Meet Andy Shigekawa

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andy Shigekawa.

Andy, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve had an interest in photography since childhood, using my Kodak Pocket Instamatic to capture memories and vacations, but in my adult life, I’ve identified with being a musician. I started playing the guitar in my teens and have pursued music as a singer-songwriter and jazz musician; and more recently, as a worship leader in my church.

Photography is a passion that has been percolating over the last few years. I started by doing macro photography which led to freelance product photography work. Within the last year, my interest has turned to shooting landscapes and urban settings. There is never a shortage of locations to see in southern California, and I enjoy exploring and capturing images of Los Angeles and beyond.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I work full-time as a school teacher, I’m married, and I serve at my church. It can be a challenge for me to carve out the time to pursue my photography and my music, but I’m thankful for the opportunities that I do have.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I specialize in macro, landscape and urban photography. I am available for product photography work.

I have done the majority of the photography for TEC Accessories Inc. and also for a small publishing company.

In regards to music, I currently have two albums available on iTunes. My music can also be found on Pandora, Spotify and other online music services.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I can’t say that I believe in luck, but I know that I’ve been blessed with the God-given abilities in this life to pursue my passions of music and photography.
