Andy Woodward

Who are you and what did you do?

Hello! My name is Andy Woodward and I am an adventure photographer and filmmaker. Throughout my life, no one activity could ever fully capture me. From skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding, to climbing, slacklining, and paragliding, I enjoyed just about anything rooted in the outdoors – that is at least until I was introduced to a camera. Photography allowed me to connect these sports with a passion so grand I chose to center my career on it. I now study Photography and Business Marketing at Montana State University where I simultaneously work for REI, Outside Bozeman Magazine, Benshi Creative, and TOFU.

How is your workspace set up?

I have a window facing desk with a laptop and hard drives on top. Its a very simple space, but it allows me the flexibility of facilitating whatever it is I am working on. Currently I am producing a printed magazine, so my space is covered in draft pages, sticky notes, and magazine inspiration.

What does your typical day look like?

I am full-time student, work part-time, have a lot of hobbies, and work on passion projects (film and photo) every other minute I have. Consequently my days are both full and also very different from the last. I work best at night so I am usually up pretty late. I typically prioritize by daily checklist by academics, passion, work, hobbies (sometimes passion over all else).
