Adrian Houston

Known for his warm, atmospheric images that fire the imagination, renowned photographer Adrian Houston’s works have been exhibited at such leading institutions as The National Gallery and The Royal Academy of Arts.

His exceptional eye for detail, as well as his meticulous, creative and relaxed approach, has earned Adrian a number of high-profile portrait commissions, among them Luciano Pavarotti, the Dalai Lama and Jim Carrey.

His groundbreaking images for the Mr & Mrs Smith series of travel guides helped put the company on the map and Adrian has produced a total of eight publications for this now globally recognised brand.

Other books include an architectural history of the London Olympic Stadium commissioned by Atkins (the Games’ official engineering and design provider) and a coffee table publication on behalf of leading interior designers such as Anouska Hempel.

Adrian’s passion is conservation. His work has seen him travel to some of the world’s most unexplored and inhospitable terrains, with his powerful photographs subsequently gracing everything from advertising campaigns to magazine covers. In addition, the stunning images that resulted from him witnessing the eruption of Mount Kilauea on Hawaii’s Big Island were used to memorable effect in one of the Discovery Channel’s highest rating documentaries – Discovery People.

Adrian has enjoyed several high-profile exhibitions, including a fund-raising initiative for Guide Dogs for the Blind at The Haunch of Venison at The Royal Academy of Arts showcasing his customarily innovative portraiture, on this occasion celebrity figures with their canine companions.

Visions of Battersea Power Station, a series of photographs shot in 2000 before the iconic building was re-developed, were exhibited to great acclaim at the new Battersea Power Station development in November 2017.

Adrian’s most recent exhibition, A Portrait of the Tree, took place at The Unit London Gallery in Hanover Square in autumn 2018. Featuring images and accompanying stories by such diverse individuals as Sir Richard Branson, Goldie Hawn, Raymond Blanc and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason, this much lauded retrospective helped raise awareness about the importance of our trees, the environment and climate change.

Plans are currently underway for the exhibition to tour globally.

Action Oak

Action Oak is a new initiative launched at RHS Chelsea Flower Show May 2018. Its roots were in a plant health and biosecurity meeting hosted at Highgrove in 2016, where representatives across many sectors identified a need to act to protect oak trees from both current and impending threats to their health and survival.

It has brought together representatives from charities, academia, landowners and government to develop a coordinated plan to identify and tackle some of the issues facing our iconic native oak trees.
