Amanda has always loved the power of photography and enjoys photographing her family and animals. She grew up in Northern Victoria where she enjoyed an idyllic childhood riding horses, playing and reading. Amanda completed a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) and Master of Arts at Melbourne University and also gained a teaching qualification. She worked as a senior English and History teacher in Northern Victoria schools before eventually moving to Deniliquin with her husband, Steve, a pharmacist. Amanda and Steve gradually expanded overtime and are now full-time farmers. They run a mixed farming property with a self-replacing Shorthorn herd. Amanda loves the creative licence of digital photography and employs it to highlight the value of Australian agriculture. She has edited work at tertiary level, has her own website and chairs the Deniliquin branch of the NSW Farmers’ Association.
