A day in the life of Nesta the Irish Wolfhound pup

Everything's big when it comes to Nesta. Her crate, the car, her high rise food bowls ... the food bill. She's an Irish Wolfhound pup and at seven months old, weighs in at 42 kilos. She's a beauty. So you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to visit her for an at-home photoshoot.

Morus the shop dog at Fred Aldous Manchester

For a dog with such little legs, Morus (pronounced Morris) the Corgi has a pretty big personality. He's the resident dog at Manchester's beloved art shop, Fred Aldous, and since being a puppy he's been helping out in the basement warehouse. I stopped by to get some photos of Morus the Fred Aldous mascot, capturing his typical day at work.

Colours May Vary is an independent book and homewares shop with an exhibition space celebrating the local independent creatives of Leeds and beyond.

Pals in the Park: Geoff & Tilly

One of my favourite things about being a dog owner is how people are brought together organically. You naturally stop and chat with people in the community, something that’s a bit of a rarity in today’s iPhone driven world. I had the pleasure of photographing two of my favourite park pals - Geoff and his dog Tilly.

Getting Organised with the Nooshel 2018 Dog Diary

The guys at Nooshel kindly gifted me my very own Dog Diary earlier this year, a product I'd swooned over on Instagram, and soon realised was a must-have necessity. It's coming to the end of January (and very nearly my first year as a professional pet photographer) and honestly, I don't know how I ever survived without my little black book. Here's what I love most about it ...

Pets at Work: Olive at Sunny Bank Mills Studios

A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting children's book illustrator Kate Pankhurst and her studio sidekick, Olive the Dalmation. While Kate draws, designs and brings stories to life, Olive gets a run of the whole top floor of Sunny Bank Mills. By chance I got to meet Kate and Olive and had an insight into their working day at the studio. And yes. A studio Dalmation really is as lovely as it sounds.

Pets at Work: Alfie at Third Eye Signs

When I first got in touch with Kieran at Third Eye Signs, I felt like I already knew him. Subconsciously, I’d spotted his handi-work all over Leeds and as a newcomer, found myself drawn to the independent shops, cafes and restaurants he’d ‘signed’. My little epiphany was made even more exciting when I realised Kieran had a workshop buddy, Alfie. A Pets at Work post was in the making.
