Andrea Gentl and Martin Hyers are the New York based directing and photography duo Gentl and Hyers. Tenured and deeply experienced through twenty-five years of shared life and creativity, their exceptional talent has allowed them to capture and collaborate with the world’s leading tastemakers, chefs, and culinary pioneers.
They met while studying photography at Parsons School of Design and have been together, in life and work, ever since. Best known for signature light, hard shadows and thoughtful compositions, their imagery tells a district story, entirely their own. They find everlasting inspiration in their explorations and adventures and are happiest when wandering in a far-off land, camera in hand, connecting with people.
Gentl and Hyers have directed and photographed for countless brands, editorials, and advertising clients. Their undeniable talent and rigorous work ethic has paved the way for opportunities to shoot a wide range of campaigns and projects, spanning across the categories of still life, food, drinks, interiors, beauty, and travel.
In Spring of 2022, Andrea Gentl wrote and photographed her first ever cookbook, Cooking With Mushrooms, published by Artisan. Written through the lens of Gentl’s personal approach to foraging and cooking, the book was released to critical acclaim, winning numerous accolades and awards including Bon Appétit’s Best Cookbook of 2022.
