Amber Banks Brumby is a photographer and educator based in rural Staffordshire, West Midlands. Her practice explores environments, people and nature, focused with a documentary approach to photography.
With a passion for angling and the 45% rise of female anglers in the UK, Amber has set out to raise awareness, address barriers, and to help change the demographic profile of fishing within a male dominated sport. So far Ambers work has enabled her to meet and capture an abundance of inspirational women across the country, hear their stories and connect to nature in so many immersive ways.
In 2020 Amber’s series Peacocks Cry was published by Out of Place Books, which offers a personal and intuitive exploration of rural life in a tiny hamlet in Staffordshire. The series takes place on her family farm in the English countryside where daily life, and death, play out to the backdrop of changing seasons.
Amber graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2014 and has been teaching Photography for eight years. Her work has been shown most recently with Shutter Hub, 120×120 – Singapore, Photography Prize – RBSA Gallery, No Go Press, Print Magazine and Black River Magazine.
