About Me

I am a photographer and film maker creating editorial and commercial work in the garden, landscape and the built environment industries. 

Clients include national magazines, corporate clients and design practices, educational institutions, small businesses and public bodies. I am currently photographing Buckingham Palace Gardens through the seasons for an official book, the first on the gardens (Royal Collection Trust, published Spring 2021).

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


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


"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."
