Interview with food and lifestyle photographer Rob Andrew

During this Live event people were able to ask Rob questions and receive his answers in real-time.

Hi, my name is Rob. I’m a freelance photographer, and I live midway between San Diego and L.A. I grew up in Detroit before my dad moved us out to California. My folks loved to travel the U.S., and I saw most of the lower 48 before I was 12 years old.

I love to cook, love all things food. I also love to travel and see new faces.  Meeting new people is important to me, and I’m fortunate enough to have a job that allows me to do just that.

I believe in treating each assignment as my last. I will happily roll around on the ground or climb a tree to get that perfect composition for you.
