Andrew (b. 1987) is a documentary photographer, videographer and multimedia journalist based between his native Canada and adopted Brazil.

After a stint in the army followed by two years backpacking Southeast Asia and a near death experience on the Mekong, Andrew discovered the camera as a tool to understand and engage with the world around him; in short, the power of visual storytelling. After studying photojournalism and working briefly as a stringer for Canadian newspapers Andrew based himself in Brazil where he has been working on personal longterm documentary projects while freelancing for local and international press and NGOs since 2016.

Andrew is interested in stories about people and their relationship with their communities, society and the environment. Through his work, Andrew seeks to explore urgent global issues that are relevant beyond the immediate news cycle. His work has been published with the Toronto Star, O Estado de São Paulo and Mongabay, among others, while NGO clients include Amazon Watch and the Articulação dos Povos Indígenas do Brasil (APIB). In addition to being exhibited publicly in both Canada and Brazil, Andrew's work has been recognized by the International Photography Awards and the News Photographer's Association of Canada.

Andrew is fluent in both his native English and Brazilian Portuguese.
