Amanda Vail started her photographic career by training in New York for three years. On her return to the UK she continued her studies, at the same time as working alongside a well known Vogue photographer and began to undertake her own commissions.

Working mainly in black & white, as Amanda feels it is a powerful and effective way to capture the essence of her subject. The use of natural light is essential in her work in both black & white and colour.

Over the past few years Amanda has developed a very strong identity and style, with an emphasis on the relaxed, informal and natural, at the same time as capturing the soul and individuality of the sitter. "Her innate ability to connect to people is evident in the fresh and spontaneous images she takes "

Amanda Vail is happy to work from either a clients location or her studio outside Cambridge. She also undertakes photo shoots from a studio in central London.

Five years on, Amanda is a well established photographer with an international client base.
