Interview with Amanda Dawes

Interviews

21 August 2015

Posted by Sally Hart

Hi Amanda! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I guess I'm an adventurer at heart, I love nature, exploring new places, learning new things and taking on new challenges, the further off the beaten track the more I love it.

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

AI shoot with a Canon 60D, its a good compromise for stills and video at a reasonable price. I would love a Canon 5D mkiii for its low light capabilities or a 7D mkii for traveling for its quick shooting capabilities. My favourite set up is a zoom or macro lens...I love close up shots.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

AWhen you have the luxury of time to get shots, take the obvious shot and then try to capture it a couple more times from different vantage points.

'I find it really hard to pick a favourite....but if at a push I had to I would be cheeky and pick two...</br>I love taking photos of children as they are so natural in front of... Read more

'I find it really hard to pick a favourite....but if at a push I had to I would be cheeky and pick two...</br>I love taking photos of children as they are so natural in front of the camera, and I particularly love this picture. Normally you would focus on the eyes when taking a portrait but the fact that this young girls eyes are not in focus draws you in even more, deeper into her untold story. There is sadness in her eyes yet they evoke a still calmness, there is a dreamy longing filled with hope and trust, an innocence that is pure. This shot was taken at a children’s home in India, who helped the Dalit caste, a name given to a wide range of low caste Hindu groups who were given the lowest roles in society of removing rubbish and human waste from latrines etc and were known as the ‘Untouchables’, a caste once born into, you can never change. Although there has been measures by the government to help discrimination, change takes time, and there is still a lot of hardship for these families.' Read less

'My second favourite would be this... I love this one purely for the comic value. The fashion police would have a field day with the juxtaposition of this older man with jeans, white singlet and a beer belly on a motorbike yet with his helmet on backwards and a feminine shopping bag. I love the fact that he doesn’t care about how he looks. It also sums up Cuba for me, a place filled with contradictions of old and new.' Read less

'The Bolivian Salt Flats dotted with uniform pyramids of salt that has been dutifully shovelled by hand waiting for collection by the old red flat bed trucks. I love how the landscape of white has been broken up by the contrasting red trucks and pushbike that in themselves ooze character and take you back in time.' Read less

'The Great Wall of China is truly a magnificent sight and a great place to see it at JinShanLing, north of Beijing. I explored the walls in the gruelling heat of the day and then returned again in the evening to watch the sunset over the hills and capture this shot in the warm light of the setting sun.' Read less

'The old ruins of the ancient town of Shahrisabz in Uzbekistan. A hot dry country steeped in history of nomadic and Persian empires, revelling its Islamic roots in its regal architecture. The old muslim man crosses the courtyard and is dwarfed by the immenseness of the alluring structure.' Read less
