Robert Hall

Robert studied Mass Media Communication at Aston and Creative Photography and Film Making under Paul Hill and Tom Cooper at Trent and Derby before moving to London in 1977 to work as a freelance photographer. Melody Maker, New Musical Express, Sounds, Spare Rib and a fledgling Time Out all published his work along with the established and independent Record companies. Robert wrote a weekly column for the Daily News during the late 1980's and concentrated his experiences into developing Hall's Garden Supplies, established in 1952 by his father Gerald Hall. Robert launched the first version of GardenSite in 1999. Today it is established as one of the leading authorities in its sector and still follows his original maxim of offering the same level of personal service online as in store. His purchase of the adjacent New Oscott Tavern in 2010 has enabled the original garden centre to develop into a 2 acre show site. Robert is married to Kay and they have 2 daughters, Frankie is in her final year at Exeter University and Gabrielle has just started at Sheffied University. His work has been published locally and nationally over the last 30 years. Follow his advice, tips and traumas here.
