I could not be any more excited to share these photos with you. I suspect that most of the people that follow my work are bull breed fanatics, but I think even these little furballs will be to your liking! Bandit and Shiver are both rescues and I was utterly delighted to hear that their owner is studying to be a dog trainer with the NDTF. Not only are these guys deadset adorable, they’re also socialised, well trained AND do tricks – every photographer’s dream.


Um, “chalk”?!

Oh I do love photographing flying Poms. They’re just so comical.

If these guys look familiar to you, yes, they were on Bondi Vet. They were attacked by two off lead dogs and Shiver nearly died as a result of his injuries. Luckily they’re both ok now and I’m glad I got to meet them and have this session – it was such a pleasure working with these superstars in the making.

On Saturday 13 July 2013 there were rallies held in major cities all over the world against breed specific legislation. I was the official photographer at the Sydney rally and, because of his great temperament, Jackson was invited along as a dog ambassador. We gathered in Hyde Park and marched from there to Martin Place. All the speakers were passionate and inspirational. The audio can be found online here. These are some of my favourite photos from the day.

This is how Jackson spent the whole drive home. Too tired to hold his head up but afraid to lie down in case he missed anything exciting!

For all the non-Facebookers – Jackson has been adopted and is four days into his four week trial period. So far it seems to be working out well, we couldn’t be happier for him.

Because blog posts should always have at least one photo, here’s Bruno in his bow tie from The Sophisticated Pet!

When I saw that this little madam needed foster care I realllllly wanted to take her on, but with Jackson here we’ve no room for any more fosters. I was able to temp care her for a few nights though, so I could do her adoption photos before she went into care. I did it for Bruno as much as myself, cause he just loves his little puppy playmates!

Sega is with Fetching Dogs. She’s not available for adoption yet, but keep an eye on their website for her profile if you’re interested in giving her her forever home.

Firstly, I need to apologise to everyone that’s subscribed to my blog who received a couple of emails of old blog posts this week. I was moving host companies and I guess they were caused by that. Everything should be back to normal now. I hope!!

Kyna’s owner booked her session many months ago, but they live over 8hrs away and it took three trips to Sydney to get a day with no rain. It was third time lucky though, thankfully. I’d never done a shoot in the city before so it was such a joy to have a well trained dog, perfect weather and a great backdrop. We started on Observatory Hill, which is a beautiful park overlooking the city with lush green grass and massive trees.

She’s a massive head-tilter!

From there we made our way down to The Rocks. Kyna had a bit of a lie down there. You can do that when you’re ten years old and only have one hip!

Then we did the obligatory tourist shots in front of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge!

After all that we went back up to the park for a run. She doesn’t let her lack of one hip slow her down at all!

I believe she slept very well that night!
