About Andy Masuo
“I was born in New York City in 1964 and lived in big cities until I arrived in Austin in 1991. So given my background, I’m a city person at heart.
I love capturing urban life, especially in the evening. I seek color, the glow of lights, and reflections. I’ve grown into street photography because the city is more than just buildings. I aspire to capture the mundane in an interesting way.
As I travel to more cities worldwide, I continue to capture life on the streets. However, we can sometimes find the exotic in our hometown. Psychology matters most when we interact with people — more than gear and even photography skills.
I prefer smaller cameras to be less visible on the street, making international travel easier. I used Olympus micro 4/3 cameras for years and moved to Fujifilm. I recently purchased a Sony A7C, an unexpectedly compact full-frame camera.“

Member Photo Share: “Texas Our Texas.
Pictures could include anything from Spanish moss in fog at Caddo Lake to the Mule Ears peaks in Big Bend; from the Houston skyline to a cotton field in the Pan Handle; from sand dunes at Padre Island to the courthouse in Throckmorton. So think Texas and search your photos. – Bill Galloway
