I own six dogs. I couldn’t find a pet photographer in the Columbus Georgia area, so I took matters into my own hands. I started off by buying a Nikon D40. I learned everything I could about photography from other photographers and reading about photography on the internet. I then bought studio lighting. So many people thought my work was good so I decided to see if our local Humane Society could use a photographer. They did. So now I do photo shoots every week at the Humane Society. It has really helped find the animals homes quicker. Then I decided to open up a pet photography business here in Columbus. I have been in business now for a little over 3 years. I love being around animals and I love capturing that perfect pose. I hope you enjoy viewing my gallery.

My current photography gear is: Nikon D3/D700/Two Alien Bee 800’s

She said I could set up my studio and take some portrait photos for anyone that may want to have their dog’s photo taken. She also wanted me to take action shots. I agreed immediately. I never pass up the opportunity to take photos of any…

I just don't get it

As some of you know I’m a beginner photographer. I have only been doing photography now for about 10 months. I absolutely love it, but here is what bothers me the most: Other photographers. / I have been to several different dog events during the past couple of months and during these events I see other photographers there. Being the nice person that I am, I often walk over to them and chec…

Very sad

Yesterday I had to make the worst decision of my life, do we put our dog down. How unfair can life be? I think all pet owners have this dreaded decision to make in their lives at one time or another. Never an easy decision to make. / What makes it so bad is that Lestat was only 7 years old. He still had several years of life to live. I failed him and I feel so guilty about it. How can money be th…
