My passion for photography started very early on, at school, when I had my first SLR film camera and I learned the basics of
exposure and composition on a fully manual camera and mostly by trial and error. After studying Mechanical engineering applied in the
use of lasers and optics, I worked in the photonics industry for over 20 years which included traveling the world to practice scientific
photography and high speed imaging using pulsed lasers for illumination.
It wasn’t until I took a career break in the year 2000, to travel the world, that I seriously started to delve into more personal and
artistic themes of photography, so I spent a year immersed in travel photography documenting a once in a lifetime experience using a
trusty Nikon F80 film camera. After the travel break I became expert in post processing digital image files and as a Marketing Director
took on all commercial photographic, web and graphic design tasks as required.
In 2011 I gave up the intensive travel schedule to work on a freelance basis and was finally able to settle in Oxford and keep companion
dogs which had never previously been possible due to my travel schedule. I am now unashamedly obsessed with my beloved canine
companions, so of course my two Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers (Roxy and Jester) quickly became my favourite models.
I turned my photographic skills towards a subject I am passionate about and honed my skills further to master the techniques of
portrait and sports photography essential in dog photography and my previously learned skills in digital post processing and Photoshop
have been further enhanced.
Many of my friends and fellow dog owners started commenting on how much they liked my photography and I started taking more and
more photographs of dogs every week. So I finally decided to pursue my new addiction, Dog photography and animal photography,
specifically as a niche career.
My familiarity, rapport and patience with dogs allows me to work with the multitude of canine characters and capture their ‘essence’ and
particularly I like to capture or choreograph interesting action portraits where it’s all about having fun!
Why not contact me and arrange a convenient photo session where I will capture and then create memorable images to last you a lifetime.
