Nancy Andrews

Working for The Ford Model Agency, Nancy Lee Andrews modeled in New York with some of the greatest photographers of the 1960s and 1970s. They included Richard Avedon, Dick Ballerian, Bert Stern, Irving Penn and Gordon Munro, but it was Milton Greene who recognized that she had a burning desire to click the shutter. \u0022He handed me a Nikon camera and said, 'Try it and see what happens',\u0022 Andrews recalls. \u0022From that roll of film onwards, I was hooked on the process of capturing the constantly changing moment. People are the most fascinating subjects on earth and I have loved photography ever since.\u0022 Thus begun her career on the other side of the camera. Encouraged by former Beatle Ringo Starr, with whom she shared her life through the 1970s, Andrews began shooting fashion for designer boutiques along Rodeo Drive and trendy Melrose Avenue. Later she shot Ringo's publicity photos and has to her credit two of his albums - Ringo the 4th and Bad Boy. During this time she also snapped legendary artists such as George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, The Band, Keith Moon, Carl Perkins, Bernie Taupin, Gregg and Duane Allman, Leon Russell, Donovan, Hoyt Axton, Harry Nilsson, Dolly Parton, Carly Simon... to name a few. She now resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
