about andermahr photography
I am an enthusiastic, unusual and experienced photographer, at that stage in my life where photography has become a full-time commitment. My work reflects an eye that plays with pattern, design, simplicity, impact and often the unexpected, specialising in architectural photography.
I have exhibited locally and abroad and has won numerous awards including Sienna Photographic Award (Italy), Travel Photographer Society (Malaysia)) and SA AIPP 2017 Emerging Photographer of the Year.
Born in Jutland, Denmark, my education and artistic development happened in Adelaide, South Australia, originally training as an art teacher at the South Australian School of Art and Western Teachers College. Since then, I have extended my tertiary qualifications in Photo Imaging, Graphic Design and a Post Graduate in Photography (UnisSA).
I am an enthusiastic volunteer Public Guide and educator at the Art Gallery of South Australia and is a hopeless lover of Great Danes, having owned them for many years.
