an intersection of image and story. Whether it’s working on a large scale project with a huge crew and bigger personalities, or an quiet portrait session in his own studio, his work shows a love for the act of discovery and the creativity of crafting with light. For Andy, it’s about using all the tools at his disposal, working with his clients and his subjects to create the best image possible. Clients have learned that working with Andy and his crew means that the project goes smoothly, on time, and on budget—whether it’s traveling to South America, or the South Waterfront of Portland. In 2014 Andy published his first book, Camera & Craft—a photography manual aimed at the inspired amateur. Andy currently has too many personal projects in his moleskine, which he says “is a good problem to have”.
Therese :: Producer. Studio Manager.
As co-owner of the studio, I produce all of our still and motion projects. After 20 years on the job so far, I am happy to say that I haven't seen it all, and remain thrilled by each and every job. I love producing, I love my crew, and at the end of every shoot, I love toasting to our success. It's a good life.
