I was honoured to be invited to present two workshops at the Marlborough Garden Festival this November.  I gave a talk and slideshow on the history of floral photography from a fine art perspective.

Met some wonderful people including fellow workshoppers Lynda Hallinan, Michael McCoy (Australia), and Julie Biuso.

Thanks for having me Blenheim!
