Simply put Dandy has changed my world and is my inspiration. She came into my life in 2008 and very soon stole my heart and made me a much calmer person (through necessity as she ignores me if I'm not). She is a labradoodle with a heart of gold and the bounce of a kangaroo. She has sussed me out and knows how to wrap me round her little finger (or paw) and with those big brown eyes, it's surprising she's not twice the size she is. You will find that photographs or her will pop up all over this site and my Facebook page and I'm not going to apologise for it. You know how you feel about you own dog and you just want to share that with the world.
Derek is the voice you'll hear on the telephone when I'm out and about or holed up with my editing giving it all my concentration. Although a naturally talented photographer himself, he chooses to work in the background and be the support that allows me to be out in the middle of a wet field with cameras. It takes different strengths to bring it all together. Derek is amazing, he just does it very quietly.
Reginald goes with me to networking events spreading the word about good photography. He's always well behaved and now has a following of people who say hello and even give him a stroke. He may not say a lot, but he gets the message across. I'd love to take Dandy as well, but she probably wouldn't let me get a word in and who's going to listen to me, when she's just too cute. Reginald is actually a toy, but don't say it too loud he might hear.
