I took the courage last month to enter my first competition and I entered the above image in the Pet Section of SWPP monthly competition. I received a Silver award which means the image was deemed to be above the standard expected in a competition and has the potential to be upgraded to a Gold and entered into the annual competition.
This image is of a collie called Rosie taken outside Stirling and her owner/handler who is currently training her to take part in agility competitions. I always aim with my pet photography to give the client something different and give them images that reflects the charactor of the pet. Rosie is definitely the fastest dog I have ever photographed! I have put a small slide show of more images from this session on the side section of my blog.
