Hello and welcome.
Andrew lives in a small coastal village in the scenic Morayshire of Scotland. Growing up in Galashiels in the Scottish Borders with his family like many children of his age he always dreamed of following in dad's footsteps as a bus driver and spent as much of his time on the buses with his dad when not in school travelling across the Scottish Borders and beyond to Carlisle in the south and north to Edinburgh. This where the interest in Buses began and with his first camera one birthday seen photos of buses start. "My photos were not great looking at them now or the ones I've kept but we all start somewhere and this interest never left"
Andrew is here to show you his work from behind the lens. His collection spans from The Scottish Borders, Edinburgh and north into the Highlands over the east looking at Aberdeen not forgetting the Moray operations now his home area. Andrew's main areas of interest in Scotland most of it he has yet to explore to family holidays in London, and the European tour coaches that visit the uk. Andrew's eye for detail can be seen across the website in his photography no matter the company or where he is. "I don't like showing people what I don't like myself it's that simple it has to be right for me to be seen by you just ask my friends"
On your journey through Andrew's Bus Stop you will find many bus & coach companies like Stagecoach, First Group, Lothian Buses. For Andrew a open day back in 2007 at his local coach company gave him the chance to meet and has since made friends with Kevin Mayne & the Mayne team at the Buckie depot located only two miles from Andrew's home has made it possible to show the images of Maynes Coaches you see today at the depot from new to old with thanks to Kevin. Maynes have also used some of Andrew's work for various social network material & the company website.
Andrew has had several images in publication including Stagecoach in BUSES Magazine by Ian Allan and Key Publishing. You may recognise Andrew for some of his best work when he was asked to help with some Images for Maynes Coaches to be included in The Mayne Way article for Coach & Bus Week (CBW) Issue No. 1153 and his most recentl Sheil Buses newest coach as The Big Picture featured in Coach & Bus Week (CBW) Issue No. 1196. For more details on Andrew's Publications please go to the News Section where a list of published images can be found. Andrew has many friends in the bus industry and has made friends with some of the stagecoach drivers he used to get to college and share interest in buses so can often be seen out catching them on the road if not helping Maynes with further photos for different things including a recent charity calendar.
"If it wasn't for my mum & dad for encouraging me to take photos when I was young I wouldn't be here to show you what I do today"
