Julie Skelton is a Surrey-based, full-time professional garden photographer. Inspired by light that picks out the texture and form of plants, she firmly believes in the mental and physical benefits of spending time in green spaces. Julie comes from a teaching and training background, as well as having spent many years in portrait and event photography. Her elegant, light-filled photographic work has been internationally published in a variety of media. She was listed by Horticulture Week in October 2020 as one of the UK's "most influential garden photographers". Recent commissions have included the National Garden Scheme, Gaze Burvill, David Austin Roses, and a number of private gardens, vineyards and woodland.
In her spare time, Julie is distance-learning RHS Horticulture Level 2 with the Royal Botanical Gardens Edinburgh. She enjoys music, hill walking, sketching, and an ongoing search for the best tea & cake in the UK. Favourite plants to grow in her own garden: peas, blueberries, dahlias, hostas, rudbeckia and anemones. Favourite season: late summer.
