It's fair to say that Andrew was more or less the inspiration for MBFD when we were looking for new models for The Full English back in 2009. Just aged forty-five when we first photographed him, this ex-policeman seemed to epitomise the British family man of yesteryear: constantly cheerful, loving and dependable. Even the 70's style moustache he has sported for most of his adult life recalls a bygone era when Daley Thompson, Nigel Mansell, even the classic OXO dad were our national heroes.
This kind gentle man talked so proudly and lovingly of his wife and his children, his church charity work, caring for his elderly mother and his passion for gardening that we felt compelled to ask him why on Earth he was looking for porn work. "To pay off my wife's extravagant credit card spending!" came the answer.
With his non-drinking, not-living-beyond-one's-means kind of Ned Flanders sensibilities we asked him what the local villagers might think if they discovered their pillar of the community was getting his pillar out for the community but he told us not to nanny him and that he was old enough to make his own decisions.
