Nocturnal Arboreal

Last Edited:
An ongoing body of work that stems from my obsession with creative lighting and nocturnal photography, featuring examples of trees found in the British countryside.
  • Nocturnal Arboreal
    night portraits of british trees
  • “I must admit I was never really that interested in photographing trees, that is until one night I

    illuminated one, then everything changed…..”


    I began seeking out interesting trees that I could photograph and found myself drawn to

    man-made environments of parklands and country estates. In these controlled areas where

    trees were often planted for their aesthetic or pictorial qualities, a combination of artificial and natural light was used to portray the tree in a similarly controlled manner.


    These trees, the ancestors of those we now see alongside motorways or protruding from the

    meagre openings in the surface of a car park, have been altered by the process of lighting & photography. They are the real yet slightly unnatural features placed in an environment shaped and controlled by man, which due to the passage of time, we now perceive as being a totally

    natural landscape.
