We had the good fortune of connecting with Andre F and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Andre, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
I have had to learn to be smart with my time. Especially with a schedule that is never really “set”. Learning how to balance work and my personal life has been an extremely important aspect. So far it has helped me a great deal to become a lot more responsible where and how I spend my time. I’m grateful I have a circle around me that ensures I get enough rest away from work.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I pride myself in my work ethic. I never stop at anything until it’s finished and perfected to my standards. I shoot for the galaxy!

I always tried to make moves that would benefit me in the long run. I have formed long lasting relationships with people that have been a great deal of help in supporting my work. Aside from that, I continue to still take the time to learn about my craft. I enjoy learning about the art of portrait photography!

It was from easy. Oh man, It still isn’t easy! But that’s what brings me joy; the never ending challenges. Thinking outside of the box is what helps me get through the hurdles I face! They can only make me stronger.

My business Never Ending Visions Photography has been a blessing. We have an unblemished character that strives for perfection. Check out our site!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Well he’s from LA too and is a little more knowledgeable about the spots! Haha. But if I had to choose we would definitely start off at LA Cafe! He put me on that spot and I loved it ever since! Thanks bro. There are several more iconic areas that we both hold near and dear to our hearts! From DTLA to LACMA to all the way to Beverly Hills! Crenshaw and Slauson is also definitely a place we would hit up for sure!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
First and foremost, I want to thank my mother for always being supportive when I doubted myself. That is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our relationship. I can’t thank her enough.

Next, I want to give a major and loving shoutout to my lady Tricia (@hellotrishh). She has been the true backbone in my artistic journey. She has given me an unconditional love that I have never experienced. It has been a tremendous experience watching each other grow as equal creatives. We started a photography business together that is thriving and continuing to flourishing. I could go on forever, but she knows the deal! I love you sweet pea!

Oh and I just want to give a random shoutout to my guy Sam (@hegotdacheatcodes) We’ve been friends for like 10 years. He makes beats so if any musical artists need any, hit him up!
