In March I received a very exciting phone call from The Kennel Club. During that phone call I was told that I had been placed in the Kennel Club Dog Photographer of the Year competition. I had to keep this news secret until the announcement yesterday. So, after months of literally BURSTING to say something, I can now tell everyone that I am absolutely over the moon to have been awarded Kennel Club Dog Photographer of the Year, 3rd place Man’s Best Friend category winner.
The Dog Photographer of the Year is an international competition which had over 10,000 entries from over 74 different countries around the world.
My winning image is this one of Gus the Jack Russell Terrier and his family, taken on one my ‘Muddy Good Hike” doggy photo shoot adventures.
There are some great winning images this year and I’d like to say huge congrats to all the other photographers placed. Check out all the winning images here: http://www.dogphotographeroftheyear.org.uk/ or better still visit the exhibition of all the images at the Kennel Club Art Gallery in Mayfair, London from 26th June – 31st August 2017
This is such a nice thing to happen to The Phodographer and means so much. Later this year, we’ll be celebrating five years of business and also this success which has been the most lovely surprise.
