The Rise of Furtography

I’ve been photographing people’s pets for a long time now, almost 18 years. So much has happened over that time, including: moving to New Zealand from the tiny Island of Guernsey; publishing three bestselling books and winning Portrait Open Photographer of the Year at the 2018 Iris Awards.
But one single thing changed the trajectory of my business more than any other, so before I head to Wellington to share all things dog photography related at ExposurePRO, I thought I’d give you all a bit of background into what that was and how it is having an impact on my business every single day.

The people have spoken

Wildlife Photographer of the Year LUMIX People’s Choice Award winner revealed
The Natural History Museum’s annual showcase of the world’s best nature photography and photojournalism has revealed the winner of the people’s choice award. More than 16,000 nature fans voted from a selection of 25 images shortlisted by the London institution, with New Zealand-born London-based photographer David Lloyd’s picture, Bond of Brothers, depicting a unique moment between a pair of male lions, emerging as the favourite.

The two adult males, likely to be brothers, greeted and rubbed faces for around 30 seconds before settling down. It is unusual for lions to nuzzle for so long, and David was honoured to have experienced and captured such a moment.

“I’m so pleased that this image did well because it illustrates the emotion and feeling of animals and emphasises that this is not limited to humans,” David says. “It is something I think more people need to be aware of for the sake of all animals.”
