John Fielding studied horticulture in Lancashire and at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London. During a career spanning 45 years, he has been actively involved in horticulture including garden design, planting and plant breeding.
John's love of horticulture and artistic flair led him into the world of photography where his scientific knowledge of plants has helped him capture a vast collection of images covering many aspects of plants, gardens and horticulture particularly plant portraits and plant combinations.
John is a member of the RHS Photographic Advisory Committee and the Herbaceous Plant Committee and also involved with a number of specialist horticultural societies. His work has been published in books, magazines and newspapers worldwide for publishers including: Batsford, Dorling Kindersley, Frances Lincoln, Mitchell Beazley (Octopus Publishing Group) and Timber Press. Most recently John produced the "Flowers of Crete" published by R.B.G. Kew as photographer and co-author.
John has lectured for the Mediterranean Garden Society at their AGM in Crete and at the Portugal Branch Spring Conference in 2013. He has, as a photographer led a number of trips to Greece for the Cyclamen Society to record cyclamen in their natural habitat. One of his many interests is a comprehensive collection of Mediterranean and particularly Greek geophytes kept under glass in London.
