Often, when we photograph dogs, we focus on them and crop quite tightly. This week our theme was meant to encourage us to highlight the surroundings and give a sense of place.

This image is from a time when I was just beginning my career in pet photography, at a workshop in beautiful Virginia, USA. That workshop opened my eyes to the possibilities and to look at pet photography in such a different way – it truly started me down the path to where I am today. I love this image, even though there are things that, now with a couple of years under my belt, I would tweak. But it still remains significant to me because of that moment in time. Enjoy!
