Oops it has been rather a long time since I’ve posted here! I’ve been crazy busy, have photographed lots of beautiful animals in the studio, and at various locations. If you follow my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/PenelopeMalbyPhotography, you’ll have seen lots of them I’m sure. Some puppies, some kittens, some very senior dogs too which is always special to do. My own Lola is 12 yrs old now, so all the photos I have of her are special.
We’ve also bought a house in Norfolk (http://www.eastrustoncottages.co.uk/property_whitecottage.php) which took up a lot of time at the end of last year – furnishing a whole house from scratch was brilliant fun. Getting together the artwork was even more fun! lots of my favourite artists feature in the cottage, and some of my photography as well of course! We have a pretty spectacular view from the back garden! if you click on the East Ruston Cottages link there are plenty more photos there. The cottage is really suitable for dogs, no close neighbours, a fully enclosed huge garden, and it’s just so comfy, cosy and welcoming. We did our best to make it the perfect holiday home for people with dogs.
This photo of Lola is above the living room fireplace – that’s Happisburgh beach, which is 10 mins walk from the cottage.
I’ve also been working hard with Dogs Today Magazine, and have had 5 front covers to date which is very exciting!
This is the latest one, the June issue which isn’t out yet!
In March, I shot for two days at Crufts Dog Show, I had a press pass which was brilliant and gave me access to everywhere. Dogs Today did a 6 page feature with mostly my images which again was wonderful.
These two were my favourite images I think! the pickpocketing Poodle, and the knackered Borzoi cuddling his Dad at the end of a long day!
Signing off now as I have puppy and kitten photos to edit, and I promise to post more often!
