Eager Greyhound Wins Photography Award

Pet Shots Photography-Greyhound-AIPP-Award


This fleeting little scene appealed to me the moment I spied it and I was delighted to click the shutter and record it forevermore. 

At the time it felt like a winner and so it proved to be when it earned me a Silver Award in the recent 2016 Australian Institute of Professional Photography Awards.

I love the quirkiness of glimpsing only half the subject but immediately understanding the full story with the clock suggesting Benny is ready for his evening walk. Although the image is humorous, excursions to nearby parks were something this lithe dog considered a serious matter and eagerly looked forward to. 

Shortly after I photographed him, this rescued Greyhound Wolfhound cross moved to England with his adoptive parents Jackie and Nigel. No doubt he has discovered new open spaces to explore where he can endlessly run around after his ball.

Read an earlier post about this dog and see just how handsome he is from the front.


I would love to hear what you think, so please leave a comment below.

Gentle Greyhound Photographed in Melbourne

Benny is one lucky dog to have found a home with Jackie and Nigel. They absolutely adore their Greyhound Wolfhound cross and will shortly give him a new life overseas when they relocate to England. I had so much fun photographing at their home and Albert Park Lake ensuring they have some meaningful Melbourne memories to take with them.

Active when outdoors, Benny is obsessed with his ball and loves nothing more than venturing to one of the many parks near his home where he repeatedly runs after and jumps high in the air to retrieve it. He also loves excursions to the country to visit the horses Jackie rides.

However, once home, he becomes a bit of a lay-about and when Jackie and Nigel leave him home alone he likes to sneak into the spare room to his favourite resting place on the guest bed. He is not alone all that often though as he spends the working week with a dog sitter who possibly loves him as much as Jackie and Nigel do.

Benny is very affectionate and gentle and was a joy to photograph because he did everything he was asked to do. I can't imagine why he was ever surrendered for adoption as he is such a delightful companion.
