Recent Dogs-In-Nature Photoshoot Of A Pair Of Rhodesian Ridgebacks

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a pair of Rhodesian Ridgebacks in their own garden. It was a tricky shoot due to the amount of trees and bushes, but came away with photos that the owner loves. A Dogs-In-Nature shoot allows the dog(s) to behave normally and allows me to capture the natural behaviour that you will always remember.

For more information on these unique shoots, please see the Dogs-In-Nature Photo Shoot page. If you are thinking of something very different for a Christmas present, then why not give a Dogs-In-Nature Gift Voucher?

Here are just a couple of examples from the shoot.

Where’s Wally And Who Is The Lookalike?

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I was asked by 2 followers recently why there hasn’t been any Dog Walk photos recently. For those that don’t know me personally won’t know that Lupi, our 2nd rescue dog was tragically killed a short while ago. As you can imagine, we were devastated and we continue to grieve. However, time moves on and because we originally took Lupi as a companion for Wally we decided to rescue another dog.

Therefore, we now have Millie, as you can see, shes almost a Mini-Wally. She is 5 months old and is another rescued dog. This morning I took a few snaps of her running about.

Morning Dog Walk: Lupi’s First Action Shots

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

For those that are quite new to my blog posts, most mornings I take a camera along on my dog walk with the infamous Wally and our (not so) newcomer Lupi. We took Lupi from the council kennels in Lagos just 10 weeks ago, he is (as good as) deaf and he was very scared and shy (see Blog Post).

In the first few weeks we honestly thought that we would never be able to let Lupi off the lead on the walks, something Wally has the freedom of, however, slowly but surely things have become different and in just this short time we have enough trust in each other that Lupi can enjoy what he is naturally engineered for, running!

Here are a few shots from his first real freedom run around this morning!

Lupi’s 1st Portrait

It was the first “Wally & Lupi Morning Dog Walk” this morning, yes there were a lot of bird life around including the Bee-Eaters, Kingfishers and Golden Orioles, but today it was all about Lupi.

He is, of course, still very timid and doesn’t really understand why he’s not at the kennel anymore, but in time, I’m sure we’ll see a personality start developing. If it doesn’t, then it really doesn’t matter, Lupi can be whatever he wants to be.

He was sat on the river bank this morning taking in his new surroundings and I snapped this headshot of him. As you can see, he has very similar orange eyes to Wally!

So here is one of many photos you’ll see over the coming years of this special dog.

There Will Be No More “Wally Walks”…..

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

….but there will be “Wally & Lupi Walks”.

At the weekends Fair we spotted Lupi at the Lagos Canil (Lagos Dog Kennels) Stand and immediately both agreed that he’d be the perfect brother for Wally.

It’s going to take a while to settle him in as he is a little timid. He also is hard of hearing and possibly deaf but I have noticed that he reacts to a loud high-pitched whistle.

As you can see, Wally is so happy with his company. I look forward to bringing you some exciting stories of our morning walks.

Here they are in the back of the car on the way home today.

Morning Dog Walk: Today It’s All About Wally And Sort Of The Kingfishers

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I have been so busy the last week, either shooting Real Estate or stuck in my studio processing Real Estate photos. Last night we decided to head into the village for some well-earned beverages and Wally was looking really sad……..

….he’d clearly been missing his daddy. We came back last night and he was like my shadow, it kept nudging me to get under my arm for a cuddle.

So this morning we headed out to the river for a big splash about, I took some photos and today, I’m going to spend most of the day with him! The river level is dropping quickly and will soon dry out leaving large pools. It’s been an issue for my Kingfisher perch because every time I place it in location, before I get a chance to photograph them, the river is too shallow. This morning we wandered further upstream and have located a place I thought was perfect for the Kingfishers. The fish are considerably larger and the river will pool here, soon enough from behind an overhanging tree I heard a splash followed by the high-pitched call of a Kingfisher. I watched it fly away complete with a fish. 5 minutes later it (or another one) returned. So yet again, I will be relocating the perch in hope of some close-up shots.

Here is Wally splashing around enjoying life, as usual!

Don’t forget about my Dogs-In-Nature Photo Shoots capture your own best friend in stunning quality as above!
