About me

Andrew Barber is a Freelance Photographer and IT Professional residing in the UK. He is also the Founder and Editor of 'OmniStyle' documenting trends from all over the world since 2012. As a freelance photographer, Andrew has a vast amount of experience in both street style, backstage and editorial work and has had the privilege of working with a variety of clients including Selfridges, Vogue Japan, GQ China, Essential Homme and more. Working in fashion and photography has enabled Andrew to express myself through his art form and fulfil his passion, whilst graduating with an IT background. When it comes to fashion, Andrew keeps himself abreast of upcoming trends and share with others through my photography, social networks and liaise with other professionals. Photographing outfits that not only enhance the appearance of an individual but also reflect the subject’s character and personality is something he truly enjoys.

Andrew was able to demonstrate a variety of IT and interpersonal skills when running user focused studies, designing wireframes, implementing the application and evaluating the final solution.
