Pet Photographer Lesley ODonnell Wins Professional Awards

Lesley O'Donnell - Monday, September 23, 2013
So excited to have won two awards at the Australian Professional Photography Awards (AIPP) judged in Melbourne last weekend.

Thanks to my wonderful clients Susan and Steve and their obedient Border Collie Holly and to Callum and Ken and their little Australian Terrier Belle. Without you this would not have been possible.

This image won a SILVER WITH DISTINCTION award at the recent AIPP awards. I love how Holly has such control over her desire to scoop up her ball. It is really impressive that she waits until she is told she can have it.

This other image of concentration scored a SILVER AWARD at the Australian Professional Photography awards. 

You can only enter four images in total so for two of them to come up trumps was a thrill for me.

That's fantastic Lesley. Well done!

I am so pleased that Holly has been part of your wonderful achievement. I also love the photo of Belle. What a great shot of a gorgeous little dog.

Kind regards,

Pet Photography Melbourne - The Tall and The Small

Lesley O'Donnell - Monday, August 05, 2013

Two of my favourite things in life include photographing relationships and having clients who are willing to play and have fun. I also love using grimy inner city locations as the setting for my pet and portrait photography. On this shoot I won the trifecta.

I also love scruffy dogs and these two dogs, Belle and her much taller companion Islay, were delightfully scruffy in a groomed kind of way.

The funny thing for me was that many years ago I lived opposite a park and used to see this guy exercising his Great Dane and much smaller Jack Russell there. I always thought these two dogs together would make a great photo but regretfully never commanded the courage to go over and ask.

Anyway, all these years later I met the guy I had seen so many times in the past. Callum now has another big dog, this time a friendly, forever smiling Scottish Deerhound. His partner Ken has the smaller golden Australian Terrier so at last I got to photograph the tall and the small together. It was fun!
