Welcome to Jill Swainson Photography

Landscape, Travel and Golf Course Photography


I have been a freelance photographer and writer – specialising in travel, gardens, golf courses, and wine – since 1986. I trust that the passion and fascination I have for these subjects is apparent in my work.

The magnificence and splendour of nature is all around us. If I can portray something of that beauty, draw attention to it and share it with others, I have achieved my aim. Photography is about capturing a subject in the moment, a dazzling moment which is beyond man’s creation. I very much hope that my photographs will inspire you, as the subjects have inspired me.

My Work

I travel extensively in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, especially France, Spain and Ireland, and use a medium-format Hasselblad camera. I supply magazines, newspapers, book/calendar/card publishers, tour operators and picture libraries with digital images and transparencies.

I also sell cards, coasters, placemats, calendars, signed limited-edition artpaper and canvas prints of my work. I undertake company and private commissions (gardens, houses, favourite golf-course holes, clubhouses, hotels, pubs, scenes, etc. – please see Prints for further details).
