About Us

Thank you for visiting my website and for your interest in my photography. I hope you've enjoyed what you have seen so far.

I'm a freelance photographer, having converted a passion into a profession. Sixteen years ago I returned to live in England after a varied and wonderful life travelling the world with my then husband, the late Rodney Calvert, in pursuit of his career in the oil industry as a geophysicist. With my family having flown the nest I was free to devote myself to my passion full time as a professional photographer. My great love for travel and exploration continued, but this time travelling solely in the pursuit of photography. Since my return to England I have ventured out again to  Africa x2 (Zimbabwee, Botswana and Namibia), Antarctica x3, Antigua, Australia,  Cambodia,  Canada (western), China x2 , Croatia, Cyprus, Ecuador,  Egypt, Estonia, Finland x 3, France, Galapagos, Greenland x3, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Madeira, Maldives x3, Mauritius, Morocco, New Zealand, Norway, Northern Canada (including Baffin Island), South America and (Patagonia),  Spain x2,  Spitzbergen x2, Sweden, Thailand, Tobago x3, U.S.A. ( Alaska, Texas & Colorado).   In November/December 2004 I went to Antarctica for the third time. This time to explore the Weddell Sea in an icebreaker and to visit emperor penguin colonies when the chicks were young. It was the highlight of my travel and nature photography career, a trully amazing trip.

Most of my image sales are now through photo agencies and links to these can be found on this site.  My images are marketed through www.gettyimages.com, www.superstock.com ,  www.imagestate.co.uk ,  www.alamy.co.uk , www.stillpictures.com and www.sunshinephoto.nl  

A love for flowers and plants has been with me since I was a small child, then Rosemary Phillips. For some years Amateur Gardening published my images nearly every week and to date I've had 56 front covers, www.ipcmedia.com . My flower and plant images are also sold online from www.flowerphotos.com  and  www.chromazoneflowers.com  

 My work appeared in the `Photography Yearbook' from 1993 until it ceased publication and for a number of years I wrote for the magazine 'Practical Photography'. I am a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and served on the Royal Photographic Society Panel judging Fellowships and Associateships for the Travel Section for 4 years.

I started my photographic career as a landscape, nature and flower photographer but recently I have found I can make more sales by exploring conceptual still-life, food and close-up flower photography so my area of work has shifted primarily to these subjects.

Examples of my best selling work can be found on the 'News and Events' page of my website and this link to Getty Images Getty Images - Search will take you directly to all my images currently with Getty Images where the majority of my sales are made at present.

These three images were recently submitted to Getty Images and each has a link below which will take you directly to the image on the Getty Images website.

A personal note:
I am delighted to say that I have now married Angus Laird and am using his name socially, although my professional name remains as Rosemary Calvert. Sadly my first husband, Rodney Calvert, died after a courageous year long fight with cancer on 22nd November 2007.
