General Journalism

One of the biggest joys of being a writer are the people and stories you discover. Often these fall far from the usual beat and are all the better for it. Subjects have ranged from Jewish refugees escaping Nazi Europe, to Japanese houses and have included such novelties as visits to factories making heavy machinery.


Mark Andrews can provide travel related photography of various Asian countries along with images from some other regions of the world. In addition he has a large library related to cars in China.


In a world of communication noise, getting your company’s message across is becoming increasingly difficult, that is why you need to call in experts. Mark Andrews studied marketing at university and has helped companies such as Lancôme, Geely, Lincoln, AXA-Minmetals, Lenzing, BuroHappold, Schuco, and Kone with diverse needs including press releases, speeches, advertorials, website content and internal magazine articles.


I commissioned Mark to do several stories when I was the Editor-in-Chief of Vacations & Travel magazine and was delighted by the calibre of both his photography and his writing. Mark has a wonderful knack of getting to the heart of a destination, and is able to weave together all the elements with great skill.
Should I have the opportunity to commission him again, I would have no hesitation.
