Hi, I am Andy Bodemer

I live in Texas.

I'm a versatile photographer. My commercial work is focused on headshots, graduation photos, and product photography. If you're interested in booking a shoot or collaborating on a creative project, reach out!

It's Me

Realism and Authenticity*

I make sure that my portrait subjects look their best. I remove blemishes, redness, and other imperfections, while keeping skin texture. And tend to avoid trendy editing styles. But when I'm doing art, well, anything goes.

*I'm not sure what realism really is or what it means to be truly authentic. But I know these elements are important. And something that is real or authentic usually becomes more meaningful or valuable as years pass.

How it began

I started photography when I bought a DSLR on an impulse and started walking through my neighborhood in Seattle.

I had no idea what I was doing.

But I loved it.

And I kept going.

I fell in love with film

As I started to learn about photography and photo editing, I started to notice more. Then one day a photo jumped out at me online. There was something about the colors (and tones). I learned that it was 35mm film. I was hooked.

Analog film photography has been a major influence on my editing style.

(Really, it was a emulation of Fuji Superia on a Fuji digital camera, but close enough.)

Always Changing

I'm always looking for ways to appreciate life and improve my craft. I'm especially interested in how I can bring value and new perspectives.

The best thing an artist or a craftsperson can do is bring value to people. For a photographer, that means taking meaningful pictures, recording memories, capturing a person's image that is an honest reflection of who they are, and maybe even showing a person a facet of their personality that they haven't realized.
