About + Contact

Amanda Guerra was raised in Kansas City, Missouri, where at the age of six she received her first camera. She attended the Kansas City Art Institute before transferring to Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois to pursue her passion for photography.

Amanda studied under Bob Thall, who helped her identify her niche as an architecture photographer. After graduation, she began working freelance with Hedrich Blessing Photographers. That summer, through the Cameras for Kids Workshop, Amanda taught darkroom processing on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

She currently volunteers with Latitude Chicago, a nonprofit digital print lab, while continuing to work with Hedrich Blessing Photographers. Most recently, Amanda served as a workshop assistant for Lenscratch creator Aline Smithson at the 2015 Filter Photo Festival.
