Andrew Eccles was born in England and grew up in Toronto, Canada. His family moved to Hawaii when he was twelve where he attended high school for two years before returning to Vancouver and graduating there. He spent three years at The Ontario College of Art followed by two years in Texas before eventually settling in New York City. It was there that he began to pursue photography seriously.
Within four months Andrew landed an apprenticeship with Annie Leibovitz lasting three years. That was followed by brief stints working alongside Robert Mapplethorpe and Steven Meisel.
In 1987, Andrew became a professional photographer himself and has been shooting celebrities, models, athletes, politicians, musicians, and dancers ever since.
Over the past 33 years his work has appeared on the covers of countless magazines worldwide. He has also created an abundance of Advertising images for the Film, Television, Broadway, and Music Industries for use domestically and abroad.
Throughout his career Andrew has received numerous awards from both the Society of Publication Designers and Communication Arts.
American Photography Magazine named Andrew One of the 100 Most Important People in the Industry in 1998 and his iconic portrait of Robin Williams for the cover of the New York Times Magazine taken in the year 2000 is housed in a time capsule installed behind the Museum of Natural History in New York City, not to be reopened until the year 3000.
