About Me

Advertising photographer and web designer, Amanda Cotton, has never left home without at least one camera in tow for over 20 years. Specializing in underwater and travel photography, her technical abilities and skills were further mastered through rigorous professional education.

Amanda was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. As an avid scuba diver, dive instructor, and surfer Amanda has always loved being in and around water. Amanda's goal is to help the general public embrace the beauty below the waves, in hopes that with awareness comes concern. The conservation and preservation of our aquatic ecosystems is of the highest priority to her. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Professional Photography while attending Brooks Institute of Photography, and is presently pursuing a graduate degree in Computer Arts/New Media from The Academy of Arts in San Francisco.

Amanda is quite honored to have been the recipient of many awards including several from the International Photographers Awards (IPA), Celebrate The Sea, Underwater Photography Annual Awards, and many others. Amanda writes for Ocean Geographic Magazine covering environmental and marine conservation issues, and is currently Gallery Editor for Shark Savers, a non profit shark conservation organization dedicated to bringing awareness, education and action toward protecting one of the oceans most misunderstood animals, the shark.
