About me

©AmandaThomsenPhotographyOk, I don’t normally stand with a glass of wine while I am taking pictures, and I normally don’t take pictures of myself either.  But this is a picture I took of myself.  I took it some months ago while I was living in Nairobi, Kenya.  I saw myself in the mirror and felt so happy, I was with my parents who had come to visit us, I was with my newly adopted little boy Louis and my wonderful husband.  I was surrounded by the beauty of giraffe in the Kenyan landscape and having a lovely glass of wine .. So I took this picture of to remind myself how privileged I am.

My name is Amanda Thomsen and I am the photographer behind this site.  I hope you enjoy my work and if you do, need a photographer or just want to say hi, please don’t hesitate in contacting me.

Me? I am a profesional, creative, honest and very passionate photographer.

My background? I was born in Denmark but lived in Spain all my childhood with my bigger sister and my parents (from I was 4 til 17 years old). I came back to Denmark, and after some years I went and studied photography in England. Back in Denmark, I started my photography business and married a French man. Lived in Kenya for almost 9 months, while we were adopting our little son Louis.  Now we are back in Copenhagen, Denmark.

My education? I got a BA(hons) degree in Photography, at Kent Institute of Art and Design, England, class of 2002. I have been an independent photographer ever since.  I also work with video.  I do everything to stay inspired and I love my job.

What else? I speak Danish, Spanish and English fluently, I want to learn French and Swahili. I’m not a great cook, but I love food.  I also love dancing. I can’t sing. I have two cats.  I love to come up with new ideas.  I collect all kind of things, cause I’m too nostalgic to throw it out.  I have had the privilege to have seen many places around world, I have dived in the ocean, and fell in love with the lemon sharks in Tahiti.  I have tried surfing in Hawaii and Costa Rica, and was exhausted after just a few hours, but I loved it.  I’m dyslexic and I found my passion.
