Mastering Flower Photography
... Requires Theory and A Lot'a 'Soul'!

 It's expected that a photographer studies and practices photography theory... as well as automatically knowing all the bells and whistles on a camera.

But, there's so much more to nature photography than theory. There are the stories inside of us that we want to come through in our photos to touch people who see our images. To infuse those stories into our images, we need an emotional connection to our subjects and the experience of being an intricate part our natural world.

"In life and in photography, a closer look at the familiar
can often reveal truth and beauty." ~ Jim Brandenburg

To photograph nature, we have to go out with an aware, inquisitive mind.  And If you're looking for a more peaceful, connected life, flower photography may be exactly what you're searching for.

Mastering the art of photography requires energy and a commitment to learning. And even though you have to understand the theory and technical aspects, those are only part of what makes great photographs. The rest is intangible, intuitive... and also requires focus and consistent practice!


Yellow Painterlyl Pansies

The weather isn't always fair and warm. Sometimes, it's cold, wet, and uncomfortable. Set up a simple Home Studio to stay high and dry. I have some fun tips, tricks and advice for that. 

These darling pansies were from the garden shop down the road. Perfect indoor subjects when the weather was windy and wet.

If you like the "painterly" look that I love so much, and learning some Photoshop sounds exciting, stick around. I'm going to teach you to turn your photos into 'paintings',

Browse my shop and get an idea from my photographs of what you can do to make your flower photography look unique.


What You'll Find Here...

  • Flower photography tips and hints - take amazing photos that tell the stories you actually wanted to tell. Photos that get a "Wow, did you really take that?"

  • The Spiritual Garden... How many places on earth are as peaceful and as close to heaven as a garden? Maybe you call that energy "God", or maybe you use a different name. To me, it's Spirit. When I'm in a garden, that energy hovers all around me like a comforting blanket that I wear the rest of my day.

  • Special tips on photographing butterflies. Butterflies have been called "flying flowers" or my favourite nickname "flutterbys". No garden can exist without the butterflies, the bees and the multitudes of pollinators. Include them in your flower photography.

We have to become more aware about the poisons we're feeding this earth and how they're killing off the pollinators, like the butterflies and bees, which are responsible for our diverse food supply.

Get your camera and get acquainted with these incredibly intriguing animals.

Flower Photography
... Medicine for the Soul

The process of flower photography is MEDITATIVE. Everything in the garden... the birds and their songs, the water features and garden art, the plants themselves, create an environment that tickles and exercises all your senses.

It's a slow, peaceful experience.

Maybe you can't get to a garden today. No worries, there's always a flower nearby. Even one tiny flower is a captivating subject through a camera lens.  A delicate little flower pushing up through the concrete and reaching for the sun has its own story of strength and courage!

Namaste,
