About - Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer and Photography Teacher Simon Andrews

About

Simon Andrews now earns a full time living as a Wedding Photographer and Photography Teacher in Colorado Springs. He began taking photography seriously over a decade ago, and grew a part time passion in to a full time career.

His start in photography came when choosing to leave his home in the UK and explore the world. For 12 months, he traveled with his camera across SE Asia, India and lived in Japan for 4 years. After meeting his now wife, Colorado became his permanent home. Shortly after moving to Colorado, a wedding photographer friend and owner of an established wedding photograpy business in Colorado Springs needed help with his wedding bookings, so Simon stepped in to assist. Not being a "2nd shooter" kind of person, he was soon being booked as the lead wedding photographer. He also books his own weddings and photo shoots, mosly through word of mouth.

A passion for teaching led to him to start private photography lessons in 2011. He enjoyed it so much, the classes grew until the eventual development of the Colorado Photography School in Downtown Colorado Springs (14 E Bijou St, between Tejon and Cascade), which opened in January 2013. Since then he has helped hundreds of photographers understand their camera and take better pictures.

Simon has lived in Colorado Springs, Colorado since 2006 with his Coloradon wife, and has no plans to call anywhere else home.
