Andrae Ingram Headshot


Andrae started doing photography a few years ago after he joined the video team at his church (Zion Troy) and shortly after became the camera operator for Sunday services. After learning the camera, he was intrigued to learn more and had the opportunity to do so during an internship, which allowed him to learn in more depth about videography, photography, and editing. His love and passion for photography/videography are what drive him to create more, not just for him but for others as well.
