My names Owen Hearn and I'm a 12 year old self taught wildlife and agricultural photographer based on our beef farm near Stewkley, Buckinghamshire, UK. Currently I mainly shoot local wildlife on our farm and several others (with kind permission from landowners), but do travel to different parts of the UK for certain subjects such as gannets on the Yorkshire coast and Norfolk for whooper swans and seals when I can.

My aim one day is to photograph how wildlife and agriculture interact with each other in different cultures and get more into documentary photography and photojournalism. I'd also be very interested in photographing conflicts - not necessarily the fighting but the effects it has on the people surrounded by it everyday, and the aftermath both physically and mentally in which conflicts cause to people.

I work on both our beef farm, and an arable farm a few miles away. So during silaging and harvest my photography work gets a bit quiet, due to being extremely busy on the farms.

I have won a few competitions/awards including:

I won the 2012 veolia young wildlife photographer of the year: (one of the biggest wildlife photography competitions there is, worldwide with tens of thousands of entries!)
I won the 11-14 year old category and also got the runner up in the category, and went on to win the overall young wildlife photographer of the year.
I also done a short 10 minute talk at Wildphotos (http://www.wildphotos.org.uk) which was scary but worth it, and I also went on BBC news which was a amazing experience!
To say I was pleased was a understatement, This is the one of the biggest competitions of it's kind and is worldwide!

RSPCA young photographer awards 2011: 2 images commended in the 12-15 year old category.
RSPCA young photographer awards 2012: 1 image commended and 1 runner up in the 12-15 year old category. And a portfolio of Cows on the farm came runner in the portfolio category.
RSPCA young photographer awards 2013: 1 image commended in the 12-15 category, and 1 runner up. Also a portfolio of farm wildlife won the portfolio category.
RSPCA young photographer awards 2014: 1 image commended 12-15 category, runner up image 12-15 category, winning image 12-15 category. Winner of the 12-15 category went on to win overall rspca ypa 2014!! :)

1 highly commended image in the Bristish wildlife photography awards 2014.

I have had several pictures in magazines including the easy jet passenger magazine (double page spread) , BBC wildlife magazine and newspapers such as the sun, telegraph and daily mail.

I hope you enjoy my photographs. I'm always on the look out for photo opportunities and am currently looking to photograph some more tractors and other agricultural kit as well as dairy cattle so if you fancy getting a couple of free prints in return for me being able to use the images commercially please drop me a line!
