About

I am a freelance photographer now based in the Southwest of England, although I was born in Australia and spent my childhood in Singapore.  I have been a Getty Images artist for many years and am constantly seeking new and innovative ways to approach my work.  Also contributing to Alamy, my stock images are reproduced worldwide in magazines, newspapers, books, and brochures and also used for design, promotions and advertising.  

I am available for commissions and have worked with private gardens, retails outlets, tourist offices and garden designers and garden centres to produce slideshow videos, magazine articles, promotional material, and images for their brochures and websites. I have also worked on private commissions for slideshow videos, photo albums, greeting cards, CD covers and coffee table books. Although I particularly enjoy shooting gardens through the seasons I have also undertaken commissions for subjects as diverse as pet portraiture, musical instruments and miniature horses.

Now spending time between Dorset (UK) and Spain, I have in recent years specialised in landscape and garden photography, collaborating with guitarist Samantha Muir to produce slideshow videos. I have enjoyed working with landscape gardener Jan van Eijle, photographing new gardens as the plantings become established. Another highlight has been photographing the inspirational Minterne Gardens in Dorset and creating a slideshow video set to music.

I am a member of the Garden Media Guild (GMG) and the Professional Garden Photographer’s Association (PGPA).

In November 2009 I with collaborated with Samantha Muir to produce a book, The Alchemy of Thyme and Rubble, poetry and photos of the Marina Alta.
