Hello! I’m Alistair, an animal lover turned pet photographer.

I like dogs (well I’m crazy about dogs), I’m a coffee addict and chocolate connoisseur.

I live in the suburbs of Gungahlin, Canberra just down the road from Belconnen Obedience Dog Club.  It allows me to wander around the club photographing people’s dogs.

I have been passionate with furry critters since I was a young boy and brought up on a farm. We had dogs, cats, horses, and every bird you could think of! I spent every moment playing with these animals. It was not surprising that I developed a love of animals.

I am a fanatic of boxers since spending 10 years with our boxer – Cucciolo. Their mischievous and inquisitive nature makes them the perfect family companion.

I believe in giving back to the community.  I currently photograph animals that come into the Canberra Pet Rescue to increase their probability of being re-homed.

When I am not photographing pets, I am playing with my film cameras, listening to music or to podcasts, and I love to watch sport on TV (mostly football and AFL).   

So if you want a pet photography that will be as crazy about your pets as you are and you want a fun and relaxed photo shoot, then I am the person for you.chocolate

This is where you come in! Check out my portfolio and if you like what you see then I would like to hear from you.



My mission is to create an enjoyable experience in front of the camera for the pet owner and their pet(s) as well as provide timeless photographs that can be treasured for an eternity.   


To capture those treasured moments between a pet owner and their pets.
