Andrew and his team truly define the term ‘Pro Photographer’.
We’re an event management company that produce new vehicle launches and media drive events throughout North America. Over the past four years Andrew has worked with us on numerous events as our staff photographer. He not only has this incredible talent to snap photos that speak to our client needs, but he and his team are a real pleasure to work with. With so many people professing to be great photographers, that usually turn out to be nothing more than people with fancy cameras and a slick website, it gives me a great deal of pleasure to endorse Andrew and his team as the real deal. We never think twice about partnering with him.

Almost from its inception, Andrew has been the sole person responsible for Classic Car Adventures’ image.
Andrews photographs of our events are the marketing background of our entire company, through his images prospective entrants get a feel for the type of event they’ll experience; the roads, the cars, and the people. The photographs he’s captured have become so much more than promotional material, our clients purchase photos of our events to hang in the their homes as art. Perhaps most interesting, we’ve never given Andrew any direction as to the types of images to capture. Instead, Andrew sat down with us over coffee on the first year and asked us about the company, the people and the story of how we came to be. From there, he’s created a visual representation of what we do without any input, and we honestly couldn’t have improved upon it if we tried. Andrew’s images are as much a part of Classic Car Adventures, as we feel he is to the company … simply inseparable.

Andrew has been the exclusive photographer of the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack for the last ten years.
He has been there to take shots of all the highs and lows of our teams on the ice, the baseball diamond, soccer pitch along with the volleyball and basketball courts. His work is unparallalled among sports photographers. We are the envy of Canadian University Sport to have someone of his talent working for us. Not only is he at every one of our athletic events but also shoots head and team shots (traditional and nontraditional), has been involved in our marketing shoots but also our special gala events like our athletic awards banquet and fund raising breakfasts. Andrew goes beyond the average photographer to get the great shots. In regards to the formal shoots, he goes out of his way to make the subject feel at ease. If you are looking to hire a photographer, Andrew should be first on your list.
— Larry Read, Sports Information Officer, Thompson Rivers University
We’ve hired Andrew as lead event photographer on many occasions for Canadian rallies.
The nature of our events require a photographer to provide top level photography that depicts the excitement and speed of the event as well as capturing the human side of the sport. Our team is tight and nimble. We expect the same from our photographer, and that is where Andrews strengths truly come into play. We receive photography through the event for use on social media, and then receive a full gallery a few hours after the event’s completion. His professionalism assures us that on any given day, we’ll get the photography we need with little or no support on our part. That is why we’ve hired him in the past and that is why we will continue to hire him in the future.

I have worked with Andrew consistently for more than four years, and will continue to do so as long as he is available.
Despite being one of the funniest, likeable and easy-going people I have the privilege of working with, he is also one of the most reliable, professional and competent. When we bring Andrew to TRU to photograph our researchers and students they are often reluctant and unsure, but Andrew is skilled at putting them at ease and making them comfortable. He is always open to direction, and is eager to scout new locations, or to go further afield to get the best photos. Andrew’s care and dedication to the craft is remarkable, and the results of our photoshoots are always perfect. Andrew is genuinely passionate about the work he does, and I would confidently recommend him.
— Danna Bach, Communications Officer, Research and Graduate Studies, Thompson Rivers University.
Andrew came highly recommended from ongoing projects he had completed with Thompson Rivers University.
Our association recently spent 18 months producing our new Textbook. With over 1300 colour images and graphics. We recruited Andrew as an on-call photographer to shoot over a 15 month period, a great variety of images from many sectors of our industry such as: meat stores, staff, harvesting plants in operation, farm operations and stock, side and ingredient suppliers and product displays. In addition many of the images Andrew produced for us are proudly used to great effect on our website: www.meatforce.ca .
I found Andrew to be easy going, professional, and keen to tackle some of the more challenging work environments associated with Canada’s meat Industry. Despite his busy schedule Andrew always managed to fit us in and provide great images while also assisting with some image editing feedback we required. Andrews skill with the camera shows in the quality of his images in our textbook and I would not hesitate to contract him again or recommend his skill to anyone.
