Andrew Macpherson was born in London. He fell in love with photography at thirteen and left school at fifteen to pursue his chosen career. He assisted the legendary photographers Bob Carlos Clarke, Horst.P.Horst and Lord Snowdon. At twenty-three he became a photographer, shooting fashion for The Face, Elle, Bazaar and Vogue.

Two Million Miles, published in 2006, was a compilation of his favorite images spanning his first twenty years in the business. 10 Years With P!nk, published in 2014, showcases the images he and P!nk have collaborated on over the previous ten years. In 2015 he also published his first non-photography book, A Question of Spirit, which is a personal exploration into the nature of both Spirit and the reality we live in. In 2018 he published Chasing Ansel Adams to coincide with the exhibition of the same name at the ArcaneSpace Gallery in Venice, California.
