Autumn Colours


I thought that myself and Jack could take Bobby down the woods to  see all the colours of autumn, as its such a colourful time of the year.  I also thought it would be nice to have some photos of Bobby and Jack together as Jack is growing up quick and Bobby is ten now.

Thinking what you would like to do and actually doing it are completely different! Your own child and dog in one shot is not easy at all but I managed it, and I was very pleased with result.

Dog Grooming

The Guild Of Photographers


Last month I joined The Guild of Photographers as well as being a helpful organisation for photographers they run a monthly photo competition called "Image of The month". The idea is that you enter three images into one of the four categories, if you get an award with any images you entered you get points which go towards the title "Photographer of The Year" within the Guild.

I thought I would have a go at the competition so I entered three images last month and OMG!!  I got a Bronze Bar with Misty the working English Setter.

 Think I will try again next month!

8th June - 12th June

The Kennel Club Working Gundog Tests

Held at The Chatsworth Estate, Derbyshire


My first time as a photographer for the Kennel Club, and what a great experience it was.

The first day Wednesday the 8th was the Gundog training day, I was photographing everything from retrieves to water tests. The next two days Thursday and Friday was the International Retriever Team Event. The Saturday morning my job was the Novice Spaniel test then in the afternoon the HPR water test. Sunday I got the Spaniel Open test which is a big test and lasted all day.

I had a fantastic time over the five days and was in a privileged place being able to see all the other gundog breeds work including Labradors, Spaniels and HPR's along side the Judges.
