Mandy Spring

photographer

I'm Amanda Spring from Richmond, RI. I started taking photos in fourth grade and from there my passion grew. Around 2005 I developed a love for music and always wanted to be part of a band. The closest way of accomplishing that for me, was to become a band photographer! I have been taking band photos professionally under the RIP Photography moniker since 2012, and have been continually growing my business and expanding my portfolio ever since.
