Sarah is a professional garden and plant photographer, her career spanning 20 years has taken her across the UK, Europe and the Americas, working with world class magazines and publishers. She is a regular contributor to Gardeners’ World magazine, where she works throughout the gardening year with the presenters and production team from the BBC series.
Sarah is one of a handful of photographers who is lucky enough to work with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) for the coverage of their annual shows. She also enjoys the title of Associate Photographer for the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. During her travels she has had the privilege of meeting some brilliant and passionate plant specialists, garden designers and garden owners. She also frequently works with other magazine titles such as RHS The Garden, The English Garden, Gardens Illustrated, House & Garden and Country Living.
Sarah’s fascination with wildflowers really took hold back in 2005, when she collaborated on the illustrated compendium Wild Flowers of Britain and Ireland. She became fascinated by their hardiness, tenacity and the enviable way they could so easily adapt to their environment. A project spanning two years, many days were spent working with botanists, seeking out a wide range of British native flora in their natural environment, frequently in challenging weather conditions. Part of the fun was finding ways to photograph a particular plant to really show its character and beauty. Sarah's friendly nature and ability to help photographers get the best from their cameras, from DSLRs to mobile phones, make her a firm favourite with guests on her tours.
In recent years Sarah relocated from London to the North Kent coast, where she has made the ‘Garden of England’ her home. Any spare time is taken up with long-distance cycling, or the ongoing battle to grow vegetables on her allotment.
