Flora

Since the start of my career as a professional photographer my photography has revolved around plants. For many years my work was used in gardening magazines that often involved taking images of gardens, shrubs, trees, hybrid, species plants and of course the odd garden gnome hidden in between. When I first  took up photography I was drawn to close-ups of flowers. I eventually moved on from close-ups to medium type images that included not only single flowers but also their surroundings. Within this gallery you will find a selection of both types of images, from close-ups to scenic images.
