Nicola Stocken

Nicola Stocken is both photographer and writer, conveying the beauty of gardens and plants through words and pictures that appear in publications all over the world, as well as in greetings cards and calendars. For some 30 years, she has photographed widely throughout the British Isles, meeting the remarkable people behind some of the loveliest gardens, specialist nurseries and unique plant collections.

Her love of plants is second only to that of photographing a garden for the first time, of capturing its different moods as the light shifts from the golden hours of dawn to the deepening pinks of sunset. In her spare time, she plays flute, runs, paddleboards and attempts to control her own garden beside the River Thames.
