About Me

I am ...

... Andrew Brenchley and an amateur/aspiring professional photographer. I have occasionally over the years, shot professionally on projects for business, nature and weddings, but I have been an enthusiastic photographer since I was a child - ever since my father put a camera in my hand and showed me the view through the rangefinder. Then he showed me the 'magic' of bringing that 'wind-and-click' into life, on paper, in the darkroom. Wow!

Back then as I child, I wanted to be a nature photographer and find all the creatures that David Attenborough had shown us on the TV. After learning the basic skills of camera and darkroom use from my father, I had spent most years honing my use of the camera and I recall being extremely pleased if I managed to get 5 or 6 shots from a roll of 36 that I actually really liked!

When in my late teens, I began the 'adventure' of working a joband, it was then that I also discovered travelling after meeting a well travelled New Zealander at work. He is still my best friend and is also a photographer, and in those formative years I discovered many European cities with him on weekends away from our girlfriends! Our cameras and an assortment of lenses also went with us and so began my love of travel photography.

Through the lens

After experiencing Europe further with an cultural solo InterRail journey, I continued to explore the delights of street, people, landscape and architecture photography. There really is something special about wandering around the cultural cities of Europe in the early mornings before the hubbub of city life overcrowds the streets.

After a several years of solid work and little adventure, an opportunity for serious travelling came my way … and so I embarked on a two year 'round the world' trip. With an eagerness to explore the places that hitherto had only been admired on the TV, I packed a rucksack, loaded up my 35mm and medium-format cameras and set off into the sunrise to explore and also capture on film new lands, peoples and cultures.

After my return, I began the life of work again and I'm sad to say that my cameras then languished in their bags for months at a time and only came out into the light of day when going on vacation. But once a photographer, always a photographer, and over the past few years in particular, the advances in digital photography has re-envigorated my excitement to explore the world around me through the camera lens again!
