Behind the Lens

I've enjoyed gardening, orchid growing, and photography for years. A major part of my love of these hobbies is the exchange of plants and sharing photos among family and friends.

Most of the photographs are taken of my orchid collection and garden at home in Chesapeake, Virginia. Other favorite locales for subjects include a farm in Appomattox, Virginia, the Norfolk Botanical Garden, White's Old Mill Garden Center, and local parks where I walk my dogs.

Awards include 1st place in the Macro Photography category at the 19th World Orchid Conference, Miami, 2008.

Enjoy the photos,

John Whistler
