Conversations with the Inspiring Amanda Zapata

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amanda Zapata.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I have always liked to take photos, even before there were cellphones with cameras and the super-sophisticated recent cameras. I like to capture every moment or moment to remember all the time in my life. When I was in Mexico, I started with landscapes, people on the streets and finally to my closers friends till stop being a hobby and became my passion.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The truth is that when I was in Mexico everything was like a passion to me, so it wasn’t hard to me cause it was something I like to do it. Here in Denver, Colorado was a little more complicated because there was a wall of language and different cultures, but I started to do what most like and let me know to the people around here, they have been accepted my work so good and that’s something that fills me up, the advice would be to never abandon your dreams despite bad comments or people who make you feel uncomfortable for your work, just be yourself and show the world what you’re capable of.

What should we know about Amandha Photography? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Our job is to take pictures either panoramic, family, couples, weddings, graduations, parties, and any fashion event, social events where photographic work is required, about the area of ​​expertise, I like all types of photography but especially I love couples, families, and fashion, this is because in each of the branches is reflected either the happiness of couples and love, and in families I always learn something from each session with them and finally the one from fashion, I love trends, I love colors and I love that with these girls half of the work is already done, they know how to pose perfectly for the photos, I think they teach me.

What I am most proud of is that I can be myself as a Latina and open the doors in another country and that my work likes a lot of people from all sides and we can exchange ideas.

I think that everyone has their own style, in my case, I like to play with the nuances and colors in the photos without losing that expression on their faces and that the photo comes out very natural.

What do you feel are the biggest barriers today to female leadership, in your industry or generally?
The truth in this industry photography is very competitive in men or women both there are of the two with an excellent job, but I think that more in areas like politics is still a little closed the participation of women leaders, that’s what I think about this topic.
