STEPHEN STUDD

"One of the most influential garden photographers in the UK"

Horticulture Week 

 

Thank you for visiting my website.

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.

During the pandemic I decided to let go of the travel photography side of my business which was made much easier after Barney our English Springer Spaniel came into our life. I now concentrate on garden, landscape and food photography commissions.

Through my 30+ years experience working as a professional photographer, I know how to take the shots you need and deliver them to you on time.

LOCATION BASED

All of my commercial photography is location based which means you can commission me from any part of the UK or World.

 

PHOTOGRAPHY THAT DELIVERS

FOR YOUR PROJECT & BRAND

TO YOUR BUDGET

If you need unique, compelling, high quality photography for your project or brand, I know how to get the shots for you, with my 30 years experience as a professional photographer. My rates are great value and I have a variety of packages to suit your project and budget, whether it be for advertising, your print material or website or all, no commission is too big or too small.

PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR GARDEN

I can create sets of photographs of your private garden through the seasons.

As a seasoned garden photographer and a gardener myself I know how to use the light to show your garden at it's best. I can produce a set of photographs either as digital images for you to use or the photography can be made into hand crafted albums or bespoke books for your private collection. Call me or use the CONTACT form to discuss this option.

If you have a garden that you would like to be photographed for a potential magazine feature please contact me to discuss this.

 

THE BIO BIT

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE: 

"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 really 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.

AND NOW
Divide time between garden, food and commercial photography commissions, assignments, books, magazines and stock shoots.

I have an online flower photography print and greetings cards shop which can be found at

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 with my wife and Springer Spaniel, discovering new places, new music, artists and creatives.

Oh yeah and I keep buying vintage watering cans!

MOST ASKED QUESTION  
Do you photograph weddings? No, never have done and no intention to start.


CONNECT
I am on INSTAGRAM, FACEBOOK, TWITTER and LinkedIn.
