Amanda Collins Photography | About Amanda


At the age of 15, my father gave me my first 35mm camera.  He was the one to inspire me on my journey into a passion for photography.

After studying Art and for a while painting portraits for commission, I moved to Europe, then into a world of full time sales/customer service and raising a family, it left me little time to follow my dream of becoming a professional photographer.

Some 20 something years later, a loving husband (who is my assistant photographer at weddings), 3 grown up children, the passion has become my profession and feel very privileged to be doing a something I simply I adore.  I have a love for classical portraiture and this is reflected in my work, both for the client and personal projects. I believe in creating a piece of art for your wall for you to enjoy for many years to come.  

In 2013 I was awarded a Licentiateship by the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP).  A Licentiateship shows an established professional level of skill and competence, this was achieved in Portraiture.  I am also a member of the SWPP, so you can feel confident in the level of service you will receive.
