By submitting images to the EHS, including entries to EHS competitions, the photographer provides the EHS with full usage rights for all images submitted. Copyright remains with the photographer.
Are you a photo enthusiast? Do you enjoy taking flower or garden photos? Do you keep photographic records of your garden? Or do you occasionally get out that old camera and take a snap? Are you interested in sharing with and learning from other photographers? If any of these apply to you, consider joining the EHS Photography Group.
The purpose of the EHS Photography Group is to encourage EHS members to improve their flower and garden photography while taking photographs of EHS events, their own or others` gardens or any other horticultural-related subject and sharing these images with the Gardener`s Gate, the EHS Website and the EHS Photo Archives for publication in a variety of ways and as a lasting record. See our Image Policies (listed in sidebar) for more information.
Through field trips to local garden spots to take photos as well as recording EHS activities and programs, such as the Plant Exchange, EHS City Gardeners' activities, Front Yards in Bloom, the Garden Competition, Open Gardens or even EHS meetings, Photography Group members learn from each other and practice new techniques, with both digital and film cameras.
Photography Group members must be a member in good standing of the EHS.
To participate in the EHS Photography Group, contact the Photography Coordinator, select Photography in the Contact us form.
