"A prayer of gratitude. Gratitude for the beautiful flowers and gratitude for the eyes to see them with...."
I have always loved flowers. They are a source of great joy, they make me smile.
Since 2005 I have been fortunate to be commissioned by the Royal Horticultural Society and the Medici Society to photograph an infinite variety of flowers and beautiful gardens. My images have also been published in many magazines and editorials. Below are some examples of these images in the first section, "Flowers".
"Flora Dramatica" is a collection of floral photographs contained in a book. Each bloom is photographed on a black background to isolate it's beauty from any distraction. The colours pop from the page and the textures and structural shapes are revealed and enhanced.
. "Passiflora Botanica" is a small portfolio of images created to show the life cycle of the Passion flower which was growing in my garden! I entered the portfolio into the British Institute of Professional Photography's International competition and was delighted to be awarded a Bronze.
