Welcome to the World of Andrew Johnston

A "Broad Spectrum" Architect

Professional Zone

An independent consultant with a unique combination of managerial, commercial and technical skills, I specialise in the development of strategies and technical architectures which allow businesses to get the maximum benefit from their IT resources.

I have been described by clients as a "broad spectrum" architect, summarising my ability to engage in many problems at many levels.

As well as practicing software architecture, I am also enthusiastic about developing the discipline, the people within it, and the way it is used. See my papers on software architecture and related matters and the AgileArchitect.Org website, dedicated to the practice of software architecture following the best principles of agile development.

My blog, Thoughts on the World, regularly covers technical topics, including architecture, agile development, design, technology and professional book reviews.

Photography Zone

I've always had a strong interest in photography, both as a practical tool to record our experiences in life, and as an art form. Have a look at the Photography Zone - my gallery and a growing collection of articles, tips, utilities and thoughts on photography in general.

You can also follow my photo blog, or have a look at my book reviews on Photography and Photographers

I combine my love of photography with a love of travel, recently visiting and making images in a number of wonderful locations incuding Bhutan, Cuba, Morocco and Iceland. For more details, please visit my travel page or have a look at one of my travel blogs:

If you don't know whether my photography's the thing for you, why not have a quick look at my "Tenset" - ten of my favourite shots, which between them give you some idea of my preferred subjects and style.
