Well hello there...

I am Andy Ford, photographer, based in East London, but forged in the West Country.

I work extensively in the editorial & music industry shooting for magazines including The NME & Kerrang, labels such as XL & Sony.

I have also worked on commercial commissions for major brands including Red Bull, Converse, Peugeot & Disney.

When not busy on commercial & editorial commissions I can be found pursuing personal projects usually focusing on raw landscape and coastlines.  My photographic roots are in surf culture, which I occasionally pursue when time allows.
