At 14 years old, Amanda Aitken was working in the photo lab printing, selling cameras and hobby shooting in the days of film. A great foundation to learn the technical aspects of light and colour. After 8 years in labs, Amanda moved to London and began her career as a professional photographer. Her role as Head Photographer had her in charge of a large team, responsible for their creative performance and looking after high profile clients for a marketing firm.
Fast-forward to today, Amanda is back home in New Zealand living her dream shooting architecture, interiors and a range of advertising work - including industrial, corporate and lifestyle. After 13 years in business, Amanda has the same passion and drive for interpreting her subject in the most creative and inspirational way.
Video is a service that Amanda and her assistant, Theresa, work together on to create productions of any size. If a larger-scale production is needed, a close network of specialised producers, directors, etc., are co-ordinated depending on the client's needs.
Amanda’s warm personality and calm manner compliment the efficiency and professionalism of her work. Whether in collaboration or on her own accord, she is focused on detail, perfection and achieving a result that is unsurpassed, and exceed expectations.
On a personal level, Amanda enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 daughters. With a history of diving in Egypt, swimming with Great Whites in South Africa (and generally travelling the world), Amanda is tougher than she looks and is no stranger to adventure.
