Amanda is a London based filmmaker and photographer
Amanda's diverse visual storytelling background started by studying cinematography at The Arts Institute, Bournemouth and was supplemented with practical experience, camera-operating on food-based factual television, music videos and short films. Following a period specialising in food photography, she developed her editing and directing skills, which have enabled her to work successfully as an autonomous filmmaker.
Amanda focuses on producing short-form film content and her client list includes crafts people, non-profit organisations, restaurants and small businesses. In amongst a body of work that includes live performance videos, promotional films and online training courses, her series of craft films have been exhibited in London, while a food and beverage promotional video is currently showing during trailers at a well-known art house cinema.
Within photography, Amanda continues to shoot food, as well as portraits and lifestyle and has worked for a variety of major media outlets, PR agencies and the hospitality industry. Amanda is also a contributing photographer to StockFood, a specialist food and drink stock agency.
Documentary has also inevitably found its way into her photography work.
Amanda provided photography to support the documentary, 100 Women I Know, an award-winning short documentary film comprised of intimate interviews with four rape survivors, directed by Phoebe Montague. Subsequently a book was published of the same name, containing real stories of rape and assault, drawn from data collected as research for the film and included a number of Amanda's portrait photos.
