How photographer Amy Bateman went from novice to fully-fledged professional

From physiotherapist to a photographer, to publishing a book documenting farms in Cumbria, Amy Bateman is proof that no career or way of life is unchangeable. Living rurally, her entry into the world of photography was aided by online forums, workshops, and competitions which helped her to improve her techniques and get her work noticed. Now she is publishing her first coffee table book, Forty Farms which documents the diversity of farm life around the Lake District in the UK where she lives.

Juggling parenthood, rural life, and her newfound passion for photography hasn’t always been easy. There’s been exciting job offers she’s had to turn down and stunning photo opportunities missed but there are advantages to living on a 900-acre farm and getting to know it like the back of her hand.
