Pet Photography: 6 Irish Champions from Dungarvan.

You know what they say: never work with animals or kids! Well I do both, and I absolutely love it. Although, I must admit photographing our furry friends can be challenging.

I have a dog myself, a golden Labrador Retriever named Toby Bubbles. So over time, I have learned a few tricks on how to take photos of dogs. However, working with different breeds and professionally trained dogs definitely puts things into perspective.

Over the past few months, I did several photo shoots with dogs. When you work with dogs, you have to take into consideration a few factors, such as the characteristics of the breed, the personality of the dog, and the photo shoot location.

For example, Brittany Spaniels are a happy dog with a smart personality. They are perfect dogs for those willing to give them the exercise they need or to take them hunting. So when I planned this session, I knew I had to reflect this in the photos.

We spent that morning in the Comeragh Mountains shooting for Le Havre Kennels. Despite the forecast, we beat the rain and got some great photos. Dzintra Klava did a great job styling this session. She has wonderful ideas which makes the photoshoot so much easier!

Kodi, the poodle, on the other hand is such a calm and gentle dog. He slowly walked through the Lismore Castle gardens, giving every tourist the opportunity to take his picture :)

Standard Poodle - Tafari Kodi Bear is Junior Champion.

I love photographing dogs, in studio and on location. Cruze may look small, but he is a big champion in Ireland! He had his photo session in my home based studio.

Iker and Amber are new Irish Champions. Iker De Outeiro Do Carneiro - Irish Ch, Irish JCh, Irish Celtic Winner 2016.

Amber Z Grodu Kopernika - Irish Champion and Irish Junior champion.

Walton Park in Dungarvan looks stunning in spring, and it can provide so many different backdrops.

If you have any questions, I will be glad to talk to you on the phone or by email. I look forward to photographing your furry friend!

Thanks for stopping by.
