Name: Andrew Mackenzie
Location: Essex, UK
Started photography: Self-taught Photographer since 2005
Area of expertise: Music, Portrait & Events Photography
My passion for music photography started in 2005, as a teenager I would go out with friends to local gigs and I started taking photos of two of my friends' bands which leapfrogged me to shoot a lot of gigs at two of my local venues which were bigger.
With my foot in the door of the music scene, I was then approached by a friend whom I knew who took photos to photograph one of my other friends in 2007 who wanted to do modelling, I gave it a go and I really enjoyed it. I had experience with both types of photography, the fast-paced upbeat, think on your feet Music photography and Portrait photography which was something I could think about a plan.
2008/2009 was a big year for me in both my Music & Portrait photography in 2008 I was asked to do a shoot for a local Goth magazine ( Nocturnal Magazine) which was shortly followed by being asked to do photography for an Essex-based music magazine. I wanted to get published and I achieved that in both these areas in the same year I felt like I was finally getting noticed.
From then till now I have grown as a photographer; attending various workshops, teaching myself and networking with other creators. I have worked with lots of musical artists, models, and other clientele.
So If you wish to have your Portrait or Concert shot or a special event captured I'm your man.
