Garden and Landscape Architecture Photographer Susan Seubert in Portland Oregon

One of my first assignments was for Garden Design Magazine back in 1998.  It was shooting a story about a landscape designer in Los Angeles named Chris Rosmini.  She not only had an extraordinary garden in the middle of the city, but she also had amazing collections of things.  Suitcases, alabaster statues, and other ephemera were strewn through her three bungalows.  Last summer I was asked by Portland Monthly Magazine to shoot a series of front yard gardens. The assignment was not nearly the deep investigation of space that the Rosmini story was, but fun and a way to learn about garden design from a completely different vantage point.  Here is the story which is running in the April 2010 issue.

The images were made with a Hasselblad Camera shooting with Kodak 160VC film and a few of the pictures were made with the Canon 5D Mark II with a 24-105mm Lf/4 IS USM lens.
