Kind

I have been a photographer for 13 years and still continue to learn from so many photographers. I was at a retreat that Andreas was speaking at last year and was blown away at how much I took away. I was so inspired by his talk. He has such an incredible way of speaking to his audience that really connects. I’m pretty sure there might have been some tears. His words carry a lot of weight to them so where you not only hear what he is saying, but also feel it. Leaving the retreat, I felt I got the most out of his talk. It’s stuck with me even months after.

Andreas

My entire career has been one in pursuit of meaning and purpose. After my research career at the Universities of Cambridge and Harvard, I had a high-flying career in international high-tech, and then led the digital department of a multimillion marketing firm. I also taught primary school children seeking asylum from the war in the middle East. Today, after 4 careers, I am happy my life is dedicated to capturing life’s greatest events in the most meaningful manner, and to teaching remarkable photographers discover their vision and lead a life fuelled by a sense of purpose.

My work stems from my overwhelming desire to advocate for empathy, empowerment, and the spreading of kindness. I hope that by showing all the goodness that exists in the world, I might help make the world a bit better, ever so slightly. I can imagine nothing more powerful than two humans in love!

My passion and vision is to help YOU create a thriving brand you can be proud of; a brand with lasting positive impact.
