I love street photography and I love dogs, so spending an afternoon at Faversham dog show with my camera honing my documentary photography skills was a nice way to pass the time. The thing you find when you have a dog is that people talk to you more readily. We all seem to be a little less ‘British’ when we have our four legged friends with us, they’re an ice breaker and we’ll happily show them off to whoever pays any attention!
The other reason I was there was to help out at The Medical Detection Dog stall as I am doing some photography for them for any promotional material or events this year. Its a fantastic charity that raises money for dogs to be trained to help people of all ages who have conditions such as Diabetes as well as detect diseases such as cancer. Just proves how clever a dog can be and how they can improve the quality of someone’s life as well as save them!
Because I love photographing people and their dogs I also offer ‘Day in The Life’ photography. This involves spending a few hours with you documenting your time with your dog and perhaps other members of your family. It’s like a memory day and is a great keepsake for the future.
Photography for me is all about having fun and that includes doing things like this as well as photographing weddings, which I love obviously. But sometimes too much time can be spent in front of the computer so just getting out there and photographing life allows me remember why I choose to do this job of being wedding photographer.
