Emma was honoured to be invited to present two workshops at the Marlborough Garden Festival this November.  She gave a talk and slideshow on the history of floral photography, from a fine art perspective.

 Emma also met some wonderful people including fellow workshoppers Lynda Hallinan, Michael McCoy (Australia), and Julie Biuso.  "Thanks for having me Blenheim!"
