Finding a sweet spot of light and getting in the perfect position is key to pet photography - knee pads help too!

Finding a sweet spot of light and getting in the perfect position is key to pet photography - knee pads help too!

I have been working as a documentary and lifestyle photographer for 11 years and 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 international photo festivals and exhibitions. Whatever your needs - editorial, commercial or pet photography - I work to your brief to create compelling, high quality images that capture the essence of their subject.

Whilst I photograph many subjects from news events to cultural events and hotels to handbags, my relocation to India in 2005 piqued my interest in dogs and animal welfare: In my adopted home city of Bangalore alone there were more than 250,000 street dogs. This stark image led to me documenting the different lives that dogs and animals live around the world. One of those photographic documentaries "Hounds of Hope", which captures daily life of the 250+ dogs at the Penang Animal Welfare Society in Malaysia, was recognized in the World Press Photo Awards 2014.

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 work pro-bono for a number of animal shelters 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 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.
