The Secret Life Of Pets.

Pip the Black Beetle and her sidekick sister Pixel visited our friends at Event Cinemas Innaloo . They excitedly taste-tested the popcorn and checked out the comfy seating in anticipation for the release of  The Secret Life Of Pets.




Bay 38 – Pet Friendly Short Term Holiday Rental, Dunsborough

Do you enjoy going away? Love to take your dog with you? We like to escape the city with Pip the Black Beetle and Pixel at least twice a year, but it’s often hard to find decent holiday homes close to the beach that allow dogs. Until now!

Bay 38 – Short Term Holiday Rental in Dunsborough has a beach front location and is just 50 metres from the pristine white sands of Geographe Bay. The dog beach is just a few hundred metres walk away and the bustling Dunsborough town centre is a short 400 metre stroll. It’s perfect for that much needed, relaxing holiday with your family and furkids.

Apart from the amazing bay views from the living area, you can lie in the master bed and see the sun rise over the ocean. Bliss! This stunning coastal chic home has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 3 toilets. It sleeps up to 10 people and there’s a large back yard and both the front and back yards are fully enclosed for everyone’s comfort and safety.

Our awesome Business Administrations Manager, Colleen is also the property manager for Bay 38. We can’t wait to stay there in 2017 and check it out for ourselves. In the meantime, we felt it was only fair to share it with you. 🙂

For bookings and enquiries please email Colleen direct on and check out Bay 38 at…/…/south-west/dunsborough/193122 or



9th Julia Margaret Cameron Award

Ecstatic to hear that ‘Bear Apartment Six’, my limited edition fundraising print for Free the Bears Fund, has won the ‘Alternative Processes’ category of the prestigious 9th Julia Margaret Cameron Award.

Andréa Holzherr, Director of Global Exhibitions for Magnum Photos, judged images submitted by 531 women photographers from 50 countries.

‘Bear Apartment Six’ will be exhibited at the Berlin Foto Biennale 2016 and 4th Biennial of Fine Art and Documentary Photography during the EMOP Berlin – European Month of Photography in Berlin in October 2016.

I’m delighted that this print will be representing rescued bears, and the work of Free The Bears Fund, on a global stage in Berlin. Huge congrats to all of the other winning artists. Check out all their stunning images at



Western Digital (WD) 3TB My Passport Wireless Pro Hard Drive

Today I got my hands on the hotly anticipated Western Digital (WD) 3TB My Passport Wireless Pro Hard Drive. What does this mean? Well I now have a compact portable storage device to carry with me on off-site photo shoots and overseas travels, and I can use it to easily download and back up photos or high-definition videos when out in the field.

It’s designed to work seamlessly with mobile devices (and is easy to drive through the WD App), has a built-in SD card reader, plus a USB port for quick connection to a CF card reader or directly to your camera. With 10 hour battery life, you can even charge your mobile phone, ipad and DSLR on it. The WD Wireless Pro looks pretty slick too and comes with a tough case to prevent knocks.

Can’t wait to show it in action soon during a special project I’m working on with Western Digital. ‪#‎ItsAGameChanger‬ ‪#‎ForThePhotographers‬‪#‎WesternDigital‬




I’m so thrilled and proud to announce the biggest, most amazing collaboration of my business life – the ‘Because I’m Happy’ Collection with Peter Alexander Sleepwear. Peter has been Australia’s ‘King of Sleepwear’ for the past 25 years, and creates fun and fabulous sleepwear items, often with huge international brands like Disney, The Simpsons, Barbie, Sesame Street, and The Muppets to name a few. For his ‘Because I’m Happy’ Collection he approached Houndstooth Studio by Alex Cearns and invited us to be involved. JUMPING UP AND DOWN! It’s been such an honour to work with Peter and his team, and another beyond-my-wildest-dreams moment.

The ‘Because I’m Happy’ Collection is now in all Peter Alexander stores across Australia and online at

Additional items in the ‘Because I’m Happy’ Collection, featuring our images, are due out each month until Christmas, so be sure to sign up to Peter’s Sweet Dreams Mailing List to receive all the updates.

* one Dog Bowl (Pip the Black Beetle‘s fave!)
RRP for each set is $170.

To enter just post a photo of your dog on our facebook page at tell us why they make you happy, then add in the hashtag ‪#‎peteralexander‬ at the end and you are good to go.

The three winners will be selected on Monday 22nd August, 5pm WST by Alex and prizes in relevant sizes will be posted out. Entry is open to anyone, anywhere and this competition is not affiliated with Facebook.

Good luck!

I’m currently in Sydney meeting with Tamron Japan, Tamron Australia and TNS Australia representatives to discuss all things Tamron. Great timing as the latest addition to the Tamron Super Performance Series lens range has recently been released. Introducing Model F017, the re-vamped 90mm f2.8 Macro lens with Vibration Compensation. An awesome piece of kit with 1:1 magnification. Check out the specs at
