Now, some 12 years later Andy has just completed his first assignment for National Geographic magazine and his story on Northern gannets is to be published in the August 2012 issue of this legendary magazine. He has also completed 7 photo features for BBC Wildlife with others scheduled for publication in 2013. His images are also marketed all over the world by a network of some of the world's top international agencies including Getty Images (USA), Corbis (USA), Lonely Planet Images (Australia), RSPB Images, Nature Picture Library, FLPA, NHPA (all UK) and FotoNatura (Holland). In the last 2 years alone his images have been sold in more than 30 countries worldwide, from Hong Kong to Mexico, New Zealand to Taiwan and from Chile to China.
His client list is no less exhaustive and as well as National Geographic and BBC Wildlife his images have also been used by The Discovery Channel, The New York Times, National Geographic Traveler as well as major UK broadsheets such as the Times, The Guardian and the Daily Telegraph.
Though he has travelled widely it is the wildlife and wild places of Britain that is his greatest passion and he spends the majority of the year travelling to some of the UK's most remote areas, often choosing to spend months working with a particular species. It is this desire to immerse himself completely into his subjects lives that allows Andy to frequently capture aspects of behaviour that have seldom been seen before, let alone photographed.
His images have also won awards in some of the world's most prestigious photographic competitions including Wildlife Photographer of the Year, European Wildlife Photographer of the Year (Germany), Natures Best (USA) and the British Wildlife Photography Awards and he is also one of the 2020VISION photographers.
