Amanda Owen

Shepherdess, hill farmer, writer, photographer, public speaker and mother of nine, Amanda Owen ( www.yorkshireshepherdess.com ) lives a busy and rewarding life with her husband Clive and their family at Ravenseat in Swaledale, one of the highest, most remote hill farms in England.

After being featured in the popular ITV Series The Dales, Amanda began documenting the fascinating story of her farming life, publishing two bestselling books: The Yorkshire Shepherdess in 2014, and A Year in the Life of The Yorkshire Shepherdess in 2016.

In this talk to an open meeting of Harrogate Photographic Society, Amanda will illustrate what the life of a hill shepherd entails, starting with the early influence that the book Hill Shepherd (John & Eliza Forder, 1989) played in shaping the course of her life. Inspired by natural, yet not necessarily beautiful, images and sharing an honest assessment of the trials and tribulations of taking photographs in a working environment, Amanda will discuss how the photographs in her visual diary help the viewer to understand the many elements of her life in the wilds.
