About me
Andy Hughes is a Lifestyle & Portrait photographer based in the UK, he explores themes of escapism and adventure through his mixed media practice. “If I’m creating a narrative or I’m on a journey I want to be able to document that any which way I see fit, whether it be a series of stills, gifs or video clips. The most important part to me is to capture how I feel at that time when I’m creating a study of work and to tell a story of a place or person. I want the work to feel raw, gritty and honest. By having time to build mini relationships with my subjects I feel that my work becomes more real” Recent trips have seen Andy on a yacht in the fjords in Norway, the hills and beaches in the south of France and the mountains and forests of Canada. Clients Include Sony, Warner Bros, NME, Q , National Geographic, This is Global, Indian Motorcycle, Millican, Sidetracked Adventure Travel, Ellis Brigham, EO Charging, appear [here], Adidas, Nikon, H&M, Crew Clothing Co, Budweiser & Red Bull.

  • EO Charging
    EO ChargingI was commissioned last year through this platform by EO Charging. They were looking for a photographer to collaborate with on all levels.

Exciting times ahead, I'm really looking forward to working with the team more. Getting deliveries to your door in a more sustainable way presents a challenge. Thanks to our collaboration with Mercedes-Benz V
  • Sytch Farm Studios
    Sytch Farm StudiosSytch Farm Studios Jon & Gill are makers, from their studio they craft from clay, wood & metal. I had the pleasure recently to head down and spent a little time in their company and shoot a narrative to showcase the very best of what they do. I think time almost disappears when finding common ground, and that always seems to happen when meeting other creators. It makes the whole documentation so effortless and easy for my subject matter which is key to how I work. Not only do I want the view
  • Romjul
    RomjulThe period between Christmas and New Year is always a lul, time spent reminiscing about the year that's nearly gone and getting excited and making plans for the year ahead. For most its an unusual time where most people don't know what to do with themselves, they’ve had more than enough turkey and won’t to see another buffet until at least the next festive period. Unlike us in the UK the Norwegians have a term for this period of time “Romjul” is more than just a calendar term, it’s also a rit
  • Sidetracked Adventures x Ellis Brigham
    Sidetracked Adventures x Ellis BrighamA two day shoot exploring the Brecon Beacons. This shoot will form part of a new partnership between the retailer and travel company. It's taken a while to bring this together as we were waiting on the Government guidelines for Wales. Bringing in friends to model made the shoot really relaxed, it really felt like a few hikes that I just so happened to document. It was key to shoot all the garments and because of the conditions on day one we were able to fully show the capabilities of their

  • Lost Village
    Lost Villagean immersive festival experience in an abandoned woodland village... As you venture into the woods, you enter a land that time forgot; an ancient forest inhabited by all manner of unusual people. Nomadic tribes, clandestine cults and misplaced souls, all wonder its leafy corridors. Once inside you will co-exist with the native people of the Village, as reality flickers and a new world arises. A surreal dreamscape of unsolved mysteries. Fanatic have been the official photography since Lost Vill
