Andrew is both a busy boy and a migratory bird, so he spends much of his time in either Melbourne Australia or Kyoto/Tokyo Japan, and other places in between. Please check below for the current schedule, but contact him to confirm where he currently is and will be.

Andrew's bag is never really unpacked. He is ready to go as the job requires. Andrew's passport lets him into most countries with just a landing visa, and can book flights often at the last minute if needed. However, planning ahead may be required as there are certain times of the year when international and domestic travel can be difficult. Namely, Chinese New Year, in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore, and such. Gregorian Calendar New Year and Golden Week in Japan. Mid-summer festival in Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and other places.
Furthermore, access to some places may be difficult due to seasonal popularity, which is often the case in Japan. Cherry blossoms and autumnal colours appear for a short period of time, and can result in traffic, travel, and pedestrian mayhem and bedlam.
Consequently, it's best to book ahead as early as possible, in case there may be issues regarding movement. Please contact us to help plan well.
Andrew uses contracts to make clear what the job is, what is required, and delivers on these contractual promises. He creates a shoot list, does planning, research, and preparation. Any models he uses sign model releases, any makeup artists and assistants also sign model releases for behind the scenes promotional purposes. All people involved behave professionally in work settings. Andrew has learnt how to respect and present the dignity of people, and so he is an excellent representative of your project. He researches destinations, and so he learns details like how in Korean temples you should wear long trousers (regardless of the heat), and Vietnamese temples should never wear tanktops or singlets, shoulders must be covered (regardless of the heat), that sort of respect to the local people.
Andrew keeps notes on the photos he takes, and shares them as necessary with who ever he needs to collaborate with. All photos are properly captioned and keyworded. Files are delivered securely, and are easily accessible by the intended recipient. He believes in a free and secure internet, and so all communications are through encrypted channels.
