My Name is Andrew Jack Noland and i am a Filmmaker & Photographer from Austria. I was born 1990 in „Bruck/Mur“ and i grew up in the Province called „Styria“. My Parents are originally from Romania, but in 1989 they decided to move to Austria.
I went like everyone to the Kindergarten, Elementary School, Secondary School and High School. With 16 i decided to start working.
In those days, i didn’t know what i wanted to become. So i started to work as a Chef apprentice in a Restaurant. After 2 Years i stopped because it wasn’t really my Passion. After that i had for another 3 Years small Jobs, just because i had to work. I stopped with all of them because it wasn’t my Passion. At this time i was lost in my life, so i decided to travel, with the Goal to finding myself…
I decided to go to south africa. This time was magical. I met a lot of warm hearted and great people, with their own great Life stories. I learned a lot about me, about us, i learned a lot about life.
South Africa showed me something that i call „The Art of Life“. Everyone there like to paint and to travel. I got inspired by this Colors and all the wonderful Places i have traveled. I got inspired by the people i met. I learned to feel this Rhythm of Life.
In the end i was ready for this Change.
With the Inspiration in my Heart i returned back to austria, ready to start my new Way of life.
After a view Weeks i got the Chance to study Filmmaking in the „Styrian Web TV“. I graduated as a Film Editor with honors. After that i started to work in some of austrians Televisions to gain Experience. In the same time i founded my own film production.
After building up my own business and working hard for the Television in the same time, i started to miss something. Working as a Filmmaker was just one part of my story. The second Part was traveling.
The Free Spirit
In 2017 i decided to sell everything i had, except my camera, just to be independent. With my new plan to combine filmmaking and traveling, i booked my flight to thailand. This was also the moment where i started with my Youtube Channel and Instagram.
Maybe it was just because of Thailand, or because i was happy to travel again, but in the end i started to take this amazing Pictures about my travels and it really felt like Home. There i discovered my third passion, the Photography.
I had some nice Photography Projects during my time in Thailand, where i learned a lot about it. After spending 6 Months in Thailand i decided to go back to europe just to planning my next Trip.
Who I m? I m a Filmmaker, Photographer and Traveler, with my whole Heart.
I m Andrew Jack Noland.
See you around!
