Garden Design Photography

No inspiring garden design portfolio exists in isolation; its essence, creativity and distinction are distilled in each and every thoughtful image crafted by its photographers. The perseverance, ingenuity and creativeness required to produce image-making brilliance are steered by a personal touch, professionalism and imaginativeness to unravel and fully capture the evolution and continual progress of a garden designer's canon. While close relationships are often formed between like-minded artists, the garden photographers whom we collaborate with not only instil highly defined focus into diverse projects, but also elevate London's urban settings through contemporary vignettes of opulence, clarity, spatial definition and narrational articulation.

Refined Lens Vision

The trust and understanding between garden designer and garden photographer are formed in a myriad of environments, when intuition, reciprocation, or mere chance express dynamic design nuances. The fascinating journey through contemporary journalism, materialised in editorial, book and online publications, style magazines, newspaper photo shoots and regular portfolio updates sustains and refines not only the garden designer's body of work, but also the photographer's corpus of stock images. No matter what high-tech equipment may be utilised; unique aperture, depth of field, tripod control, camera angle and vast image editing techniques, the photographic ideology of a garden photographer, or photographess, is invariably communicated through sheer refinement and thoroughly subjective lens vision.
