Garden photographer Marcus Harpur

Meet Marcus Harpur

Marcus joined his father, Jerry Harpur, to form Harpur Garden Images in 1992 and he has been photographing and writing about gardens ever since.

From his base in Suffolk, Marcus travels around the UK and further afield looking for light, colour, novelty, excellence and character in outdoor spaces.

His pictures have been used in countless magazine articles around the world and numerous books. His book, English Country House Gardens with George Plumptre, won the 2014 Inspirational Book Award at The Garden Media Guild Awards.

Drawn on by capturing the perfect light, he is fascinated by many aspects of gardens and design and in particular, by those gardens which have zing; that special combination of bold and bright colours with dramatic foliage which make plants sing out.

Apart from his publishing work, Marcus enjoys working on private commissions from garden designers and owners.
