What others in the industry are saying:

"A helluva photographer: an A-lister out of the UK. Drew makes some amazing photos, and has a wonderful sense of humour and whimsy that shows in his work. Drew's world is one of big lights and big ideas. I mean, when is the last time you rented a water buffalo for a shoot?"

- David Hobby, American photographer and lighting specialist | www.strobist.com


"Positively mad, not to mention brilliant. Drew is unstinting in dispensing his considerable knowledge, a genius at controlling huge shoots (fashion models and wild animals, what could go wrong?) and a hoot to boot"
