Hi, my name is Andrew Rios and I am a photographer based in Denver Colorado.
I had always loved taking photos, but my interest truly sparked when I found an old Olympus OM-1 with a few lenses at a garage sale in Telluride. I met some of the right people bouncing around in the local music scene off Broadway Ave. in Denver and started photographing musicians. Since then I’ve been lucky enough to cover artists like ZZ Top, Sharon Jones, Greg Allman, Mavis Staples, Nathaniel Rateliff, Lil Wayne, Pretty Lights and many more. I have also had the chance to cover a few festivals like the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, Vertex, Telluride Jazz Fest and the Durango Blues Train.
I’ll always love this craft and I’m always looking for new opportunities to get behind the lens.
