For almost 40 years I have photographed and written -
photographed industry, tourism, landscape.....
and written about my abiding passion for landscape and trees in particular.
I have travelled throughout the UK to photograph many of the country’s greatest and
rarest trees as well as a huge diversity of woodlands, building up my library of photographs -
over 300,000 - to make a comprehensive collection of tree related images.I have also
been fortunate to travel to some beautiful places across the world.
I am an avid collector, particularly of archive images - trees, naturally,
but also anything unusual that stimulates my imagination.
With my partner Jan Trewin, we run Pearson Bark Cards, a greetings and
postcard business. (click on the logo, left, to go to the website)
I frequently give illustrated tree-related lectures, ranging from small groups in village halls up to
The British Museum, Kew Gardens and Hay Festival.
Jan and I live happily on our small holding in Herefordshire, with two Scottie dogs and one cat –
our daughters, Rowan and Eleanor, now grown and flown.
I am passionate about my traditional orchard with its fine old trees, with its cultural and botanical significance in an ever-changing landscape.
