New breed images added of Tamaskan dogs

Three Tamaskan Dogs photo by Eva Maria Kramer

This breed was co-developed in Britain, it is made of Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute and German Shepherd plus some unknown Nordic breeds and is bred internationally.

The aim is to have a dog that looks like a wolf dog but does not have wolf crosses and thus easier to keep. Not suspicious but a reliable friendly dog.

Nick Ridley signs with Animal Photography

Nick Ridley, Animal Photography

Today we signed the fabulous Nick Ridley to Animal Photography, this is fantastic news, as just last month we signed Paul Walker.

Nick has been involved in photography for over 30 years and this experience coupled with a lifetime of being around working dogs gives him an undeniable edge when photographing our canine companions. He was an inspector with a well known animal charity and always puts the care and welfare of the animal before the taking of a photograph.

He is a full time professional dog photographer and is available for both commercial and private commissions. In 1998 he started what has become one of the highest profile and well respected dog event photography businesses in the country. His photographs are used throughout the world and he has a number of international clients within his portfolio.

Nick has written two books on photographing pets and dogs and in 2008 he published his "first coffee table book" Labradors... At Work, Rest and Play. In 2009 the second book in the series Spaniels was published and both books have gone on to be international sellers. Nick has made numerous television and radio appearances.

You can visit Nick's website here www.nickridley.com We'll post more of his fabulous photos, as they go live.

Paul Walker signs with Animal Photography

Paul Walker

A warm welcome to Paul Walker; the latest photographer to join the Animal Photography team.

We first came across Paul a few years ago, when one Christmas morning we unwrapped his fabulous book: Pet Photography Now. Since then we have been following his great work, and today are delighted to announce his contract arrived safely, dog bite-mark included.

Paul has won numerous awards for his stunning imagery - a list far too long to go into here - and has been awarded the Scottish Master Photographer title no less than three times.

His extensive experience of photographing animals with differing temperaments - from rescue dogs through to highly trained Crufts regulars - and attitude to pet photography is well regarded, as are his ‘animal wizardry tricks’; a special set of animal interaction techniques designed to get the very best out of his subjects.

You can visit Paul's website here www.pawspetphotography.co.uk We'll post more of his fabulous photos, as they go live.
