Four years ago, I made a life-changing decision. I flew my border collie, Loki, with me from Australia to Europe, bought a van, and traveled for two years. A year ago, my puppy Journey joined us. I’ve been working on my photography for the past two years and now create dramatic, intense, captivating images of dogs – especially my two boys.
I have a real dream to make art with pet photography. Not cutesy pictures of dogs, but something bold, rich, wonderful. Something which tells stories, asks questions or clearly speaks from the dog’s soul. This year has been hard for all of us, but diving headfirst into photography, finding light, editing until my hands and wrists ache, trying poses and expressions, and new techniques have kept me sane.
These are a minimal selection of my photos from the past 12 months. I took all photos outside with natural light.
