When you want to solve a problem, you must break it apart and see why it exists. I have found we don’t see clarity until we seek simplicity. Naturally intuitive and innovative, I help people solve problems. In 2008, I wanted to speed up my marketing education so I began freelancing and consulting while enrolled at UAH and working for Apple, Inc. My experience has led me to consult as a creative director, designer, photographic imaging expert, business manager, marketing strategist, and an acquisition advisor. The evolution of this experience focused my energy into being recruited to develop a new program for a US Army laboratory to centralize and standardize metrology operations. Through practical projects at UAH, researching in England, living and traveling abroad, photographing internationally, documenting technical testing environments, founding my own company, and helping others start programs, I honed my abilities as a diversely capable strategist living for the launch.
Fine Art Biography
Andrew Hall studied Photography at The University of Alabama in Huntsville, where he worked under the 35mm half-frame photographer and Cyanotype image-maker, José Betancourt. During this time he developed into an international event and fine art photographer with an emphasis on documentary, commercial, and lifestyle images. Andrew is drawn to the raw emotions others sometime tend to ignore. As an artist with an initial background in engineering and science, Andrew seeks to find these moments in places where science blends with art.
Since 2011, Andrew has been photographing across The United States and the Pacific Region making documentaries and covering events. These experiences allowed him to observe different cultures which lead to a series documenting the use of natural resources through large scale and hype-detail perspectives. In his studies at UAH, Andrew learned of a phenomena of visual image processing, persistence of vision: the optical illusion where multiple images or parts of an image blend into one cohesive image in the mind. It is through this illusion in his printing style Andrew intends to slow down a viewer’s observation to spend more time analyzing the image.
From the far pacific to the Tennessee Valley, Andrew continues to document these contrasting scenes. His style is influenced by the works of Andreas Gursky, Jeff Wall, Cindy Sherman, Sally Mann, Stephen Alvarez, and José Betancourt.
