Author and teacher

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Andrew S. Gibson and I’m here to help you take better photos.

My interest in photography began when my parents bought me a Ricoh KR-10m camera over 20 years ago. Since that day I progressed from colour negative to slide and black and white film and finally to digital, when I bought my first digital SLR, an EOS 350D, in 2006. I used Canon EOS cameras for many years, and now my main system is the Fujifilm range, which I like for the portability and quality.

I’ve taken photos in over 60 countries, studied for a degree in photography and worked as Technical Editor for EOS magazine. Now I write and publish books about photography. In recent years I’ve lived in China, New Zealand and the UK, which is now my home.
