It’s not news to anyone that 2016 was widely considered to be godawful and most people couldn’t wait for it to end. I, on the other hand, got to meet all these (and many other) awesome furry creatures last year, so I have very little to complain about!

I’m really excited for what 2017 holds and I’m looking forward to my 8th year in business as a specialist pet photographer – creating memories, helping dogs find homes and fundraising … plus a whole heap of puppy cuddles if I can help it.

If you’d like your dog to appear in my 2017 round up let’s chat, I know how to make that dream a possibility 😀 If you enjoy this slideshow you’ll love my book, Tails of Sydney. You can buy a copy either from my website or from Rupert&Dora in Paddington. I’ve received lots of 5 star reviews from other buyers, so if you have any doubts go to the product page and have a read.

For file size reasons it wasn’t possible to include every dog that I photographed in this clip, so please don’t feel left out if your dog isn’t one of the few hundred that isn’t featured.

At this time of year I like to sit down and take a look back at all the furry faces I was lucky enough to photograph in the previous twelve months. It’s a time when I reflect on the highlights of the year and set goals for the following year. 2015 was a very difficult year for me personally and I struggled with some health issues, took two trips to the ER and had a bodgy knee that saw me having to take a lengthy break from shooting while I recovered from surgery. That was definitely a low point, but things have been very much brighter in the latter part of the year and I’m heading into 2016 with shades donned! (Please get the 80’s song reference!) 2015 wasn’t all bad though, despite the hurdles I still managed to donate over 50% of my time to charitable causes. I directly helped 78 dogs and puppies to find homes, fostered two puppies and donated vouchers, photos and graphic design services to ultimately help even more animals in need. It’s my private and commercial clients that enable me to continue to offer this invaluable pro-bono service to charities so I’m eternally grateful for their continued support. In 2016 I hope to step up my charity work with my Tails of Sydney fundraiser coffee table book. Applications just opened and I can.not.wait to start shooting!

After much agonising I’ve narrowed my gallery down to 84 images that I consider to be my best dog photos of 2015. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Several of the photos in this gallery are also in my charity fundraiser calendar and diary. You can still buy them online here and from Rupert&Dora in Paddington.

Saturday was too hot to do anything other than stay indoors in the air-con, so I spent the day compiling my “best of 2014″ gallery. What a year it was – I photographed 128 dogs, 42 puppies, four cats and a goat! Highlights of 2014 included teaching two sold out pet photography workshops, fundraising $4460 for the groups I work with, appearing on Channel 7’s The Morning Show and being in The Huffington Post twice. 2015 has some big boots to fill!

I eased myself back into work today by going through all my photos from last year and compiling this “best of 2013” gallery. It’s been heaps of fun and I have nothing but happy memories looking back at all the furry creatures I got to photograph last year. I hope you all enjoy it!

I posted my best of 2011 around this time last year and it was really popular, so I hereby declare it a “thing” and, in keeping with tradition, here’s this year’s “best of” – enjoy!
