What is a feature?

A feature is made up of

  • high resolution jpeg images (sizes 7 – 21mb)
  • well researched, informative text written in English, and sent on a Word document
  • An Excel spreadsheet of picture captions that contain both common and Latin plant names.
What type of features do you create?

I photograph and write about lovely gardens, renowned gardeners, specialist nurseries, outstanding plant collections, specific plant species, growers, natural crafts and a wide variety of design-related topics.

How many pictures are in each feature?

There are between 25 – 50 jpeg images in each feature. You can see the images available for each feature in the gallery and can download a pdf of the set.

How many words in the text?

Each feature has text in English with between 800 and 1200 words. A 200-word sample of the text is shown on each gallery page.

How much does the feature cost?

The price of the feature depends on how you want to use the images, where you want to use them, print run and exclusivity requirements. According to the number of pages a feature is used over, I offer three different pricing brackets (up to 6 pages; up to 10 pages; 10+ pages). Please email or call to discuss and for a price.

How do I get high resolution files, image captions and text?

The easiest and fastest method is to send you a link to Dropbox, from where you download the material. However, I can also upload to your FTP or send a DVD. The images will be high resolution jpegs, with the text on a word document, and captions on an Excel spreadsheet.

Where can I find your latest work?

New features are added to the homepage and appear at the top. You can also keep up to date with my latest work on my blog or by subscribing to my newsletter.

I need something different: do you have other features?

I shoot all year round so new work may be available before I upload to my website.  I have an extensive archive of thousands of images, and may well be able to put together a feature to suit your needs. Please email or call to discuss.

I need a single image, where can I buy them?

Single images are available from The Garden Collection, a specialist horticultural image library. You can contact them at info@garden-collection or +44 (0) 208 423 9670.

Do you undertake commissions?

Yes. My day rate starts at £400, plus travelling over 40 miles. Please call or email to discuss your project.

What equipment do you use?

All my features are shot on high quality cameras: Hasselblad HDII- 39 digital, Nikon D800E or Hasselblad film camera using 120mm film, converted to high quality digital files using a Nikon Super Coolscan 8000ED.

How can I search the site?

You can use the filter tabs on the front page or use the search box with keywords e.g. summer, vegetable, modern, roses. If you need a little inspiration please click here for a list of ideas.
