I have been working as a documentary and lifestyle photographer in Asia and Europe for 10 years and recently relocated to Connecticut, USA. For photo editors and corporate clients, I am available for commercial and editorial assignments in the CT, NY, and NJ area. My work has been published in a broad range of media including The New York Times, International New York Times, The Telegraph (UK), The Guardian (UK) and People Magazine. It has also featured in major photo festivals and exhibitions around the world. For animal lovers and pet parents, I offer fun photo shoots to capture precious memories, record special events, or simply document the daily life of your furry friends. Whatever your needs, I work to your brief to create compelling, high quality images that capture the essence of their subject.
People often ask how I became so enamored with dogs, as I didn't grow up with them, our only pets being budgerigars, hamsters, and goldfish! It was my move to India in 2005 that piqued my interest in animal welfare and the way that 'man's best friend' was treated in different cultures; in my adopted home city of Bangalore alone there were more than 250,000 dogs living on the streets, feared by locals and rounded up by the authorities as vermin. This was the start of my long term project documenting dogs and their roles in societies around the world. One of those stories "Hounds of Hope", which captures daily life at the Penang Animal Welfare Society in Malaysia, was recognized in the prestigious World Press Photo Awards 2014. I also work pro-bono for a number of animal shelters in the Tri-State area and am a member of HeARTs Speak, a global organization that pairs artists with local animal shelters to help raise their profile.
I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society, National Association of Press Photographers, American Photographic Artists, and a regular contributor to Barcroft Images/Getty (international photo news agency). I am also a proud puppy momma to three beautiful Indian born dachshunds, Mitzie (9), Monty (8), and Minnie (4), each with their own Pet Passport and already residents of three continents! Prior to moving into photography, I worked for 20 years as a public relations and communications consultant in London and New York City.
