Raised in England by Polish parents, Andrzej Liguz decided when he was a teenager that he wanted to explore the world. He subsequently lived in Holland, Berlin, Greece and Australia before moving to NYC 5 years ago.
He found his first camera at a bus stop when he was 24 and decided at 27 to prove it possible to make a living from photography within one year never having done it before. He succeeded and now shoots portrait, reportage/lifestyle and fashion images for a variety of advertising, commercial, music and editorial clients around the world.
Andrzej is equally comfortable in a studio or on location, believing that it’s possible to find 6 interesting locations within 50 yards of any given spot. He works fast and enjoys constructing contexts and illusions in-camera that appear to be computer manipulated. He has traveled on photographic assignments to Germany, France, England, Ireland, Mexico, Thailand, Canada and throughout the US.
Some of his subjects have included musicians Bjork, Jeff Buckley and Midnight Oil; actors Geoffrey Rush and Jeremy Sisto; General Motors VP of Global Design Ed Welburn and Deloitte Haskins CEO Barry Salzberg; three time World Boxing Champion Jeff Fenech as well as a variety of other athletes, politicians, actors, artists and entrepreneurs.
