Commercial Photography by Andrew Eccles


Andrew Eccles grew up in Toronto then lived in Hawaii, Vancouver, and Texas before eventually settling in New York City. It was 1983 and this is where he decided to pursue photography seriously.

Within 3 months Andrew landed an apprenticeship with Annie Leibovitz lasting three years. That was followed by brief stints working alongside Robert Mapplethorpe and Steven Meisel.

In 1987, Andrew became a professional photographer himself and has been shooting celebrities, models, athletes, politicians, musicians, and dancers ever since.

Over the past 25 years his work has appeared on the covers of countless magazines worldwide. He has also created an abundance of advertising images for the film, television, Broadway, and music industries for use domestically and abroad.

Throughout his career Andrew has received numerous awards from both the Society of Publication Designers and Communication Arts.

American Photography Magazine named Andrew, “One of the 100 Most Important People in the Industry” in 1998 and his iconic portrait of Robin Williams for the cover of the New York Times Magazine taken in the year 2000 is housed in a time capsule installed behind the Museum of Natural History in New York City, not to be reopened until the year 3000.

Andrew’s first book Ailey Ascending, published in 2008, celebrates The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s 50th Anniversary and solidified Andrew’s longtime collaboration with the Company.

Andrew’s other longstanding relationship merges photography with his obsession for Ice Hockey. He has been photographing the New York Rangers for the past 12 years. However, no subject matter compares to Andrew’s favorite of all and love of his life, daughter Isabel.
