Pleased to have a four page spread in the August Issue of Cotswold Life Magazine
Super excited and proud to announce I have reached the top 25 of the world's largest International Pet Photographer competition. Four thousand entries received from more than 50 countries, and I have TWO images in the Top 25.
Super chuffed and very proud to have received this in the post today. The Photographers Bar from The Guild of Photographers!
“A member of the Photographer's Bar is a unique distinction awarded to those photographers who have successfully had images assessed by the Guild over the course of a year, and attained a score evidencing an exceptional level of professional skill and consistency.”
Of course - while I get the award it could not be done without a steady flow of awesome dogs & owners coming through the door - putting their trust in me to create cherished memories of their dogs - so a big thank you from me
The year got off to a fantastic start as The Gloucester Dog Photographer was chosen by Theo Paphitis (of Dragons Den fame) as one of his #SBS Winners (SBS - Small Business Sunday) Each week Theo asks his Twitter followers to tweet about their business and six are chosen as winners. Winning the #SBS has given us a massive boost and belief after two years of stop/start/stop.
A year after its release in the UK, my best selling book - Underdogs, has been published in the USA!
So the Xperience Awards came & went without picking up a coveted title - but at least one of our images was a "Top 10" image - which is no mean feat as there were over 8000 entries. So we are really chuffed to show off this image of Hope - the super gorgeous Afghan Hound that made the top 10.
I'm delighted to announce that after the first round of judging I have 7 images up for an award in this years Xperience Awards, due to be judged in November
The #KingOf is given to men (and women) in business for recognition of their business prowess and ability. I'm pleased to say I was awarded this honour of #KingOf Dog Photography in January 2021

At a glamorous virtual event hosted by the Xperience Group in Cardiff on a cold December night I was excited and privileged to have won not one but two Consumer Awards, The Consumer Awards are chosen by a panel of ordinary members of the public. More than 8000 images were entered this year so am very happy to pick up two awards, one for our studio photography - especially pleased as it is our signature style - and one for our location photography.
