Born in Holland of English/Dutch descent, photographer Amanda Lane took her formal photographic training at the Royal College of Art, London. Whilst at the RCA Amanda specialized in 19th Century printing techniques and became an expert in fine printing, acting as a consultant for many photographers. Sensitized to the chemicals, Amanda was awarded a scholarship from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, presented by Queen Elizabeth II in 2002 to transform all her skills to Digital. Since graduating with a Master’s Degree Amanda has accepted commissions from Vogue, The Sunday Times, corporate institutions and private portraits. The commissions utilize her skills as a photographer and draw upon her printing expertise, thus making her work quite unique.
Amanda currently lives in Sebastopol with her daughter, receiving commissions from Wineries, local businesses and private commissions and in 2009 she created Camera Locavora featuring sustainable food economies and practices in Sonoma County.
