“I consider myself one of the lucky ones. From a very early age, I knew exactly what I wanted to do: explore the natural world and inspire others to appreciate and enjoy the beauty. I love what I do.”
Andrew Slaton picked up a manual camera for the first time when he was 14. A backpacking trip in to Colorado’s amazingly beautiful Weminuche wilderness inspired him to lug a Canon AE-1, several lenses, and 20 rolls of color and black & white film. Andrew was hooked. He began exploring and honing his craft in middle school and high school.
Andrew went on to earn his bachelor’s degree in photojournalism from the University of Texas at Austin. He has been a professional photographer for 15 year, and in those years, Andrew has traveled the world for a variety of clients, and won several international awards.
His photographs have appeared in numerous newspapers, magazines, and books including, Sierra, Outside, Texas Parks & Wildlife, among others, and a commercial client list that includes Omni Hotels, prAna, MLB, Nordstrom, Nemo, etc.
He regularly contributes stock video and still footage, and is represented by Tandem Stills + Motion in LA and Image Brief in NY.
On occasion, Andrew shares his experience and knowledge through select destination workshops.
Andrew lives on the road full time with his yoga instructor wife, Ellen, and aussie pup (Islay Blue).
