About Molly Hollman

I'm a teacher and photographer from the village of St Nicholas at Wade near Canterbury in Kent and love all things nature from landscape to macro. I shoot with Sony, and many vintage lenses. 


I have been a Music and English teacher for many years, but originally trained as an artist.  Fifteen years ago I took up photography and have hugely enjoyed it ever since. About five years ago I went part time, which enabled me to pursue photography professionally on the days that I did not teach; whilst originally I was booked for weddings and portraiture, I have now mainly put those genres to one side to focus on my flower, plant and garden photography.   Three years ago I won a National Sony photography competition (and a camera) for my photos of flowers and insects; I have now switched almost fully to photographing the natural world – I spend at least one day a week in a public garden photographing the features of the seasons and plants and flowers.   In 2020 I was a finalist in the Garden Photographer of the Year and won Image of the Year in the Flora and Insects category with The Guild of Photographers. This April I am a finalist in the British Photography Awards also.   I write occasional articles for magazines such as Amateur Photographer about photography and hope to offer more in the future specifically relating to garden photography. I exhibit regularly, in regional exhibitions and galleries, and sell professionally printed cards to local shops and gardens.   I am passionate about photographing flowers, plants and gardens at all times of the year and believe that encouraging others to visit gardens as a result of seeing my photos and writing can only be a good thing, and in particular can make a real difference to mental health.
