About Us

Richard Watson and Simon Hansford met at Wye College in the Autumn of 1991 and discovered a shared passion for the outdoors and photography (and the occasional bottle of port!). Combining these elements has led to many adventures ever since.

Our respective careers in conservation and gardening have allowed us to concentrate on garden, landscape and wildlife images in the UK. This has given us privileged access to some of the top nature sites and gardens in East Anglia and the South West. We tend to focus more on the smaller details within the landscape with macro photography being a major component of this.

All images are taken on a variety of Nikon digital cameras and Nikon or Sigma lenses. Originally taking photographs on black and white film we progressed to colour slide film and more recently digital imaging. Whilst we have embraced digital technology we strive to capture the image in camera with minimal post capture manipulation.

Images have been published by the National Trust, Wildlife Trusts, Royal Horticultural Society, River Cottage, Gardens Illustrated magazine, Homes & Gardens & various websites.

We now have a range of greeting cards available. Please email us for more information.
