A walk yesterday with Alys Fowler, taking in a few Brutalist Architecture classics. Starting at the infamous Erno Goldfinger building, the Trellick Tower, following the Regent’s Canal to Regent’s Park and the Royal College of Physicians, then on to The Barbican. I have been to the Barbican many times, but I never knew there was a temperate green house, the Conservatory, which is open to the public. Apparently the second largest in London, it is powered by the residual heat from all of the domestic underfloor heating. Open only on Sunday’s, but we obviously went in through the out door!

A gallery from a big shoot last summer for Gardeners’ World, where I was lucky enough to visit gardens as far as The Lake District, North and West Wales, and the South Coast, for their Garden of the Year competition. The March issue of the magazine arrived today, with the final set of images from the 2016 winners, and details of how to enter this year. The ‘Small Space’ winner and Judges Choice was Steve Moodey’s garden in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. The ‘Family Plot’ winner (and People’s Choice) was Magda D’Ingeo’s garden in Reigate, with the ‘Wildlife Garden’ category taken by Pam Woodall in Poole, Dorset. Thanks […]
This afternoon I received an advance copy of the book I shot with Katie Rushworth and Tara O’Sullivan last summer. Really pleased!
A selection of work taken recently for the RHS at Wisley.
From a shoot on business women in You Magazine on 16th August 2015. On a large feature, several thousand shots often need editing down to half a dozen or so. This means overlooking many equally good images. So, a small selection of out-takes. The first, a quick shot as I was packing my kit away. Two more from the same series:
A day at the RHS Gardens, Wisley, collecting seeds with staff and volunteers.
Organic garden and compost course at the Chelsea Physic Garden.
A revisit to the WC Garden @Vanguard Court Chelsea Fringe project in 2014 for its relaunch as Anna Rose Hughes’ studio.
A shoot for SAGA Magazine, Foamlea Gardens, Mortehoe in Devon. A brief visit.
An unexpected visitor at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2010…. John Cooper Clarke, who made an appearence at the Tom Hoblyn show garden, with a new poem.
