Hello I'm Amanda
I’m a photographer who specializes in aerial photography. I first flew a drone in 2017 and I was hooked, I guess you say it was love at first flight. Graduating from architecture school and leaving my beloved college job at The Center for Creative Photography left me with a strong desire to seek out beauty and do something creative. The drone was the perfect creative outlet, combining my creative side with my adventurous outdoor-loving side.
Eventually my passion and curiosity led me to take on photography gigs and start my business on the side. I applied my focus to the architecture and construction world as I saw how resourceful aerial photography could be in those industries. I then started expanding into commercial filming gigs, portraits, and even nightlife event photography.
In 2020 I was able to support myself solely on my own work when I lost my job. Today, I continue to operate my business while working as an architectural designer, choosing only to take on clients and jobs that inspire me.

Arizona Drone Festival - Annual event host/ MC
A fun sidequest
In 2020 I joined a media team creating livestreams of musicians from beautiful remote locations all over Arizona. I loved being a part of something bigger than myself and helping other creative people chase their dreams. As live music events returned, I wanted to continue supporting musicians. I became a night-life photographer specializing in the electronic dance music community in Arizona. I am now head of media for a locally organized festival known as Pitch a Tent festival. I run a secondary instagram account known as “eyelevel_az: to showcase my work on the music scene.
