Take Five with Andy Spain

Andy Spain is a freelance photographer undertaking commissions for architects and other clients across New Zealand.   

He has worked with blue chip companies like BT & Native Land and numerous architectural practices including HLM, Fielden and Mawson, AD Architects, Coda and Steffian Bradley.  

Andy also undertakes personal projects for exhibition and sale, most recently 'Ecocities' which was featured in the Telegraph and Evening Standard and 'Suburbia' which was shown at Photomonth.  

In your professional life, what is the single best thing about what you do? 
I wanted to be a photographer from a very young age so just doing what I do for a living is constantly enjoyable even if I sometimes need to remind myself. 

Do you have a creative hero / heroine and if so, why? 
I don't have a creative hero as such. There are many people you meet who inspire you. I met another architectural photographer recently who does fine art work (a direction I would like to go in) - 20 minutes talking to him was great.   

What piece of advice do you wish you had been given at the beginning of your career? 
You don't know it all yet, you never will know it all, just get on and do it and you'll learn (your craft and your business)   

If you hit a creative block, what is your top tip for getting through it? 
Just do it, some days you fly, other days are hard. Don't let the hard days blind you into thinking it's always going to be like that.   

And finally, for fun, if you were a shoe, what type of shoe would you be and why? 
It has to be my pair of Reef flop flops I got in New Zealand years ago, if I've got them on then the sun is shining and life is good.
