Garden Photographer & Plant Hunter with nursery for professional garden photography

In my nursery I produce annually about 10,000 plants in pots for high-quality garden and plant photos. My outdoor photo studio is about 7,000 square meters and divided into different theme gardens. The plants are temporarily decorated with scenes (for example, accessories, fences, tools, art and others) and garden scenes are created for taking pictures.

In addition, I have a large network of private gardens, nurseries and garden centers that I visit regularly.

I am glad to make your personal requests and individual ideas for photos come true. Just let me know what you have in mind.

  • portraits of flowers and plants (with scientific names)
    • perennial plants and outdoor ornamental plants
    • woody plants (trees, shrubs, conifers and pinales)
