Andrew HindHi, I’m Andrew. I created Photography Sponge to help you! I’ve been a professional photographer and photography teacher since 2003 and in that time I’ve helped countless photographers to understand how photography really works and to take better pictures.

I started my photographic journey as a teenager photographing on film and processing and printing pictures in a makeshift darkroom in the bathroom! I’ve taken pictures using dustbins as pinhole cameras, on vintage film and medium format cameras right the way through to today’s cutting edge digital SLRs and mirrorless cameras. I’m mainly a wedding photographer by profession but I also really enjoy street photography and I love documentary imagery and pictures that are based in reality and have authenticity and emotional value.

I’ve taught photography to Sixth formers, secondary and primary school children as well as to adults and I have a wealth of years of teaching experience to draw upon.
