Photographer since 1970. Has been in these major fields of photography; commercial, medical, scientific, portrait, photo-journalism. His other abilities include graphic design, writing, lectures on photography, and amusing his friends by inserting foot in mouth when least expected; he has designed ads, brochures, business cards, etc., written articles and stories, given talks on his adventures in photography and provided photo lessons to those who ask. The major portion of his career has been as a commercial, portrait/wedding, and photo-journalist photographer. He is also a Mac geek of sorts, but never seems to learn enough to satisfy his curious nature.
He has traveled the United States, in his younger days, on the strength of his thumb. Towle has also lived in Europe, but prefers the US. He settled in Arizona in 1992 and has no plans to leave, except to travel to other places around this country. He is currently writing a book about his different careers and where that has taken him and plans to begin a GPS website about...well, that's still a secret.
He likes to take long walks, with camera in hand and capture those fleeting early morning moments of fantastic light before the sun rises, and sometimes during and after, but those moments are unique, rare and special. Ah, 'Before the Sun Rises' could be a name of his current book in the works, but it isn't.
He enjoys the company of close friends and the excellent and lively conversation they bring to the table. Of course, he is always observing people, and the follies of man, no matter how inane or brilliant.
He has won a fair amount of awards from the Arizona Newspaper Association (17 or 18, but who's counting?) for his photographic efforts and continues to push that shutter to capture that fleeting 'decisive moment'. Thank you, Henri Cartier-Bresson, for the enlightenment. You might visit www.AndysFrame.com and view Andy's latest escapades.
I set out to get a quick shot of Rim Country Middle School Resource Officer Michael Hansen impressing students with his bullet-proof vest and air of authority — but these days you never know what you’ll find when you actually get inside a classroom.
I’m a certified curmudgeon, one of those grouchy people you cross the street to avoid. But somehow my editor keeps sending me off on articles that are supposed to melt my heart. Ha, good luck with that.
