I love photographing orchids - they are wonderful as models for flower portraiture. I spent quite a few hours browsing through amazing exhibits at the RHS London International Orchids Show last year in order to find my perfect model.

I prefer to concentrate on a single flower by isolating it within an unidentifiable space, in order to highlight its own beauty. The goal is always to encourage the viewer to admire the details of my models, which might not be obvious from at first glance.


Highly Commended - Monochrome
