Johnny Andrews is an American born photographer and multimedia journalist.
He spent fifteen years working as a staff photojournalist for several major newspapers in the United States from North Carolina to Florida and Missouri, winning numerous local and national awards along the way. Johnny has lectured to students at Lindenwood University, Webster University and Washington University in St. Louis on topics ranging from documentary photojournalism to multimedia and was named a Racial Justice Fellow by the University of Southern California’s Annenberg Institute for Justice and Journalism.
He also created and produced a year-long multimedia music video column for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch called the LISTEN series which profiled local musicians through documentary photography and film.
Despite the title of this particular page of the blog, Johnny is actually not a fan of that “Who’s Johnny?” El Debarge song nor the equally bad movie (Short Circuit) to which it was attached. Still, it was a pretty catchy song so you might find him involuntarily breaking out into a Carlton Banks-esque dance if he hears it. No promises, though.
When he isn’t making pictures, producing videos, mixing music or traveling, you can find Johnny cheering loudly for his hometown Atlanta teams and all things Carolina blue.
