Ever wondered how to click that winning shot of your client’s garden with the light falling perfectly on the swaying grasses? And no, one does not usually just happen to be there at that moment!

Come and learn how to create that magic from David Perry - photographer, plant enthusiast and storyteller extraordinaire. David will share his tips and tricks, coach us to frame a garden scene and teach us to edit the photos to create a professional shot!

David is an inspirational teacher and a captivating storyteller, with a keen knack for observation and a distinct twinkle in his eye. His reverence for gardens, flowers and the gardeners who tend them is apparent in the pictures he makes and his playful, sometimes irreverent manner of speaking about them keeps audiences on the edge of their seats.

David’s work has been featured on the cover of Fine Gardening, Sunset, This Old House Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens, American Rose, Flower Magazine, Leaf Magazine, Garden Design, Pacific Horticulture, Northwest Horticulture and Cut Flower Quarterly.

David is the photographer and co-creator of The 50 Mile Bouquet (St. Lynn’s Press, 2012), with award-winning author, Debra Prinzing and was a principal photographer for John J. Albers’ book, Gardening for Sustainability (Vista Gardens Press, 2014).

David also teaches photography workshops around the country and offers classes in photography and storytelling currently through Bellevue College and through The Center for Urban Horticulture at University of Washington Botanic Gardens.

See David’s work featured on the cover of the latest issue of Fine Gardening and by Fine Gardening at this year’s NW Flower and Garden Show.
