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,

Susan.

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"!

Pet Photography - Second Chance

Lesley O'Donnell - Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Animal Aid photo of Arhcie’s wounds

Archie once featured on Animal Aid’s website as an abused dog in need of a special owner who would help him regain his confidence for life and trust in humans. When he arrived at Animal Aid he had a large cyst on his shoulder that required surgery as well as several other wounds on his back. It was suspected that they had been inflicted by an uncaring, intolerant and cruel human being. He was fearful of people, especially men, and reluctant to seek affection. Men in baseball caps and empty bottles still freak him out.

Through the match making program run by Animal Aid, Archie was given a second chance of finding a happy new life in a safe family home with loving new parents Roxanne and Sean. Interestingly Roxanne was also given a second chance at life in 1994 when she was the recipient of a double lung and heart transplant. In June she will represent Australia in athletics at the World Transplant Games in Sweden. Pet Shots Photography wish her all the best in her endeavours.

Archie is one of the many pets who are helping other dogs and cats in need of emergency care and rehoming. He will feature in the limited edition coffee table book Pet Shots Photography is publishing to help raise funds for Animal Aid rescues, rehoming and veterinary care.

If you and your pets would like to star in our book and help less fortunate animals just like Archie, please register your interest here.



Archie and Roxanne - happy and healthy together

What a great story this is, both for Archie and Roxanne and it is just great to know that there are still great and kind people in the world. We wish both a long and happy life now that both have been helped, each in a different way. Quite a transformation for both, very heart warming.
