ANDY H. TU
Discovering my artistic identity as a bay area photographer was a transformative journey. It began during my freshman year at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. As a young artist, I lacked confidence and often overworked my art. Thankfully, my professor, Henry Chan, offered invaluable guidance, teaching me to trust my instincts and embrace the beauty of imperfection.
Today, as a professional photographer and visual effects artist with over 20 years of experience in the creative industry, I specialize in personal branding photography, commercial photography, and fashion photography. I have collaborated with renowned publications like Maxim and Men's Health, as well as top brands like Fashion Nova and Nike.
Innovative Personal Branding and Commercial Photographer
My unique perspective on photography stems from my background in creative writing, copywriting, visual effects, and animation. I see every subject as an opportunity to create a character and tell a story. This passion for storytelling and world-building drives my work as a personal branding photographer and commercial photographer.
With a decade of experience, I have honed my craft capturing the beauty and strength of athletes and models. My ultimate goal is to build a comic universe called DangerGirl, blending photography, art technology, and the incredible people I've worked with into a captivating VR world.
Fashion Photographer: Merging 3D Art and Photography
As a fashion photographer, my background in creature development and 3D art allows me to elevate my images to new heights. I've developed a symbiotic relationship between photography and 3D work, resulting in a style that is both fun and different – a testament to my belief that photography and 3D art should work together to tell a story and create something truly unique.
