I am an award winning freelance garden, flower, travel, landscape and food photographer, based in the beautiful Cotswolds town of Stroud in Gloucestershire, which was recently voted the best place to live in the UK, I can vouch for that.
Through my 30+ years experience working as a professional photographer I know how to take the shots you need for your brand and deliver them to you on time.
All of my commercial photography is location based which means you can commission me from any part of the UK or World.

THE BIO BIT
"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things" A Miller
HOW IT ALL STARTED
Born in Leeds I caught the photography bug after developing a black & white photograph at school, that was my life changing moment.
WHERE IT LED ME
I went on to gain a 2:1 B.A. Hons degree in photography and film at LCP London. Worked in colour darkrooms at Tony Stone Worldwide for 3 years, then started out as a freelance garden, travel and landscape photographer.
My sole income has been through freelance photography for 30+ years. I am still in love with the whole process of image making and have picked up numerous awards along the way.
Divide time between garden, travel and commercial photography commissions, assignments, books, magazines and stock shoots.
I own Digital Photography Holidays Ltd running flower and garden photography workshops in the UK and travel and landscape photography holidays in Cambodia, Vietnam, Morocco and the USA.
I have an online flower photography print and greetings cards shop which can be found at the Garden Photography Gallery.
WHAT MAKES ME BUZZ
I love add-venture, eclipse chasing, moon bathing, growing our own food on our organic allotment, getting away in my VW campervan, discovering new places, new music, artists and creatives. Oh yeah and I keep buying vintage watering cans!
