During April’s “Feeding Frenzy” at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in 2018, Roseate Spoonbills were pinching 1-4 year old alligators tails. Pinching the tail would cause the young alligators to scurry through the mud, kicking up food for the spoonbills to follow behind them and sweep up an easy bite. This one instance, a very young alligator wasn’t having it and whipped around to let the spoonbill know that was enough.
This was the moment that I truly fell in love with photography. After seeing the spoonbills in action during the “feeding Frenzy” in April of 2018, i was hooked.

What is a Limited Edition?
Limited Edition means that there will only ever be a pre-determined number of prints produced of each photograph. Once the edition sells out, there will never be another reprint of that photograph. Limited Editions come in multiple sizes ranging from 1-350 signed prints. Prints numbered 1-10 are artist reserves and will be released at the artists discretion once the edition has sold out.
With each Limited Edition image release, only 10 - 35 numbered and signed Artist Proofs are made available. These proofs are regarded as personal to the artist and therefore highly sought after by collectors.
Exclusive Editions are one-of-a-kind images that have been hand selected and signed by Andrew. They are considered to be among his most rare and valuable work. While Exclusive Editions are available to any collector, they are usually acquired by the most avid of enthusiasts.
Why does the price of the artwork change over time?
Limited Editions are produced in a pre-determined edition size. As the demand for one of Andrew’s Photographs goes up, so does the price. Collecting early guarantees you are also receiving the most competitive pricing available.
