In 2010 Aimee Spinks graduated from Blackpool and Fylde Arts College with a 2:1 BA(hons) degree in photography. During her course, and heavily inspired by the likes of Gregory Crewdson, Aimee fell in love with working with actors to create cinematic photographic projects, and it was this passion that lead her to discover her current career as a unit stills photographer.
Today, Aimee works internationally as a photographer specialising in providing production stills and gallery photography to the film and TV industry. Aimee prides herself on her ability to work unobtrusively on set to capture the heart of a production, as well as making cast and crew feel comfortable with her presence - particularly during sensitive scenes or when working with young and demanding casts.
Aimee has also found being petite to be an advantage when needing to work in small, intimate spaces without getting in the way of the cast or crew and has regularly received praise from camera crews and 1st ADs for her ability to 'work like a ninja' whilst still getting the shots the production needs. Though small, Aimee is not afraid to muck in, dangle off cliffs or shoot in other challenging conditions, and is currently looking at becoming a qualified scuba diver in order to be able to cover underwater unit stills.
Being young and energetic, Aimee has an affinity for working with child actors and holds a DBS (formerly CRB) certificate.
When not running around as a unit stills photographer, Aimee can usually be found powerlifting at her local gym or training in circus arts such as pole and contortion. She also can't say no to a karaoke night!
