Autumn planting at RHS Wisley

After a hectic summer, I’m enjoying the creative time to make some of my own photographs. I was fortunate to be accepted into the Garden Media Guild and Professional Garden Photographers Association this year, and I’m looking forward to doing more of what I love in 2019 – visiting public and private gardens, meeting horticulturalists, working alongside other Garden Media members, and creating portraits of gardens and gardeners alike.

These are a handful of images from one October morning when I took a walk around my local RHS garden at Wisley. It was the perfect sort of autumn day, when the leaves look as though they’re on fire and the sky is that perfectly complementary blue. Delicious light!
