For twenty years Amanda has been photographing dogs exclusively for private and commercial clients across the United States. Her style is simple and elegant, highlighting each subject’s expressive features. Whether it’s a two hundred pound Bull Mastiff or a two pound Chihuahua, Amanda always gets the shot.
Amanda runs her studio with her husband and business partner, Chris. For the past ten years they’ve assembled teams in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles to create packaging and print advertising campaigns for some of the world’s most recognized pet brands: Pedigree, GoodLife Recipe, Eukanuba, Hills Science Diet, Safeway and Wegman’s.
Amanda maintains a busy US travel schedule that allows private clients in most major metropolitan areas access to her services. Although exhausting, she loves meeting new owners and pets every time she visits a different city. Her clients all share an infectious devotion to their pets that keeps Amanda’s and her subjects tail waggin’.
Amanda’s work has been featured in national publications including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Houston Chronicle, Bark Magazine and the German dog magazine, Dogs. She has appeared on several television shows including Good Morning America, The Early Show and San Francisco’s Evening Magazine. She has published four books of her photographs: Greyhounds Big and Small; Iggies and Greyts, Dachshunds Short and Long, Frenchie Kisses and A Breed Apart; a Celebration of the New American Mutts. Her new book, Dog Years, will be published by Chronicle Books in August, 2015.
She and her husband, Chris, work together from her studio in the northern part of Berkshire County, Massachusetts. It is located on the campus of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams, MA. She is devoted to her two dogs, Benny & Ladybug, and her cat, Ethel Mertz. And of course, her twelve year old daughter, Sophie.
