Renowned photographer and television personality Amanda de Cadenet is the creator and host of the new television series The Conversation, airing on Lifetime. Co-produced by de Cadenet and Demi Moore, The Conversation features interviews with internationally famous women, as well as lesser-known figures. It covers a wide variety of topics universal to women including: love and sexuality; body image; career and finances, relationships and women’s rights.
De Cadenet began her career at age of 14 as the host of the U.K. television shows The Word and Breakfast. After becoming one of the U.K.’s best known personalities, she realized that her true place was behind the camera and began taking pictures. De Cadenet’s photography has been described as "truthful," "haunting," "radiant" and "intimate." She shoots advertising campaigns, Hollywood icons, rock royalty and friends at play alike, always infusing her work with an appealing honesty and authenticity, and an original vision.
The youngest woman to shoot a Vogue magazine cover, de Cadenet has photographed many of the most celebrated icons of popular culture including Drew Barrymore, Sofia Coppola, Demi Moore, Amber Valetta, Olivia Wilde, Mary J Blige, Keanu Reeves, Beck, and The Strokes. She has worked with such magazines as diverse as Vanity Fair, Vogue, Rolling Stone, Dazed and Confused, and the New York Times Magazine. Her campaigns include Converse, Reebok, Roxy and Absolut.
Her first book of photography, Rare Birds, is a ten-year retrospective that truly captures contemporary lifestyle on the cutting edge. Her insider status allowed her unprecedented access to a provocative cast of characters, some wildly famous, others just anonymous by-passers; all inspired something in her.
De Cadenet has used her position to help draw attention to the plight of women and girls and has committed to representing women authentically and sensitively through her work.
Her newest project, "The Conversation," aims to motivate and inspire women around the world.
De Cadenet currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, their twins, and de Cadenet’s daughter.
