Athens + Atlanta, GA editorial and commercial photographer
Atlanta, Georgia editorial and advertising commercial photographer available for assignments and commissions
Amanda Greene is a photographer and artist living near Athens, GA. Amanda offers a unique perspective as a working photographer based in rural Georgia
"Amanda Greene lives with her husband and dog in Danielsville, Ga., a town of roughly 600 people between Atlanta and Greenville, S.C. The moments that make up her personal work — inspired by quiet, often offbeat, yet distinctly Southern moments — are often a short drive away, co-piloted by her dog, riding shotgun. The oft-tricky problem of access is usually easily solved with a simple gesture toward her car’s license plate.
After working in Los Angeles’ entertainment industry for over 12 years, she returned to Georgia and found her perspective sharpened by time away. Today, she photographs the people, items and texture of the place she wants to preserve. Junked American cars, hand-painted signs, the grocery store her grandparents took her to were unchanged after decades."
(Matt McCann, from the New York Times LensBlog)
Living in a rural area near a small town informs Amanda’s work, seasonal shifts and subtle changes that occur over time combine with a slower pace of life to provide endless subjects to photograph. This unique perspective of life off the beaten path helps Amanda’s work tell a story of time and place.
