Progress has been gradual. You can see how far I have got by going to the “Orchids” option on the menu above. As at June 2024 I have nearly 10,000 photos of 3,500 species in over 440 genera, so please also come back later as I get more information uploaded.

Some of my photographs are from displays at various orchid conferences, including each of the last twelve World Orchid Conferences (Tokyo, Auckland, Glasgow, Rio de Janeiro, Vancouver, Kuala Lumpur, Dijon, Miami, Singapore, Johannesburg, Guayaquil and Tainan).

For over 30 years I have been writing a regular monthly article with detailed notes about 17 or more orchids. This is for the Orchid Species Bulletin, which is published by the Orchid Species Society based in Brisbane, Queensland. My article normally comments on the plants displayed at their meetings. Some of my notes for the Orchid Species Bulletin have been turned into Articles with appropriate photos and are shown on the menu link above.

I have also given many talks to orchid societies and others, and more recently these have also been given over Zoom. A selection of talks is listed on my Talks page. Please feel free to contact me, if you want me to give a talk to your organisation.

All my photos now comprise over 6,300 species, in nearly 750 genera, and the list is growing. Many of my photos have appeared in books and magazines.

I should also point out this is only a hobby (some might say an obsession!).  I am not a professional photographer, and fit all this, and growing orchids in my orchid house, in between having a life!

On my links page you will find links to a number of sites, particularly in Australia and New Zealand, which have information about species orchids. I also have links to some conferences, and other sites with orchid species photographs.

By all means contact me, particularly if you have any suggestions or corrections to the information on my site. Bear in mind that all the text and photographs on these pages are copyright. Let me know if you would like to use any of my images.
