Andrew Jackson Biography
I started my photography career as a freelance motorsports photographer in 1999, whilst studying for a BTEC National Diploma in Photography at the College of West Anglia, which I passed with a distinction.
During my time as a motorsport photographer I produced the official British Touring Car Champsionship calendar for 7 years. Each year varying the design to make it look as fresh as possible.
Some of my biggest influences have been John Hansell, who I had the privilege of working with for two years and Jakob Ebrey, who is one of the leading motorsport photographers in the country and helped me in my early time doing motorsport.
I feel my style has also been influenced by Don McCullum with his editorial style black and white portraits and reportage photography, which I admire greatly.
Upon loosing my regular (non photography) job, I decided to dedicate myself to photography full time, and now work freelance for Holts Auctioneers, photographing some of the world's most expensive guns, as well as knives and other items for sale at auction, in a studio set up.
I combine this with other freelance work, when available, and feel I am able to turn my hand to most types of photography if the need arose.
