Crufts 2016 has just finished. Although I was unable to attend this year I watched as much of the coverage on Channel 4 as possible. The Agility Finals on Sunday were particularly exciting. My ambition is to one day qualify in agility to compete there. Its is always good to have a dream…..
As you know my true passion is photographing dogs, that’s not to say I don’t enjoy photographing other subjects I do, but from as far back as I can remember having a dog of my own was a dream. I now have three! I am lucky to be able to combine my love of dogs and photography together.
So I am thrilled to be able to say along my journey of dog photography I have captured a few of the winners at this years Crufts!
The first ever commissioned job I had was photographing a litter of Border Collies in 2009. Nothing like a challenge. Eight feisty pups all eager to do everything but what we wanted them to do! We had to resort to having them held for individual pictures. Who would have thought that I would be photographing a superstar!
Congratulations to this beautiful girl Scandal.
Open Large Agility Winner 2016 to add to her numerous outstanding awards.
Scandal with her Litter siblings 2009, boy did we have fun getting this shot. I wonder what the other pups have got up to?
Those of you that follow my blog know that I recently got two Mini American Shepherds.
Earlier in the year the breeder of my dogs and her friend came to see me to get some photos done in the Studio. It was quite a crazy session with all three dogs. They are a breed I have never captured before and certainly a breed that would win my heart over. The Lagotto Romagnolo.
I had no idea that the dogs had qualified for Crufts. So hugely impressed when I found out that Mum on the right won the Veteran Bitch Class at 12 years of age!
