Andy Hayes

Photographer & Palette Community Manager

About Andy:

Since my first forays into digital photography, I’ve been as passionate about how I edit my images as to how I capture them. As a Community Manager for Palette, I use my experience as a photographer to help our users make faster, better-looking edits while gathering their feedback to help improve our product. My favourite subjects to shoot are architecture, landscapes, and food.

About Palette:

Palette is a system of magnetically connected sliders, dials, and buttons that offer photographers and other creatives a faster, more intuitive, and precise editing experience. Breaking the one-size-fits-all paradigm of keyboard and mouse, Palette allows creatives to fully customize the layout, function, and even colour of each module to optimize their editing workflow.
