Get all the best work in one place

This website serves as my calling card, place to share my favorite photographs from many years as a garden photographer. It has been a thrilling ride, learning from some of the absolute best gardeners, designers, and landscape architects in the business. I have been honored and humbled to visit many of the best gardens in America as I have learned to celebrate plants as found there.
I take the fine art of garden photography quite seriously, and feel a responsibility to educate, even change the aesthetic of what we think of in a garden photograph. Good photos lead to good gardens, and with my work, I want to promote success and sustainability through the media.
I hope you will be entertained here on my personal blog where I talk about my personal art I call “Mental Seeds”, occasionally rant about odd occurrences I can only do here in the ‘privacy’ of my personal website, and review my garden photography workshops. In the Learning Center of my more public, business site PhotoBotanic you will find a much deeper blog, a living book constantly updated in the Learning Center, as well as licensing links to my stock photography, a Store where I sell my books, e-books, iBooks, fine art prints, and merchandise.
I love hearing from you. Please Comment about my garden pictures . . .
