bullet h1a little about me...

 

Leanne has had a love affair with animals furry or feathered right from a young age. From dogs to budgies, insects to rodents, reptiles to fish and everything in between. However, it wasn't until she and her family lost their adopted Greyhound to old age that she realised how little she had by way of photographs to remember him by. Filled with guilt and sadness over this she set out to rectify this for future pets and went out and bought a point and shoot camera in 2008.

Once behind the camera Leanne’s love of photography was born. In the first year her photographs and ability to capture her animals true personalities progressed to a level where her friends were asking for her to help capture their beloved pets on film; and to stop talking in the third person.

After purchasing her first DSLR it was clear that she had a natural talent and an eye for a beautiful photograph that captured the animals beauty and character. She took this ability and put it to good use photographing the dogs and cats at her local animal rescue to try and help them find their forever homes.

It was at this stage that her work was becoming sought after to such a level that it seemed prudent to take up pet photography as a business and focus her passion as a career. Leanne’s ethos has always been about the welfare of animals and she has a natural talent for working with dogs who have had difficult pasts and are nervous or worried by life, very much helped by her time working with the animals in the rescue centre. By being able to read dog body language so well means that she can allow them the freedom to be themselves and capture this in her work which has produced some stunning photographs for owners to cherish.

Even today, with a busy life and photography schedule Leanne is committed to helping homeless dogs throughout the country and at a number of rescue centres to try and bring their dogs alive in photographs enabling them to reach out to potential adoptive families. There is no better way to spend time for Leanne than rolling around in a muddy field seeing the heart and soul of her subject come to life on camera.
