Tom Hoblyn as hands on craftsman…building a bridge in his garden in Suffolk! Pleased to see this portrait being used in the publicity material for his ‘Majlis Garden’ at The Chelsea Flower Show this year.
Gone to seed – Aquilegia vulgaris or Granny’s Bonnet. A self seeded plant found in my garden.
Always surprised how far and wide the interest in English gardens is. Nice to see Yvonne Marks’ garden at Crowmash, Kent, appear in Hungary.
It’s always a privilege to get into the Chelsea Flower Show at 5:30am before the crowds. The stunning David Harber and Savills Garden designed by Nic Howard at Chelsea Flower Show today. So lucky with the light this morning! Photos for Gardeners’ World Magazine. Full set of photos can be seen on the Gardeners’ World website

Snowdrops for a winter garden – Galanthus plicatus ‘Bayhlam’ and Galanthus ‘Wasp’
From the archive – For What Car magazine, 1986. We borrowed the ‘new’ Renault Savanna from the Paris Motor Show as it closed on the first day and did night shots around the city with two other cars. Ended up doing this dawn shot as a last ditch effort to get a cover before returning the car to the show at 8am for the second day. A deadline dreamed up by someone still tucked up in bed! The final cover and layout, from What Car? December 1986.
Sorting through some old contact sheets….c1986, Pendine Sands. I think this sums up pretty much every car photoshoot I did in Wales. Art Director Nick Dixon on the left, me loading film. I also remember being accosted by the MOD Police for straying onto the beach on a red flag. They confiscated film on the grounds that my photos could have captured missiles being fired out to sea. These were sent back to us after they were processed….as the images showed nothing more than run of the mill hatchbacks in very wet sand!
