About Andrea

I grew up in a quintessentially small town in southern Virginia with an artist mother who harbored my own artistic talents and instincts from a very young age. From doodling to sketching to drawing to painting to writing stories to writing poetry to playing the piano, creativity was always a part of my life. I don't have a clear memory of exactly when it happened, but one day I decided that photography was it.

I bought my first film camera, a Nikon single lens reflex, after saving up my babysitting money the summer before my freshman year of high school. I absolutely fell in love with the medium and found that I had a very instinctive eye for composition. With wanderlust in my veins, I longed to move away from my small town and go somewhere far away, so I traveled south and attended The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in Florida. I graduated with an Associates degree in Photography and produced a portfolio defined by clean, bold, simple, and colorful images.

After college I moved back home to Virginia where I started my own freelance photography business while also working as a full-time photographer at a printing company where I nurtured my love of studio photography. My wandering heart then led me even further across the country to the west coast where I spent a few years in San Francisco, California, which greatly inspired my black and white Holga film series.

I've recently returned to what I consider my roots in photography, before I even knew what I was doing: film and all the happy accidents that come with it. Film contains that magical quality that digital still can't quite capture. So after looking at my photographs, don't be surprised to find a grainy image of a sky full of cotton candy clouds as well as a bold, perfectly lit studio image of wine glasses. I'm not sure what the vast difference in styles says about me - the difference in controlling everything and just letting things happen - but they are both me and they are both honest.

I currently reside in the Los Angeles area where photography has become less of a career and more of a hobby. I've spent the last few years simultaneously delighting in and cursing the unwavering warm weather of southern California and ironically longing for the rolling hills and changing seasons of my hometown. I spend my free time reading, cross stitching, drinking coffee and filling up my overflowing bookshelves.

Additional policies and FAQs
All photographs are printed on Epson Ultra Premium Luster Photographic Paper with archival Epson UltraChrome inks. They are then sprayed with archival lacquer sprays to protect against fingerprints, dust and UV rays. Please note that the spray does not reduce the quality of the print.

All computer monitors look different, so the images may have a slight color cast or look too bright or too dark on your monitor. Upon receiving your print, you might notice slight color differences. This is considered normal and is not a printing defect on my behalf.
