Cannes Lions is a global advertising festival where 12,000 people from 94 countries come together to be inspired by seven unmissable days of learning, networking and celebration.

And Getty Images will be there to #RePicture the world both in the Ortega space in the Palais and around the festival.

In partnership with Samsung, we’ve let some of our senior creative team out and about with the new Samsung Galaxy K-Zoom to #RePicture Cannes.

Andrew Saunders, Senior Vice President, Creative at Getty Images.

Andrew leads a global team of art directors, editors and creative researchers who are focused on guiding and curating imagery that fulfills the needs of advertising, corporate and new media clients across the world.

Through his un-paralleled experience at Getty Images, he has a unique perspective on the successive and dramatic changes in the way pictures are created and used in the global marketplace.

While he trained as a photographer, Andrew's particular expertise lies in being able to apply the trends that he and his team see in advertising and in society, to the forging of the next generation of photography. 

Over the years the content team at Getty Images have won countless awards in the worlds most prestigious advertising and photography competitions.

Before joining Tony Stone Images and Getty Images Andrew worked as a commercial photographer. He lives with his partner and three children in North London.

Andrew remembers his first camera

"I studied photography in college and the first camera I used on that course was a Rolleiflex square format camera. Many photographers will tell you that their favourite roll of film was the first one they shot, because there is a naivety from having no preconceptions about framing rules, shooting angles or composition…. it's just you and the subject matter. That was the same for me, when I look back at that first roll of film I wonder if all the training afterward just got in the way."
