Andrew Vanasse has a passion for human connection. It is humans, after all, that make the image. With a face more than just his mother could love, subjects find themselves relaxed and able to be vulnerable and honest, which leads to vulnerable and honest portraits. His quirky sense of humor and refusal to settle for the safe, boring option shows clearly in his images, ensuring they are never passed over as “just another photo.” Andrew’s skilled use of color, composition and light allows him to capture the subtleties and unpredictabilities of emotion in all subjects, whether they are a celebrity, athlete,  CEO or someone he passed on the sidewalk.

Andrew is thankful to have worked with clients such as Bleacher Report, Adidas, Reebok, Inc. Magazine, The North Face and hopes to collaborate with more clients focused on sustainability and ethical business practices. He is also working on an ongoing personal project, #BTG which he hopes will bridge the gap between femininity and masculinity both in art and society.

First Kiss With My Wife: I fell onto her after drinking too much tequila on Cindo de Mayo and missing the perfect opurtinity the day before. She’s still with me almost 10 years later, so I take that as a win.
