Photography of plants and gardens


I have been photographing gardens and plants on a freelance basis for many years. I distribute my work through the specialist horticultural image library GAP Photos . I am also happy to undertake commissioned garden photography, so please do get in touch if you would like to discuss a commission.

With interests in garden history and in that rather esoteric topic of what gardens are actually for, combined with a strong sense of connection to these spaces, I also use my images in a range of garden talks which feature gardens from many parts the world and where possible using gardens that people may not know well.

I also have a passion for travel, often to places somewhat off the well beaten track and always with a camera in my hands, and I offer a number of travelogue style talks too.

Based in the picturesque village of Offenham near Evesham in Worcestershire, with my other hat on I am the under-gardener at Langdale Garden , which my wife Sheila & I have developed since moving to Offenham in 2009.
