Mark Andrew - Artistic images |
The artistic photography of Mark Andrew is filled with energy, emotion, and expression that he creates by combining his many skills with insight, and a unique collaboration with his subjects. The artistic merit of the images combined with the universal appeal of the subject matter makes an indelible impression on the viewer. "The process of creating artistic images is multifaceted, and always a great joy. I almost always begin by talking with my subject in an informal collaboration," explained Andrew. "The bonding and rapport that develop between us heightens inspiration and creativity, bringing a uniqueness to every subject I photograph," he added.
Artistic photography & Software tools
There is no distinct style in the work by Andrew. His art is made up of many diverse styles of images that are as distinct as his many subjects. "There is an emotional connection I try to express in every creation," Andrew explained. Viewers can feel that emotion in each image, which elevates his work from portraits to art. Just as an artist who paints has the ability to be creative, Andrew extends his creativity to his studio where he makes full use of the software tools that are available to him. "Artistic photography goes beyond just capturing existing light and image. Computers give us unlimited possibilities to take a photograph and turn it into an emotion-packed work of art," he explained.
