Andrew Propp is a freelance photographer based in Washington D.C.
A Washington D.C. native, Andrew shares a love for photography, all things airplane, and ice hockey. Born into a US foreign service family, Andrew has done his share of domestic and international traveling. For college, he headed westward to Washington state to major in History. While completing his degree, he began freelancing for the local newspaper in Walla Walla, WA, and documenting campus events in his spare hours. The fall after completing his degree, he attended the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, working on stories about 95-year-old apple pickers, professional hockey players, and penny-pinching flight instructors. With a new body of work, Andrew took a six month hiatus to travel, visiting Portugal, Belgium, Eastern Europe, Senegal, and South Africa.
In 2011, Andrew reestablished himself in the Washington D.C. area, predominantly working for local non-profit clients. One year later, he joined Washingtonian Magazine, serving as one of their staff photographers. Over his three year tenure, Andrew helped fill the pages of Washington’s leading city magazine, contributing photos of its rising food scene, producing photo essays on the city’s subcultures, and documenting local and non-local celebrities, such as Bei Bei the Baby Panda and Pope Frances. In 2016, he left his staff position to freelance full-time and currently works with a variety of editorial, commercial, and non-profit clients.
