I have been shooting pictures since the age of 14 and it has been one of the major interests of my life. While my horticultural photography is best known, it is not at all the limit of what interests me.
Posted here are a small lo-res sample of the more than 10,000 images in my collection (growing every day). Images are available for use in the media at standard rates, and for the preparation of lectures and presentations to various agricultural, corporate and consumer groups. One of my greatest resources is a file of plant ID pictures with a specialty in heirloom vegetables and obscure cut flower varieties (some never seen in the market).
I have not put a lot of time in to formatting and titling the albums below. Let me know what you are looking for and I will let you know if I have it.
I also have a smaller number of "art prints" in both in Black & White and in Color. You can visit my Photo Blogs, Black & White Universe and Music Of The Spheres to see relatively large low-res JPEGS of them.
This is a photographic record of the 1500 square foot kitchen garden I put in while living in Pennsylvania. I thought it might be interesting to follow the instructions in my own book (Straight Ahead Organic) and see how it worked out. I took photos of every step of the process until the day I moved.
This is a collection of garden views from the Intervale in Burlington, Vermont where I used to maintain the research and display gardens for my seed company, The Cook's Garden.
This is the result of turning an abandoned hillside potato field into a farm and garden that was featured in a number of magazines, including Horticulture, which featured it in their November 1995 issue, fifteen years after we first started clearing the land.
Most of these images come from the trial gardens I maintained over the years. These albums are the result of photographing all the accessions in the trial gardens for 2002. Most of what I have is heirlooms; very few hybrids. I also have large numbers of ID shots of other vegetables available with full source information keyed to the accession tag, and a matching shot without the quarter and the tag. I also have a large number of flower shots that I am in the process of digitizing, mostly taken during my annual trips to the Netherlands to attend variety trials.
