He has been using both Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom since their very beginnings as part of his work in both design and photography. Andy remembers clearly the day he saw one of the very first Lightroom demonstrations prior to its official release. Instinctively he knew that here was revolutionary software created by photographers for photographers, bringing well established darkroom principles to the digital era.
