Fiona's early childhood was spent in Indonesia and Borneo, surrounded by tropical rainforest. When she was 12, her family moved to a windswept house beside the sea in Scotland. “These diverse landscapes have shaped the way I look at nature,” she says. After studying history and history of art at the University of Edinburgh, she decided to become a garden photographer when she moved to the countryside in the late 1990s. She taught herself garden photography and studied garden design and horticulture. “Understanding how plants behave is just as important to me as knowing which f-stop to use,” she explains. Fiona's work has been published in House & Garden, Garden Design Journal and Gardens Illustrated. She is a member of the Garden Photographers' Association.
“I arrived at Kew to photograph the Japanese Landscape just as the sun was coming up. I was completely alone and there wasn't a breath of wind, but I had to work quickly before the breeze sprang up. It was a garden photographer's dream come true.”
