What’s the story? Is it a profile of a plant, a person or a place? A whole garden or a how-to? Is the emphasis on design? Horticulture? Environmental concerns? With my training as a painter, deep immersion in horticulture and ecological gardening and experience both writing and photographing, I bring a unique understanding, whatever the story. Although I enjoy working collaboratively with editors, art directors or writers, I can work independently to create thoughtful, carefully composed images that add up to a cohesive story. And I can scout, prep, prop, write and provide accurate and informative captions.
