Ian Thwaites Photography | About
I am an International Garden Photographer of the Year award winning botanical photographer with a specialist knowledge of cacti and succulent plants. Many of my images capture the natural beauty of my subjects whether in a formal garden, their natural environment or as a simple portrait. I am a member of the Garden Media Guild, Professional Garden Photographers Association and an elected official of the British Cactus and Succulent Society.

Many of my popular images are abstracts that focus on a specific feature of my subject. I enjoy capturing structure and form in my photography and hope to draw the viewer into appreciating the intricacies of the natural world.

I enjoy growing a vast array of plants and can usually be found pottering in the garden or greenhouse with either a camera, a watering can or a knife ready to take a cutting.
