The phrase, “good things come in small packages”, rings true when referring to model Amanda Sparks. She may be small in stature, but besides being a model she is also a cosplayer and active car enthusiast. I guess you can say she is “the whole package”. Based out of Florida, Amanda is passionate about everything she does and fierce in a pair of heels and in front of the camera.
I had the opportunity of meeting Amanda at Hot Import Nights in Tampa, Florida. Although the meeting was brief and I was unable to get many photos at the event, I took the initiative and reached out to have a formal one on one shoot with her. Being a commercial photographer for Modern Muscle in Ocala, Florida, it was the perfect location to do so, and we had access to the warehouse and cars.
After the shoot we were able to sit down and discuss all things Amanda Sparks.
