WB: Orchids - Various

The letters WB signify White Background, a reference to the backlit white acrylic panel used. This isolates a subject from any confusion of surroundings and also emphasises a degree of translucence of the subject

Wild orchids have long been a special area of both my photography and academic work. In 1983 I published my first book - Wild Orchids of Britain & Europe with Anthony Huxley. It became a standard work for the next decade since then, I have photographed many more orchids both European terrestrials and tropical species from around the world, written numerous articles and led countless tours for those keen on finding and photographing. The galleries show only a small selection of the material on file - please contact us if there are any species, subspecies or varieties you require.
