Andrew Chandler, Photographer
I love the fact that photography is both art and science. I’ve worked in and around Hull and East Yorkshire for many years, offering a range of photographic services that include weddings, portraiture and general commercial work, as well as landscape and travel photography.
From my early attempts to capture images as a child with my first camera, through spending countless hours in a darkroom developing black and white prints while studying at university, to the present day – photography has always fascinated me. Despite advances in digital photography and the ability to automate so many camera functions, it’s still about trying to communicate a moment in time – ensuring good composition and paying attention to detail – all before the shutter is released.
Whilst my base near Beverley means that I usually operate in and around the Yorkshire region, I am happy to work further afield in the UK and abroad. My photographic holidays in France and Italy are proving more and more popular and these enable me to share my passion with others in some wonderful settings. Photography is now such an accessible medium and assisting others to improve their technical and creative skills is important to me and the reason why I also help to run the Viewfinder Photographic Society, a successful photography club in East Yorkshire.
