Jimmy Andruszkewicz, Cuba, 2023Jimmy Andruszkewicz (Jimmy A-Z) is a Landscape/Street Photographer, who also provides services in digital photo instruction and printing.

After graduating from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts’ Photography Program, Jimmy was fortunate to work as Studio Manager/First Assist for the eminent photographer Neal Slavin. Neal’s tutelage provided a firm foundation for large productions carried out both in studio and on the road, employing all camera formats from 35mm up to Polaroid’s 20×24 camera.

He eventually moved on to work as a Civilian Photographer in the Photographic Section of the New York City Police Department, which encompassed both field assignments and darkroom responsibilities. During this time, he joined the uniformed ranks of the NYPD. After the obligatory time in the street, he was able to return to the Photo Section as a Police Officer.

It was while in the NYPD that Jimmy began computer training, leading to a wide knowledge of digital editing and website construction. He also qualified as a Uniformed Peer Counselor through extensive training with the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF). This experience proved quite valuable while assigned to the Department’s Early Intervention Unit; especially in the aftermath of the attack on the World Trade Center on 09/11/2001. He retired after 25 years with the rank of Sergeant.

Jimmy has now settled into a rural life in Central Florida. He shares his life with his husband, Brian, as they restore the family farm.
