English Holly (Ilex aquifolium) is a symbol synonymous with Christmas. It is also a symbol of defense and sometimes the wood of the Holly is used to create chess pieces. It is an evergreen shrub whose winter berries are a valuable food source for birds and other animals. To create my photographs, I employ a method of 'camera-less' photography in the form of the flatbed scanner attached to my computer. The lighting effect of the scanner means that very little light enhancement post-production is required in my photographs. I have some control over their composition; which I employ in the way I place the plants on the scanner bed, and by digitally cutting and re-placing certain elements of the plant post-production. This way, I am able to create a botanically accurate, yet stylised final image of the plant This is a giclée print on Hahnemühle Photo Rag, a matte paper which adds a velvety depth to the black of the photograph. This is a signed limited edition of 4 plus artist proof. £25 of each sale will be donated to conservation charities Plant Life and Butterfly Conservation UK. + This photograph comes un-framed + I recommend using non-reflective glass when framing

I am a London based botanical photo-artist born in Kent, ‘The Garden of England’ in 1989. I have exhibited and won a medal for my botanical photography with the Royal Horticultural Society, the most prestigious award for botanical art in the United Kingdom. To create my photographs, I employ an improvised technique of ‘camera-less’ photography, using the flatbed scanner as a lens. Using a camera-less technique echoes the traditional methods used for the very first botanical photographs taken in the early part of the 19th century, such as the cyanotype photogram. I have always been passionate about conservation and the natural environment, and the botanical world never ceases to amaze me. My commitment to the natural world means that I work with a fine art printing service that use plastic-free and 100% recyclable packaging. I also pledge to donate £25 of each sale I make to Plant Life and Butterfly Conservation UK. Both these conservation charities work to protect wildlife and the environments which they thrive in. I also take commissions, depending on the availability of the flora requested.
