My name is Amanda Flinn-King I am a freelance photographer and makeup artist from the Redding/Chico area. I've been taking pictures and loving photography since I got my hands on a disposable camera as a young girl. I am a self taught photographer, makeup artist and I am a student cosmetologist at Marinello Schools of Beauty. I am planning move with my husband Michael to Santa Barbara next year after I graduate to attend Brooks Institute.
MY ART: I try to be as creative with my work as possible. I don't like limits. I refrain as much as I can from overly editing my work all the time, I like to do as many tricks and techniques manually rather than ALL in photoshop. However, I do use photoshop cs4 currently and I do touch ups and edits as needed. I do many different styles of photos, I have a great love for lo-fi and vintage photography so some of my work will have that feel and then some will be completely the opposite. I tend to like an image thatâs crisp and clear with great lighting just as much as I like one thatâs out of focus and shadowed. To me photography is art, and also makeup is art. I have a great love for high fashion, and I hope to attend cinema makeup school for beauty and high fashion.
CLIENT WORK: Iâm very easy to work with, Iâm a very friendly person and a great listener. Iâm good at quickly figuring out simple things like your best angles etc. For me, my job is to make you look and feel amazing! Its one of the most rewarding things to me. I require an initial consultation before shooting to get to know you and hear your ideas.
MAKEUP FOR CLIENTS: If its going to be for something like a wedding I require a practice session.
