Born and raised in a small town in upstate New York, Andrew D. Wheeler has been taking photographs since he was old enough to hold a camera. He is self-taught and loves pushing the boundaries of both the camera and post processing. Andrew specializes in 32bit High Dynamic Range photography as he feels it allows him better control over the available light in a given scene. His process is dedicated to not only replicating the scene but conveying the mood of the shot to the viewer. While he does not consider himself an explorer he does love the adventure in finding beauty and art in generally unseen places, places off the beaten path, uncovering the hidden beauty that lies within.
