Dog Buddha

While shooting a nice condo this past week I ran across this interesting piece of sculpture - a "dog Buddha." Couldn't help but capture a shot of it. I think Buddha is laughing.

A fundraiser for my shelter

Last year I decided to do a fundraiser for my local shelter during the month of May. I donated $25 from every photo shoot I did in May. While it didn't generate a lot of money ($225), the shelter was very appreciative of the donation and both the shelter and I got some press coverage. A win/win.

I decided to do it again this year with...

English Buldog Puppies

Didn`t have any plans that day so I told my neighbor "let`s take your puppies out for a photoshoot" .....and it turns out to be a great day ...they were all over me camera, every lens was licked :D ....

Can makes an amazing recovery

This is Eggnog (where the shelter came up with that name I don't know). She was found in a ditch along side the road and thought to be dead. But a good person picked her up and brought her to the shelter, where with a lot of help she is now up and about, albeit missing one eye, and thriving. I took her portrait last week at my local shelter (...

Portrait of Atlantic puffin

The Atlantic Puffin can be very hard to capture good and sharp photos of. They fly quickly and as soon as they land with food for their little ones they disappear into their small caves. The cool thing about taking pictures of the puffins at Runde, Norway is that as soon as the sun sets the puffins starts be really photogenic and sits still....

Camera shy and cover girl

I was playing with a Canon 5d markii when I took these pictures in my back yard. Lily is a dachshund mix who is quite a bit camera shy. Sadie is a basenji mix that I can't seem to get a bad photo of.

My goal with the image of both of the girls in the same frame was to document the difference in their personalities.

Let me know...

Bambi & Friend

Okay - not Bambi, but thought it made for a good title :)

Taken in Richmond Park, London last December with a Canon 7D Mk2 and Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Sport.

Always amazed at how animals cooperate for mutual benefit... young deer gets de-bugged, Blackbird gets lunch!

Spunky the kitten

I was as my local shelter yesterday taking my usual pro bono portraits of the new animals. This little guy - Spunky - really stole my heart. He got his name as he was the runt of the litter and not expected to survive, but he was "spunky" and beat all the odds.

As I was standing next to the raised bed he was sleeping on trying to get a...

Submitting a photo for your critique

Hello, I'm Mare. I love photographing pets so I joined this group and I am submitting this photo for your critique. I created a series of photos taking pictures of my cat Lucy with different lighting. This one was with flash in manual mode (1/32power). The settings were 48mm focal length, f/10, shutter speed 1/125(to stop the motion of a moving...


From last weeks pro bono portrait shoot at my local animal shelter. Part Siamese, she looks like she could be the "queen of Egypt!"


New to the group and the fstoppers community. Wanted to share one of my favorite images. I hope everyone has an awesome day!
