Texas: Andy Mahr

Andy Mahr is a Texas-based photographer specialising in industrial photography. Andy's work has regularly been featured in the Communication Arts Photo Annual, PDN and One Eyeland's 'Best of the Best', and he has been nominated as one of Archive Magazine's '200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide' several times.

He also won the Production Paradise Corporate and Industrial category for 2018 and the Sports category for 2021.

As an industrial photographer, Andy loves capturing images that involve real world situations with real people doing real jobs. He often immerses himself into the environment with workers and gets dirty. He loves the gritty, hard working tenacity that his industrial subjects demonstrate and this is strongly characterised in his work.

Andy cut his teeth in the industry as an art director and worked his way up the ranks to creative director. In 2008, he made the full transition to photographer and never looked back. His invaluable experience has been a great resource, he speaks the language of his clients and is highly collaborative, always adding conceptual ideas to the project and taking it one step further. It is very natural of him to work on integrated campaigns that involve still and motion.

As a certified drone operator, he knows how to glorify dramatic landscapes. Whether it’s a farmer in the field, a fisherman at sea or a soldier combat training in the U.S. Marines, Andy flourishes in making each project feel powerful and spectacular. 

Andy is based in the Hill Country near Austin, Texas.
