We had the good fortune of connecting with Amanda Tipton and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Amanda, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
I’ve gotten both better and worse at work-life balance over time. I think as I’ve gotten older it’s gotten easier to establish good boundaries with work- only answering emails at certain times, protecting my days off, etc… However, I think as I’ve tailored my photography business to what I want to be doing it’s harder to say no to work. As work gets more involving and exciting, the line between work and life can get a little blurry!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am an arts and dance photographer. I work with a variety of organizations like Wonderbound, the Colorado Symphony, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Central City Opera and others. I also photograph dancers, helping them advance their careers and social media presence. I really like helping artists of all kinds find their audiences and promote their work!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
RiNo Arts District Mural walk, Tattered Cover Bookstore on Colfax, Stella’s Coffee Haus on Pearl St, Sweet Cow Ice Cream, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and the Broadmoor…
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My therapist for helping set and keep boundaries!
