Passionate about photography and a great dog lover, a British photographer reconciles his 2 passions by making sublime canine portraits.
Pete Jones , 51, is from Liverpool . He had discovered a real passion for photography while traveling the world, then had taken to photographing his dog, a female Cairn Terrier by the name of Cassie .
From there he specialized in dog photos. Portraits of canines that he makes in his studio, on special occasions or during simple walks in the forest. The settings are beautifully elaborate and the dogs appear at their best in front of his lens, whether they strike a pose or are photographed in action.
