I am a garden photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I was born and raised in England, where I developed a love for everything to do with gardens and gardening. I watched and closely observed my dad pottering around our typically English yard full of roses, fruit trees and a large veggie patch. I loved to help him mow the lawn, dig up the potatoes and plant the hyacinth bulbs in the autumn. To this day I can remember almost all the plants in my childhood garden and particular scents evoke wonderful happy memories.
Formally trained in both photography and garden design, I bring a unique perspective to the art of capturing gardens. My expertise lies in the combination of a good eye, understanding design principles plus the technical knowledge to get the best shot possible. All of this helps me capture the look and feel of a garden for my clients and, being detail oriented, I will skillfully curate a selection of photographs showing the garden at its most beautiful.
While I'll always love an English garden, I love spending early mornings in my clients' California gardens, capturing the first light and enjoying the stillness of the day.
When I don’t have a camera in my hands, you can find me tending to my garden or walking the East Bay trails always chasing magic of light in the landscape??
