Biography

Welcome to the epicenter of the Luke & Mandy universe. The renowned team have been published and exhibited across planet Earth. The UK based, married creative duo don't specialise in anything, just simply create art in any and every way their unique journey takes them. Not conformed to industry politics and rules, not scared to speak their mind and not afraid to go against the grain everyday. 

After knowing each other several years, in 2014 the stars aligned and Luke & Mandy went on a date. Quickly after meeting Luke started to photograph his model girlfriend. They adored the art they created together and decided to start their own series named 'Two Souls'. This quickly evolved into their own complete brand. The team constantly travel, having now visited over 10 countries they are constantly making photographs for brands and magazines, everywhere they go.

In 2016 the duo started partnering with Zeiss for photo shoots. They had always admired their lenses and view them as the best in the world. The relationship quickly evolved into a fully fledged ambassador role by early 2017.

As 2017 dawned, Luke & Mandy became Co Editor In Chief at Hungry Eye Journal, the renowned UK based Filmmaking and Photography publication which is distributed all around the globe.

In July 2017 Luke & Mandy are honoured to hold their first solo exhibition and one of the most exclusive venues in London, Grace Belgravia.

At the turn of 2018, the team became represented by After Nyne Gallery, an extremely high end art gallery in Kensington ,London. This quickly became a great relationship for both parties as Luke & Mandy’s artworks sold regularly through this prestigious outlet.

February of that year, they released their first book titled ‘2.5’ which celebrates the first 2.5 years of their creative journey together. Their debut book is comprised of 106 artworks and is for sale in select book shops across the UK including Waterstones and Hatchards, London’s oldest bookshop.

On March 25th, Luke & Mandy’s baby boy Milo Rane Woodford was born. He was a new inspiration for their journey to success. They were instantly dedicated to giving him the best life they possibly could.

2018 was also the year that a very close working relationship with Sony began. After being unhappy with the camera system they had used for years, Luke & Mandy decided to look into a new system to create their photographs with. Having gained a good knowledge of the industry whilst working with a publication, there was no doubt that Sony were the brand to choose. Shortly after using the Sony Alpha systems, Luke & Mandy were commissioned for an array of events for the iconic brand, including hosting a fashion shoot at their HQ for all of the UK’s photographic retailers and creating their art in front of thousands of people at The Photography Show.

In early 2019, Luke & Mandy expanded their representation, creating a relationship with Mallorca based Art company Leonards Art. The contemporary specialist's source art from emerging talent and established artists from around the world. Leonards Ar fell in love with the duo's works, along with their story, appreciating every part of their craft. Leonards Art represents works from artists including Richard Hambleton and Keith Haring. Very shortly after the relationship was established, Luke & Mandy’s rate of sales began to rise at an even more rapid rate.

2019 was arguably the year that life changed the most for Luke & Mandy. After falling in love with France on their first trip to the beautiful country in 2014, they decided to set up a family home in the region of Gers. They adore the quality of life that southern France brings, for them but more importantly, Milo. The life altering move meant it was time to walk away from the publications they had grown so fond of and focus on their art and guest house that they have on their property.

Continuing the craziness of 2019, Luke & Mandy launched a mental health charity called TALK (www.talkcharity.org).

Luke & Mandy sell their artworks to private buyers and luxury interior designers across the world. Locations include London, Paris, Dubai, Los Angeles and Miami.
