Of Andrea her bio notes:

For over twenty years Andrea Jones has built an international reputation photographing landscape architecture, gardens and plants. The latter being the subject of Andrea’s critically acclaimed book “Plantworlds” (2005). More recently, she travelled throughout the USA and Canada to illustrate “Great Gardens of America” (2009) whilst “The Garden Source” (2012) depicts inspirational ideas for gardens and landscapes. Having illustrated a multitude of garden related books for other authors “The Garden Photography Workshop” is her latest solo book in which she shares her experience and offers tips and techniques for photographing gardens.

Andrea studied art and photography in the late seventies and early eighties in Southern England. In the nineties she was elected a Fellow of the RSA and has since had several successful exhibitions. She works with leading Landscape Architects and Garden Designers worldwide documenting their work, for a multitude of magazines worldwide and also accepts private commissions. Her home is now in Scotland where she is represented by the photo library, Garden Exposures.

Of The Garden Photography Workshop Book, publishers Timber Press note:

One of the most rewarding aspects of gardening is sharing its beauty, both physically with those who visit and virtually with those who only see it on a screen. But capturing a garden’s true essence is difficult, and often the moments worth sharing are ephemeral. In The Garden Photography Workshop, internationally known garden photographer Andrea Jones shares the trade secrets that make her photos sing. You’ll learn the basic photography skills and tips on using a range of camera equipment, covering everything from DSLRs to smartphones and accessories. Profiles of real gardens from around the world exemplify the most common problems a photographer can face, like harsh light, wet weather, and cramped spaces, along with advice and techniques for addressing specific concerns. We live in a photo-driven world, and this helpful guide is a complete tutorial for anyone who wants that world to be filled with beautiful images of gardens and plants.

On that note, huge thanks to the very wonderful team at Timber Press for their help in making this interview happen.
