The photographer has this to say about the dog:
"I first photographed Dozer when he was a tiny puppy so have known him how whole life. He is a sweet boy with a playful personality who is loyal to his family and friends. It’s always fun photographing Dozer as he loves being in front of the camera."

My lifelong love of animals came well before my love of photography and began during my formative years in outback Australia where my father was a sheep shearer and wool valuer. As an only child, my constant companions were my dogs, guinea pigs, horses, rabbits and bottle-fed lambs.
My family had a great regard for Australian wildlife and I often helped my mother rescue and care for a wide array of injured kangaroo joeys, birds and other creatures until they could be released back into their natural habitat.

While the photographer's passion is animal charity work, they view pet photography as their day job.
Philanthropy is a huge part of my business philosophy and one of my driving passions. I work pro bono with dozens of animal rescue charities, sanctuaries or shelters, by providing images, sponsorship and conducting major fundraising projects every year.

Every charity project the photographer undertakes is about improving the lives of animals. Knowing that they can help make a difference to the lives of rescue animals is a huge motivation.
The right image viewed by the right person can mean a dog is re-homed, a donation is made, or the media will run a story that increases awareness or raises public concern for a cause that directly affects the welfare of the animal.
