Amanda Ratcliffe, or amandashootsbands is a New Zealand born artist practicing music and travel documentary photography.
With twelve years experience in the music industry, she has refined her skills to focus on bands backstage and behind the scenes. Amanda’s calm and gentle approach has seen her gain access to a number of well-respected artists and recording studios over the years, including Neil Finn’s iconic Roundhead Studios.
She is a regular face at the APRA Silver Scroll Awards and SongHubs sessions, and has also worked on Big Day Out, Laneway and Newtown festivals.
Recent travels through Eastern Europe saw Amanda rekindle her love for street photography, which she is currently working on developing through study. With a fondness toward raw and untouched images, her aim is to produce a body of work that represents the way she sees and experiences everyday life.
Amanda believes in working with artists who are equally as passionate about creating classic and timeless images to outlast our ever-changing digital world.
