I have worked as a photographer for more than 10 years and my love of animals and their welfare has led me to spend much of my time capturing images of the way they live around the world. From the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and the carriage horses of New York City to daily life at a Malaysian dog shelter and the training of bomb sniffing dogs in Bosnia, I have documented their stories with integrity, individuality and insight.
"Hounds of Hope," which shows daily life at the Penang Animal Welfare Society in Malaysia, was recognized in the World Press Photo Awards 2014 and my work has been published in international news media including The New York Times, The Guardian (UK), The Sunday Times (UK). It has also featured in major photo festivals and exhibitions around the world.
Memberships include the Royal Photographic Society, National Association of Press Photographers and HeARTs Speak, a global organization that pairs artists with local animal shelters to help raise their profile.
When not behind the camera, I am momma to three beautiful India born dachshunds: Mitzie (9), Monty (9) and Minnie (5), who each have their own passport and have already lived on three continents. Prior to moving into photography, I worked for 20 years as a public relations and communications consultant in London and NYC.
I am now based in the northern Virginia/Washington DC Metro area and available for editorial assignments, private photo shoots for clients and their animals (studio and on location), event and commercial photography, and pro-bono work for animal welfare organizations.
