Andre, an early-thirtysomething lifestyle photographer enthusiast, knows a thing or two about beauty.

With a knack for creating images that are vibrant, jovial, whimsical, and playful, he brings out the best in his subjects, capturing who they really are, not just who they want to be. But that skill didn’t come easily.

Growing up, he constantly battled a crippling depression sparked by an overwhelming feeling that something–everything–was wrong with him. However, at the end of high school, when he picked up his first camera, things began to change.

Suddenly, within his hands was a key to seeing the world through new eyes and a tool for re-imagining not only who he was but everyone around him. That’s when the real battle began. And that’s just the beginning.
