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 Shots Photography Wins People's Choice Again

Lesley O'Donnell - Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Intimate Moments

I just love this photo. 

To me it evokes so many emotions. I love the intimacy, connection and trust between the subjects, the solitude, the colours and the every drip of water falling from the oar. 

Everyone who sees this photo in my studio responds positively and many stop in front of it to pass comment.

So I am very proud that it was voted this weeks People’s Choice WINNER in an American professional photography competition. 

I have taken out first place two weeks in a row now so am feeling very excited and honoured that so many people have cast their votes in my favour. 

There are three more weeks of the competition so if you would like to vote for my new photo of the two children with their dog on the beach, please click underneath the image where it says "Vote Now".

Thanks everyone for your most valued support!

Pet Shots Photography Wins Competition

Lesley O'Donnell - Wednesday, May 04, 2011


Can I Come Too?

I am so excited today as this photo just won the People’s Choice prize in an American professional photography competition. Yee haah!

The competition will ultimately be judged by a panel of professional photographers but while it is running the public can vote each week for their favourite photo.

There are four more weeks to go so if you would like to support me you can vote for my new photo here. Votes need to be in by Monday.

The subject of this winning photo is Mini, the love child of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mother and her Jack Russell beau. She is a sweet little dog who loves to sit on your lap or shoulders when you are relaxing on the sofa. She has a protective nature and loves to be included in everything that is going on.

Now 11 years old she lives in New Zealand with my brothers family. Although the smallest dog in the busy household she is definitely the boss over all visiting dogs and the two cats she shares her own home with.

Mini is also working hard to help other animals less fortunate than herself - click here to see how.

Yes she is all that you say and sometimes much more too. She also isn't past hopping into your bed with you given half a chance but always very loving and protective of the family. Yes she even bosses Granddad and goes to sleep on his shoulders while sitting
on the couch, both having a little "Zizz"!
