Andrew Campbell is one of Australia's most talented, committed and versatile photographers.
Andrew Campbell has been a professional photographer since 1987 when he started working for The Canberra Times. He has subsequently worked on the staff of The Sydney Morning Herald and freelance for every major publication in Australia including TIME, The Bulletin, The Australian, The Age, WHO Weekly and The Financial Review. He has worked for AAP, AP of America and Reuters wire services and has shot commissioned assignments for The South China Morning Post and USA Today.
He spent two years in London working for the national broadsheet daily The Independent as a freelancer, covering such diverse subjects as The Royal Ascot races, a 'Punch and Judy' church service, a Pam Hogg fashion event and financial disasters in The City.
Having covered hundreds of diverse assignments in his lengthy career, some of the more obvious highlights would be the 2003 Canberra Bushfire (Walkley Award), the 2004 Rugby World Cup, Brumbies and Raiders premiership victories (and the odd defeat), the openings of both the New Parliament House (first photographer up the flagpole) and the National Museum of Australia, federal elections, the invasion of Parliament House by coal workers and students, the Wik High Court decision and holding hands with the Dalai Lama.
Andrew has worked for diverse corporate clients such as Raytheon, L.J.Hooker, BAE, Perth Mint, Salmat and Amnesty International. His work includes corporate headshots, editorials, events and advertising.
Though still available for all assignments, the bulk of his recent commercial work is architectural in nature.
Andrew lives in Canberra, Australia, has four children and a Degree in Economics from Sydney University.
He is a member of the MEAA (the journalists' union) and the National Press Photographers' Association (USA).
