2019 in Pictures & a Look Forward to 2020

2019 in Pictures from Marionseye

I last wrote a newsletter in February, maybe you haven’t noticed but here I am again, here are a few highlights from my work in 2019…

I won a tour behind the scenes at Westonbirt Arboretum with Director Andrew Smith and photographed the acers in Autumn which were spectacular.


One of my commissioned images for the Woodland Trust’s Tree of the Year.
A cheesy grin at winning an RHS Silver Gilt Medal at the Botanical Art & Photography Show this summer for the ‘Diversity of Beech Trees‘ portfolio.


Community Art Project with Ormiston Rivers Academy, working on a 3 week photography project on multiple exposures & creative photography.
Two Rivers aerial photography collection for Burnham Art Trail, full gallery here.


Works in touring exhibitions with International Garden Photographer of the Year and Celebrating Our Oaks which have been visiting gardens and arboretums around the UK. Images also appeared in these two books.
