This is the website of Andrew D. Brosig Photography. I'm a professional photojournalist, artist and writer. I grew up in farm country in the community of Newton in Central Iowa and attended the University of Iowa where I studied photojournalism and fine art.
My camera has taken me around the country, where it's been my honor to share in the lives of thousands of people, in all walks of life. Here are a few of my favorite images (for now). Thanks for looking and check back for regular updates and additions. I've worked as a freelance stringer for The Associated Press since 2000 and my work has appeared in hundreds of publications around the world, including the Virginia Pilot, USA Today, Chicago Tribune and more.

The Analog Project
The Analog Project started in September 2013 when I was looking for a way to revitalize my vision. I'd been capturing digital images almost exclusively for several years and, while I think I was producing good work, it wasn't meeting a need deep inside me to return to my creative roots. Digital imaging had become, in some ways, more technology than technique.
I started off with a box of out-dated 35mm film and a 1970s-vintage Nikkormat EL camera which had belonged to my father, who got me started on this path in photography. It soon morphed into shooting with a variety of rangefinder cameras — including several manufactured in the Former Soviet Union — medium format cameras and a host of others, all from my extensive camera collection.
The Analog Project resulted in a book (Available on Amazon.com) and monthly features in The Daily Sentinel of Nacogdoches, Texas, where I was Photo Editor. More importantly, The Analog Project has resulted in a new outlook on photography, taking me back to the days of my youth when photography meant taking time and care, without the instant gratification which typifies so much of our world today.
