About Me

John Campbell is a freelance photographer and film maker, creating editorial and commercial work, specialising in gardens, plants and landscape. Clients include publishing houses, national magazines and websites, corporate clients, garden designers and landscape businesses, architects, PR agencies, hospitality venues and accommodation providers, suppliers and fabricators, trade bodies and educational organisations.


The book 'Buckingham Palace: A Royal Garden', the first official book, photographing the famous royal London garden and its gardeners throughout the seasons, was published by the Royal Collection Trust in Spring 2021.

Awards include Second Prize in the International Garden Photographer of the Year 'Beautiful Gardens' competition; and Third Prize in the RHS Photographer of the Year's 'Celebrating Gardens'. 

For a number of years, I contributed regularly to both Photography Monthly and Professional Photographer magazines, writing features and monthly columns. 

If you are interested in creating content such as photography or video, don't hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat about options.


"I've worked with John for several years with my garden sector clients and he always delivers.  Not only does he provide stunning images to match and often exceed the brief, he charges in a no-nonsense commercial way which provides my clients with their images for an agreed and sensible flat fee for the entire job.  He is an absolute joy to work with."

"Working with John is a breeze - stress free and enjoyable. He has ideas that are practical yet inventive, and his people skills and understanding of a client's needs is second to none. I have worked with him on many photo and video shoots for a national magazine and I look forward to working with him again in the future."
