I have known Andre for 18 years he was the 3rd person I met in Hong Kong. We became quick and good friends. A year or two later Andre and I shared an apartment on Lamma where we lived back in those days. It was a three bedroom flat, so the third bedroom was given over to darkroom use. I had my computer and scanner and Andre had his enlarger and chemicals. Over the course of the next few years we lived together I watched Andre printing his work and we both enjoyed helping each other out with our projects.
I was a budding young eager to learn photographer with a firm and early grounding in the digital world. Andre was old school, chemicals and paper guy. We both learned alot from each other, and if you ask Andre about his photoshopping skills, he will happily say I taught him everything he knows. Actually he knows alot more than me now, as we don’t do the retouching anymore.
Andre’s fashion work has always blown my mind, the guy is so creative and the ideas he comes up with are amazing and cool. Andre has been shooting fashion for some 25 years, having worked on major campaigns for big brands.
Andre moved into Hong Kong Photography Studio in 2013 and it has been great to reconnect with him. Andre is our official Hong Kong’s Top FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER, and we are lucky to have him.
