Andrew Meilstrup is a landscape and studio photographer, designer, and science fiction author. Born in 1988 in Gloucester and raised in the Desert Southwest, Andrew is a lifelong science and technology buff.
Andrew's passion is for the landscape. Raised in the harsh, arid landscape of the Southwest, he first picked up a camera in the comparatively exotic landscapes of Alaska and the Yukon and Northwest Territories of Canada. Andrew graduated from the Santa Fe Community College with an Associate of Arts degree in Photography.
Andrew's work in the landscape relies less on a landscape's grandeur and is instead subject-oriented and intimate. He revisits a scene as often as possible, often in the margins of the light, to arrive at an image that best exemplifies that landscape’s true nature.
Andrew is just as much at home in the studio, making his own light rather than relying on the light of the moment.
He lives in Santa Fe, NM with his partner and his stepson.
