Hello ! 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.
