I’m lucky to have a pair of dogs at home that are my, sometimes reluctant, models for new locations. They do love water though and any chance of exploring a new forest walk is going to be taken up with happy giggles from them both.
I’m fortunate that as a dog owner, I’ve got a pair of crazy Cocker Spaniels on tap to photograph whenever I need them. But it also means that I put in a lot of time to capture images of them to remember them by. After all, we never know when we might lose them forever.
Although my family had dogs when we were children, and after I left for University, they were always my parent’s dogs rather than my own. My relationship with them was very much like them being part of a busy family unit and companions to all of us.
Whilst I do love my outdoor sessions, both at my favourite country park or other locations of my clients’ choice, I am fortunate to have a dedicated dog photography studio.
I really do love my job and the business I have been so lucky to build up over the last eight years or so. Getting to meet my clients and appreciating their love for their dogs is what makes my hours of lying in the mud and being trampled by dogs such an enjoyable career.

An insight into a lot of the questions asked as to why it is important to select the right professional dog photographer for you and your dogs.
Those first few days, and weeks, of having a new puppy in your life is something we sometimes aren’t ready for.
