Creating a portrait is more than just copying from a photograph. A successful portrait requires technical knowledge of the breed, bone and muscle structure, how lighting counteracts the foreshortening of the camera, how light bounces through the eye while capturing a sense of the spirit of the animal and a sensitivity to, and a deep appreciation of, the special relationship between master and companion. 

I aim to capture this and produce sensitive, powerful and beautiful work.
