Better By Degrees

With every day, PhotoBotanic gets better; and I am grateful for patient members who are helping me improve.  All the experts told me issues would arise that you never expected, and you just have to launch the site and adjust.

Welcome!

Photo of Saxon HoltHello !  I am Saxon Holt and I have created PhotoBotanic as a place to share my 30 years as a garden photographer.  It’s all about celebrating plants through photography and I want you to find that joy too.  Poke around.  Learn what I have learned and see gardens through a photographer’s eye.

All photos are available to license and if you don’t find what you need I will find it for you: contact the staff directly.  I especially invite you to explore the Learning Center as a living book where fresh content is constantly added.  You create the subject by how you follow the tags.

In the membership area of the Learning Center I teach my garden photography workshops, offering lessons and feedback to those who follow this adventure into new publishing.  I appreciate your support.
