Marshall, VA, USA
Professional photographer available for pet and animal photo shoots (in studio and on location), editorial assignments, event and commercial photography, and pro-bono work for animal welfare groups in the northern Virginia/Washington DC Metro areas.
I have held a lifelong passion for photography and animals. After a life changing move from Manhattan to India some 12 years ago, I seized the opportunity to create my dream job: animal photographer.
Whether photographing the primping and preening at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, following the training of landmine detection dogs in Bosnia, or capturing the personality of a beloved family pet, my aim is to document their stories with integrity, individuality and insight.
"Hounds of Hope,” my photo story about the 250+ canine residents at the Penang Animal Welfare Society in Malaysia, was recognized in the prestigious World Press Photo Awards. This and other work has been published in US and international media and featured in exhibitions and festivals worldwide.
I am a member of 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 and adoption success.
When not behind the camera, I'm a proud puppy momma to three Indian born dachshunds: Mitzie, Monty and Minnie. Prior to moving into photography, I spent 20 years as a PR and communications consultant in London and NYC.
