Gardeners use a palette of plants and hardscape elements to create works of art for their enjoyment or to share with friends, neighbors, or the public. In the process we develop a mental picture of what our gardens look like and sometimes miss other ways of seeing. Join us as freelance editorial photographer, Mark Turner shares his insights into garden photography, inspiring gardeners and garden lovers alike to see their gardens in new ways as they learn basic photographic techniques. Mark specializes in botanical subjects, especially Northwest gardens and wildflowers. He is the photographer of the award-winning Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest.
