Presented by Tamron Lenses USA, join me at B&H Photo Video Pro Audio Superstore in New York City for my seminar “Animal Portrait Photography: The Art of Working with Animals and Succeeding in a Niche Market”.

DETAILS: I’ll share my journey from law maker to image maker, that saw me leave behind a 19 year career with the Australian Government in policing and airport counter-terrorism, to pursue my love of animal photography. In addition to presenting the top seven factors I believe are essential to taking remarkable animal portraiture, I’ll discuss how I select relevant lenses for each subject and environment, and will introduce my ideas on how to find your own niche in photography and succeed in the competitive photographic industry.

WHERE: Second Floor, B&H SuperStore 420 9th Avenue, NYC

Beyond thrilled to hear my photo series BIRD FACE took out the Professional PETS category of the International Photography Awards. Just can’t believe it!

Also picked up 5 x Highly Commended Professional Awards for Bear Apartment Six (Special – Other Category), Zen Dogs Photo Series (Pets Category), Wild Antarctic Series (Nature – Wildlife Category), Orang (Fine Art – Portrait Category and Digitally Enhanced Category).

The International Photography Awards 2016 received 17,040 of submissions from over 162 countries. Could not be happier with this result – it’s way beyond what I expected and I’m still in shock. :)

Congrats to Russell Ord of Russell Ord – Photography for bringing it home in the Sports Category and to Brett Canet-Gibson from Twine – Ideas That Bind for his 3rd place in Fine Art – Still Life Category. Legends!

Guide Dogs WA

Had a fantastic day last Thursday photographing a lovely campaign for Guide Dogs WA in Eaton, then judging at the Photography Group of Bunbury – a welcoming club and a delightful group of people to visit. While there, I was able to show everyone the WD My Passport Wireless Pro hard drive in all of its glory. It’s designed by photographers for photographers, and is a must have piece of kit.

WD not only create excellent storage solutions, they’ve been supporting rescue shelters across Australia too, via their #WDPets project. Their generosity is so appreciated and they have helped make a huge difference to the lives of rescue animals – including the pooches at the Dogs’ Refuge Home of WA, some of whom are featured in the article below.

Thanks to the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper in Brazil and Bom pra Cachorro blog for sharing the Perfect Imperfection stories and images, in print and online. These inspirational animals are still shining a global light on animals with disabilities, 12 months after this series first went viral. I really appreciate the support and help in sharing the message that animals who are perceived as different really aren’t that different at all.…/serie-mostra-beleza-de-animais-com-deficiencia-veja/…/46468-animais-deficientes



Dogs Today Magazine

The lovely team at Dogs Today Magazine included a pic of Sunny the kelpie in their ‘Best Dog Photos In The World’ section, October issue. The featured photo was taken while Sunny was at the Dogs’ Refuge Home of WA waiting for her forever home. She was super happy after returning from a walk and jumped up to say “Hi!” as I went past.

I love the joy in her face! It was almost as if she knew what was just around the corner, as Sunny was adopted not long after by Sally and Ken, and later came to the studio for portrait pics with her new brother Simba.#Rescue #BestDogPhotosInTheWorld #DRH #BestDogInTheWorld
