Andrew O'Brien was born in Oldham England, and came to Canada with his parents as a young boy. He now resides in the small West-Central Alberta town of Sundre, where he lives with his wife and raised his two daughters.
Andrew's love of the outdoors is highlighted in many of his images, often captured while hiking and backpacking in the majestic rocky mountains only a short distance away. Andrew also has a soft spot for abandoned houses, cars and beautiful rural scenery
Many have commented on how Andrew's unique blend of composition, subject matter and processing makes them feel like they are really part of the scene they are enjoying, evoking emotion and memories. To have someone gaze quietly at one of his pictures for minutes, then turn and say " | need to take that home with me" is a truly satisfying feeling.
