Andres Gonzalez was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and developed an interest in photography after working as a Marketing Specialist for Adobe Systems, Inc., sharing activities with amazing designers, photographers and editors.

After studying Advertising and working for numerous software companies in his home town of Venezuela, Andres moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. There, he started his career by photographing landscapes in some of the most amazing National Parks in the country including Yellowstone, Monument Valley and Grand Teton, among others. But it was not until he moved to South Beach in 2001, when he was inspired by Miami Model Agencies to devote his career to Fashion Photography. Andres went on to develop an extensive portfolio of work living in Miami, traveling to Venezuela, New York, Hong Kong and Las Vegas.

Andres Gonzalez worked as a casting director for the commercial agency Lenz Talent in Las Vegas for more than four years developing portfolios of "new faces" for renowned talent agencies around the world, including Elite Miami, Salute Models in Asia and Mariela+Tibi Model management in Venezuela. Andres shares his passion for fashion by also shooting red carpet events, soap opera stars and beauty queens. Miss Universe & Miss USA are two of his favorite events working as a press photographer.

After ten years as a photographer, Andres went back to school and accomplished his goal to become a Public Administrator at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. After many years supporting diverse community causes, he founded his own non-profit, "Fashion For A Cause" and has raised thousands of dollars for several organizations in Nevada. He has supported Blind children, Leukemia and Lymphoma Research, Breast Cancer Research, Environmental Projects, Minority Business and Animal foundations.

Today, more than one-hundred fashion professionals have donated their time for "Fashion For A Cause" supporting many different projects. Andres continues to work hard to help more foundations while also sharing his responsibilities for other non-profits such as Outreach Director for "C.A.R.E." and Event Director for "Shield of Hope".

Fashion and Charity is the motto for photographer Andres Gonzalez. He currently lives in Las Vegas, NV, where he has a one-thousand square foot studio and spends his spare time with his beloved Golden Retriever, Bella. He is best known for his ability to deeply connect with aspiring models and emerging artists.
