About Me

I am a photographer and film maker creating editorial and commercial work, specialising in gardens, plants and landscape. Clients include national magazines, corporate clients, garden designers and garden businesses,  and educational and public bodies.


My book Buckingham Palace: A Royal Garden, the first official book on the gardens, photographing the garden and its gardeners throughout the seasons, is being published by the Royal Collection Trust in Summer 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'. 

If you are interested in creating content such as videos or getting photographs taken, don't hesitate to get in touch for a chat.


"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."
