CAPTIVATING PHOTOGRAPHY of GARDENS & FLOWERS YOU CAN FEEL
Garden & Flower
I am a fine art garden and flower photographer in the UK. I use analogue film, natural light and a portrait lens to create timeless & authentic images of gardens & flowers.
This approach helps set me apart from other photographers.

PHOTOGRAPHY CAPTURED WITH PURPOSE
Photography brings me peace & joy, and I want to do it to the best of my ability.
I seek to convey the emotion and honesty of a garden or a flower on analgue film through a no-edit approach and a portrait lens that enables me to do so.
Analog places me in a meditative state, considering only what’s relevant to the
story. When I see something I want to photograph, I just know, there is a strong connection.

AS NATURAL AS NATURE
Intuitive Interpretations & lasting Impressions
Neither contrived, nor forced, I allow a subject to reveal itself to me, whilst at the same time, studying and observing.
At the point of reveal, there is a sense of deep connection and knowing, and it is at this point that I will commit to film.
Photography is more than merely raising the camera to one's eye, and pressing the shutter button. It is about making a real connection, having a sense of anticipation, being surprised, and being touched in a profound way.
Let's create something
As I build my portfolio over the forthcoming months whilst navigating garden & flower photography, I would love to work with likeminded garden, flower and landscape creatives on mutually rewarding projects.
Previously, as a UK leading Fine Art Wedding Photographer, I invested time to push my creativity. Working toward an exciting common goal, collaborations are perfect for elevating one's creativity, with the added potential of being published.
PHOTOGRAPHY THAT IS ROOTED IN THOUGHTFUL STORYTELLING
It was the Dovecote with espalier pear and apple trees adorning its walls in the Parterre rose garden that first drew me in. On arriving, my first glimpse of the Pigeonaire stole my heart, then when I visited the 'Vale of Venus' garden, my senses were ignited.
Despite heavy rain throughout the day, I was able to capture some of Rousham's beauty, and cannot wait to visit again in different seasons.
I am alone, there is no one in this space to disturb me. There is birdsong, a gentle breeze and the sound of my heartbeat. My eye is drawn to an occasional ray of sunlight that ascents the garden and I ponder over this moment.
The garden is dotted with historic flair as well as modern finesse and completed by its planting. My breathing becomes in tune with the garden's rhythmic movement as a breeze gently weaves a path through. Our souls collide. The charm and beauty of this place awakens my desire to immortalise this moment in my heart, for every such moment is transient and irretrievable.
Not one day, moment, second is the same, nor will I discover every story conveyed before me. But, that is not the purpose here; it is to delight, respect, appreciate and to capture. As I raise my camera to my eye, this moment can only be captured with the right amount of sensitivity and vision. It is then that the magic reveals itself to us.
