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.

Dog Portraits Reward Melbourne Pet Photographer

Pet-Shots-Photography-Labradoodle-AIPP-Silver-Award

Woo Hoo! I am smiling from ear to ear as I just enjoyed a great weekend at the Australian Professional Photography Awards with two of my entries winning Silver Awards! How good is that!


I photographed this very regal Labradoodle, Max, as part of a commercial pet photography assignment for Balwyn dog groomers Roll Over Beethoven. I have always loved the humour in this image with the paintings of the imposing characters overseeing from above.




And who doesn't love a pug puppy with their pleading eyes and curling tails? I think Emmi-Rose has a name that is just as cute as she is. I took this striking image of her on the night that she graduated with flying colours from Puppy School at the Swan Street Vet in Richmond.

Thanks to Max and Emmi-Rose for being such stunning models.
