Andy Burns

“Night time and Lowlight Photography”

“I have been interested in photography since my early teens when I was given a camera as a birthday present. Over the years I found that it was a hobby that I picked up and put down depending on time, family and work commitments. However, I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to train professionally as a forensic photographer and to work in that role for almost 20 years. Now in semi retirement I have the time to follow my own interests which include landscape,
architectural and night time photography.”
National Police Photographer of the Year – 2004
Associateship – BIPP (forensic)
