My name is Andy Eaves and I am a professional photographer and web designer. I started building websites sometime around 1998 when the internet as we know it was in its infancy and very few photographers had a website. I bought a book called ‘How to build a website in a weekend’ and sure enough, 2 or 3 months later I had my first website. It was pretty poor in all honesty but I persevered and after a while I got the hang of it! After that I built a site for a few friends and then some other photographers and I began to build a name for myself.
In the end I decided to actually create a name for myself, and so Layer was born. I now employ various specialists on an ‘as required’ basis but I still direct, oversee and usually design every project.
