Andrej grew up with photography, spending much time in his father’s dark room. Surrounded by the Royal Ballet’s supremely talented dancers on a daily basis and drawn to capture their artistry both on and off stage, he discovered his own passion for photography. His photographs can be seen in Royal Opera House programmes as well as national magazines and newspapers.
