Andrew Campbell is a Grand Master of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography and a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography. He has been a professional photographer since 1983, but his obsession with astrophotography began in 2012 when a friend gave him an old Newtonian telescope. Andrew was immediately intrigued by the possibility of attaching a camera and photographing the heavens.
Andrew recently upgraded all his Astrophotography equipment and the quest continues. In 2015 Andrew won the Deep Sky Section of the Prestigious CWAS “David Malin Awards”, Australia’s premier astrophotography competition judged by the world renowned Astrophotographer David Malin himself. Andrew was also named the 2015 & 2016 AIPP Australian Science Wildlife and Wild Places Photographer of the Year and the AIPP Victorian Science Photographer of the Year in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
