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.
Andy recently won 1st place at the APA Awards in the Industrial category. He also won the Production Paradise Spotlight Awards 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 in 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 fully transitioned 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 natural for him to work on integrated campaigns involving stills and motion. Andy's recent industrial and agriculture projects include: Harvey Gulf and Real Trucks (both stills and motion), and he also directed four TV commercials for O'Reilly Auto Parts.
