Andy Small is a flower, nature and landscape photographer and workshop tutor for the Royal Horticultural Society.
Andy studied Fine Art. He photographs dramatic close up portraits of nature; particularly flowers, and landscapes. His work has become known for its modern graphic style and striking use of colour. His Fine Art background meant he spent as much time painting and drawing as he did developing his photography and this has had a profound influence on his style. Andy’s images are described as being “very painterly” in their appearance, he has become one of the UK’s most original flower photographers.
“The natural world is my lifelong passion and provides inspiration for my drawing, painting and photography. The macro lens is like a window that transports me into another world. In this place I observe details, shapes and patterns that are not usually seen even though most of the subjects are right under our noses.
“I am fascinated by the intricate structure and design found in nature and my photography celebrates this diverse but orderly world that sometimes goes unnoticed.” Andy Small
Since he and his wife designed their first garden, flowers and plants have become the inspiration for his art. They now have a very prolific cottage garden which provides him with most of his subject matter.
