Hi, my name is Andy Beeson, and I am a artist & photographer based in Dorset, UK.
I value photographs above anything else in the world for the extraordinary role that they play in providing us with fond memories to look back on. If you ended up relocating to the other side of the world, your favourite photographs would most likely travel with you above anything else. Whether a photo is a nostalgic old school photograph, a cheesy family portrait, your favourite selfie with your best friend on a special occasion, or one of those ghastly images that makes you wince in recoil, every single one of these photos leaves lasting footprints in our lives. And through these photographs, we can relive each moment again and again, remembering how we felt and who was involved.
This is why I am so passionate about photography, and why I think that photography is one of the most valuable things in the world. First and foremost, I am a creative photographer and I love capturing beautiful, sometimes quirky images using natural light, composition, and emotion. I am skilled at using my cameras and utilise my techniques accordingly to create the effect that feels most natural in the moment. I love being on my feet with cameras most of all, where I make the most of the natural light that is available to me. But I also love creating imagery using my speed-lights, which also leads to impressive results.
Every photographer has their own very unique style that you will either “connect” with or not. Very much like the first impressions that we form when we meet new people for the first time, the same also applies to photography - you will know instantly whether you like the photographer’s style or not. If you feel like you connect with my style of photography, then by all means, please contact me. I would love to work with you!
I founded redManhattan Photography in February 2016 with the support of my family and husband. Admittedly, thinking of a name is not always the easiest of tasks! However, on a trip to New York with my partner for Valentine’s weekend in February 2016, we walked on top of the skyscrapers of Manhattan and looked out across the thousands of buildings that have been created and built over the years. Instantly, I felt the sheer passion of New Yorkers who made their dreams a reality, and I was inspired by them all. The name therefore became quite simple. Valentine’s Day is associated with the colour red, and Manhattan was the source of the overwhelming inspiration that I experienced = redManhattan.
I hope that you like it as much as I do!
