I’m such a big dog lover, and couldn’t live without at least one in my life. I currently have 4, ranging from 10 months to 13 year old, who help keep me active even on days when I’d rather stay indoors.
It was my dogs who really started my career in photography as I’d walk them in our wonderful countryside and take their photos. Social networking was in its infancy then but as I posted my photos of the dogs, friends started asking if I would photograph their dogs and from there “Paws & Claws Pet Photography” was born. I eventually started photographing children and that’s how Julie Fraser Photography emerged.
Now I don’t want everyone with a camera to turn into a professional photographer however I’d love to help out those dog owners who like I did, love capturing their pets on camera when out on walks.
I would like to invite you to the very first “Dog Days | A Photography Play Day” on 17th February, starting at 2pm at Sibster Walk (by Georgemas Junction) where I’ll be on hand giving advice to people with using their camera’s whether they are DSLRs, Point and Shoots or just your mobile phones camera. I’ll have my own camera with me and hope that I’ll be able to capture some photos too.
This isn’t a promotion for me to sell my sessions, its a pay it forward goodwill deed and I’d love to raise some funds for Balmore and KWK9 so it would be great if you do come along that you bring a couple of £1’s with you to throw in a collecting tin. It’s a great opportunity for a social meet up for the dogs and for their owners too.
So get the date in your diary, remember to bring your dogs, pack poo bags, biscuits and some coins for donating to two wonderful animal charities in our locality and have some fun at the same time.
Here are some of my photos taken on dog walks with my iphone, not masterpieces by any means but they are of my dogs having fun in a great dog walking location.
Hope to meet a few of you there and that I’ll not be standing there all on my lonesome!!
