I worked on an allotment series in Richmond for Gardeners’ World magazine between 2008-10. The adjacent plot was looked after by a very quiet Irishman, Michael Hobbs, who I got to know during my frequent visits. I loved his plot, which was like a 1960’s back garden, complete with gnomes and ornamental frogs, and I frequently left with handfuls of spare fruit, veg or flowers. These unpublished portraits were taken in 2010 after my last visits for GW.

Nice to have the cover of this month’s Gardeners’ World magazine, with their Gardens of the Year competition issue. Congratulations to all the lovely folk I met en-route in a slightly mad 8 day dash across the UK from Kent, Hampshire, Wales, up to the Lake District, Scotland and finally to the Orkney Islands. And thanks for all the 5am cups of coffee, bacon sandwiches and chocolate biscuits to keep me going…I promise, I wasn’t a judge!
From a shoot last summer, a lovely layout in the latest issue of SAGA Magazine, illustrating the work of rose grower, Rosebie Morton. Some out-takes too, as there is never enough room for all the shots taken for a feature.
This afternoon I received an advance copy of the book I shot with Katie Rushworth and Tara O’Sullivan last summer. Really pleased!
