My love of ‘all things photography’ started back in the 80’s when I bought my first Nikon SLR camera and studied photography at college in the days of film and dark room processing.
My passion back then was ‘travel photography’ and managed to do quite a lot travelling to different parts of the world, documenting my experiences on film and slides. As someone who always had their camera with them wherever they went, always looking to capture the very essence of where I was and its people, I knew that photography was more than just a hobby… I had a real passion for capturing those moments in time that I knew I’d never see again.
Reaching 40 was a significant turning point in my life when I decided that I wanted to set up my own photography business, having thought about it for a while, it was time to take that leap of faith!
So in October 2012, Amanda McConnell Photography was launched specialising in Family Portraits, Business Headshots and Commercial Photography Derbyshire.
