Inspired by the colour, beauty and structure of flowers, lead me to concentrate more on this field of photography. The camera is the perfect medium to explore and capture the details of flowers, with the variety of lenses available, particularly using a macro lens gives the opportunity of seeing the finer details of the flower, which is not seen from a distance by the naked eye.
Following on from completing a Diploma in Photography in 2002, I worked as a photographer's assistant for Prudence Cuming, a Fine Art Photography Company.
Since 2005, I have been working as a freelance photographer, specialising in gardens, plants and works of art. Commissions have included:
