A little bit about my journey into photography...

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. 

Like lots of mumpreneurs, I’ve faced many challenges juggling the running of my business activities, running a home, family commitments and I still do but it’s all worth it as I love being my own boss! It’s been an amazing journey so far and I feel privileged to have worked with some wonderful clients, business owners and suppliers who continue to support my business.

I’m looking forward to working with more clients this year on their Family Photography Experiences and Commercial Photo Shoots and having founded Derbyshire’s new Women Entrepreneurs Network called MOTUS in January 2017, I’m really looking forward to connecting with and supporting more women entrepreneurs through our Energising Netwalks, Fun Social Evenings and Specialist Masterclasses.
