ANDY HALL ARTIST PHOTOGRAPHER
Artist / Photographer passionate about exploring desert landscapes, abandoned buildings and places where few humans go. My photography has been evolving recently and this journey continues to be an interesting and fulfilling exploration of technical skill combined with artistic expression. I hope you enjoy the work as much as I've enjoyed creating it.
Desert Photography is a series of landscape photography. I first started shooting landscapes to capture the exquisite beauty of the desert, and have since began to include various other landscapes into this series. Including ocean and beach shots, some wildlife and will continue to add more to this expanding shelf of my portfolio.
Military Photography includes images captured at events, air shows, museums and military demonstrations. This section of my portfolio is continuing to expand and showcases new images on a regular basis.
Night Ops is a series of photos I've taken that captures the mystique and beauty, only achievable in low light conditions. This type of photography is very difficult to get right, and requires extra time and planning to execute successfully.
Industrial is a series of photos that I've only recently begun. These images illustrate the grand presence of the machine world in our everyday lives, which is not often seen by most people. These complex structures and elaborate systems are the magic behind our daily existence and yet go unnoticed by most people. This project attempts to bring these images to the fore of our consciousness.
In my Post-Apocalyptic Photography series, I showcase how the world of today, sometimes reflects the apocalyptic worlds of fantasy / fiction writers, filmmakers and other story tellers.
Andrew Hall started AMI Studios Inc, in 2001. A marketing firm in Southern Nevada, AMI specializes in graphic design, web development and Internet marketing. Andrews' experience in business development and marketing allows him to continually provide direction and ensure the growth of his company.
A career in marketing was not even a dream for Andrew when he graduated from Vacaville High, in California. It might've been on a bet or a dare, but Andrew went into the Air Force to seek adventure and life experience. While stationed at Vandenberg Air Force Base, he met his wife Flora and started a family shortly after being discharged in 1989. Working as a limo driver, security guard and various odd jobs, eventually led to a job in loss prevention with JC Penney.
Working with JC Penney allowed Andrew and his family to move to Nevada where the job market was booming and the housing market was affordable. Arriving in Henderson, NV in 1996 Andrew and his family managed to buy their first home using his VA loan and borrowing money for the closing cost from his dad. JC Penney provided good pay and stability for his family but Andrew felt drawn to something else.
After nearly 10 years, he left the steady income and security of working for JC Penney and survived off the modest salary Flora brought home and their small savings. He studied design and computers until landing a job in a warehouse for a print shop. Starting at the bottom turned out to be the right decision and Andrew soon worked his way up to lead designer, but still knew he could do more.
After two years working for that printing company, Andrew was decided to start his own company. Again Andrew left the security of a steady job and a paycheck to start a new career, but this time he had a plan.
AMI Studios Inc was started in his living room in 2001. Working as a freelance website designer / graphic designer, he began building Flash websites for a small group of friends and clients. His philosophy that websites are not meant to be static forms of sales media has remained constant and is brought to life in every project he works on.
Since the beginning of his career as an entrepreneur, Andrew has understood the value of strong relationships in business and has worked at forging key relationships with all of his clients. The fact that AMI Studios is still in business today, is a testament to that endeavor.
Andrews' clients often turn to him for his experience and knowledge of Internet technologies to help them establish their online presence. He works side by side with business owners to bring their vision to life and in doing so provides the catalyst for many successful business ventures.
After so many years as an entrepreneur, working with clients such as Nevada Broadcasters Association, VH1, Terrible Herbst and many others, Andrew decided to scale down his business and once again work from home. His new focus is to continue working with his most loyal clients to maintain and grow their web presence, while simultaneously expanding his knowledge and skill in the field of fine art photography.
Stay tuned to see what's next in the diverse and creative journey of Andrew Hall.
