Andrew Gilbert: Top 30 Under 30 in 2016



When I graduated university the last thing I could imagine was working in an office as an economist! My passion for capturing simple photographs has developed into a passion for capturing people and moments and I have been happy to call that my profession for the past 5 years. I have an unhealthy obsession with travel, coffee, and my best friend Erin. Together we are Photographik, wedding photographers based in Calgary, and are addicted to capturing real moments and the epic landscapes they happen in. I was honoured to win the top 30 under 30 award previously and am determined to to make it happen again in my final year of contention!

Tell us what your one must-have piece of gear is and why:

Hold Fast Money Maker! The save my back after a long wedding day but aside from that, the “style” compliments alone are worth it!



Tell us what your one must-have piece of software is and why:

Chimpadeedoo. Its an old app from Mailchimp, but it allows us to connect with everyone at the wedding. Its changed the way we shoot on a wedding day and really makes you think about the lasting impact of your photography on a wedding day.



What’s your advice for someone just starting out?

One tip I wish I knew starting out is to embrace your network. The photography community is so powerful and supportive, I wish I had the knowledge and expertise I have gained now from my network when I was first starting out.
