Andrew has always loved art. He came out of the womb singing loudly, spent several preschool hours on his plastic red slide conducting a huge orchestra of grass and bushes, and labored even more teenage hours on photoshop trying to make his muscles look bigger. Now that he is an adult and has had several years of professional experience behind the lens and computer, he has realized a valuable truth that Henry Miller once spoke of: "Art teaches nothing except the significance of life."
Andrew longs for his life to be more than a pursuit of success or fame-- he yearns for significance. He wants every client and person that he meets to know that they are not a check to cash or manikin to be mechanically contorted, but that each have a unique purpose, an indescribable value, and a God who loves them unconditionally. Vincent Van Gogh once said, "I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say 'he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.' " The same goal echoes in the hearts of both artists.
"Truly, photographing a person's whole heart is not an easy task. In fact, it's impossible. But it is in this journey -- this quest for true, unadulterated beauty and uniqueness -- that I find my life's passion . . . to love with all that I am."
