Andrew Studer is a professional outdoor commercial photographer videographer and timelapse cinematographer based in Portland, Oregon. With a huge passion for the outdoors, Andrew is constantly seeking out adventure and unique and engaging ways to capture what he sees. His passion for the earth has driven him to capture the world’s most beautiful waterfalls, mountains, forests and natural phenomenons. From images of seals swimming through glaciers in Iceland to portraiture of remote Himalayan tribespeople, Andrew’s work showcase the wonderful world we live in.

In addition to the inspiration Andrew felt from the beauty of Oregon, Andrew was also artistically engaged at a young age. As a child, Andrew was a passionate sketch artist drawing detailed animal portraits as well as vivid landscapes. As his love for art progressed, Andrew became involved with video production in 2012 creating short films. Over the years, Andrew continued video production into college while also breaking into photography. By the end of his sophomore year, Andrew felt it was time to leave school to dedicate more time to photography and focus on his craft.

Andrew began his freelance career in the summer of 2015 creating content for a variety of clients in the outdoors.  He now spends over a third of the year traveling across the world on commissioned shoots and on adventures capturing content for his personal photo collections. His work has been featured in publications such as National Geographic, Yahoo News, BBC Earth, The Sarah Silverman Show, The Weather Channel, CBS News, The Daily Mail and more. Andrew is available for hire nationally as well as worldwide.
