I am both photographer and writer, conveying the beauty of gardens and plants through words and pictures that appear in publications all over the world. For 25 years now, I have photographed widely throughout the British Isles, meeting the remarkable people behind lovely English gardens, specialist nurseries and plant collections.
My work is published worldwide, not only in books, quality magazines and newspapers, but also in greetings cards, calendars and advertising materials. However, it is the feature packages of text, high resolution images and captions that is at the heart of my work. I love the challenge of both photographing and writing about gardens and, over the years, have come to recognise countless plants.
I am very fortunate to have privileged access to so many enchanting places, and capture their beauty using the digital Nikon D800E and D810, two superb cameras producing 36mb high resolution files.
Gardens photography is incredibly absorbing, but I try to strike a work / life balance, and my other interests include playing flute, windsurfing, cooking, gardening, running, and paddle boarding on the UK’s rivers and estuaries. I live on the River Thames to the south-west of London, just 10 miles from London Heathrow Airport, and 25 minutes by train from London Waterloo railway station.
