Andrew Shafer has been shooting professionally since 2006, working with businesses, and organizations to create the visual assets necessary to promote their ideas, products or people. His ambition is to create high quality images that each client is thrilled with, either on location or at his studio.
A passion for the outdoors, adventure, and the natural world, is what initially had Andrew hooked on photography. A move to Maui helped engrave his passion in photography and the ocean and got him thoroughly addicted to making images.
Andrew studied commercial photography in Santa Barbara with a group of world-class instructors and professional photographers, which pulled back the curtain on what a career in photography could be.
Tremendous opportunities have allowed him to have worked on a wide variety of projects with a great collection of clients. Photography has allowed him to go places, meet people and see things he may not have otherwise. Andrew is grateful for every person, client, and opportunity that he's come across throughout his career, because these have been, and continue to be, the building blocks of his business.
These days Andrew is inspired by his family, and the important fact that he still gets to do what he enjoys!
Some of my favorite clients I've worked with over the years
“Andrew was such a big help in the rebranding of our Country Club. He took updated headshots of our leadership team. Captured beautiful photos of the golf course, our outdoor and indoor entertaining space and even added some shots of our staff setting up an event. Throughout the process, Andrew worked well with all of our team’s different personalities and captured our vision in his work. He was easy to work with, very flexible and was early setting up. We are so happy with how the photos turned out and will definitely be using him for any future projects!”
“Andrew’s an exceptional photographer and digital artist. Our imagery has taken a big step up thanks to his eye and execution. And he goes the extra mile to make our clients look good as well.”
“Event photographs that call you in, tell you a story and have an energy all their own are rare indeed. His control of the lighting, depth of field and his amazing sense of timing come together to create images that are truly on a different level. It has been a pleasure working with Andrew over the last couple years; his images have captured our brand and are used throughout our marketing efforts. If you need a world-class photographer, you’ve come to the right place.”
“Getting headshots done with Andrew was a great, easy experience. He’s obviously knowledgeable about what will look good, plus he was just friendly and talkative, so I didn’t feel so awkward. And the results were some of the best pictures I have of myself – my parents even wanted to frame one for their wall!”
