I was born in the US and had a pretty unremarkable childhood. I got my start as a photographer when I joined the Navy and was given training a photographer and graphic designer. From there I was sent me to Japan and Spain where I not only got the see the world, but also got to photograph it. I struck out on my own to create a now failed publishing venture and had some hijinks in Washington D.C. I have collected cameras, sold them all, then started collecting again with a ‘less is more’ philosophy.
I now work for the Texas Military Department where I publish the monthly magazine as well as write articles and take most of the photos.
I have a blog with some of my work, cameras and opinions:
I also dabble in instagram for those with free time a and a mobile device: @andrewsmith4680
