On Wednesday I met up with a lovely couple from Ampthill, near Bedford on holiday in Pickering, to photograph their dog Jack. Jack is a 6 year old rescue Curly Coated Retriever and thankfully the April showers held off long enough on Wednesday morning for me to capture Jack having fun on a walk. Curly Coats are an uncommon breed with only 60 puppies born in this country last year but have been around since the middle of the 1800′s. They are the largest of the retriever breeds and as you can gather from their name they have a coat of tight curls either in liver brown or black. Just don’t mistake them for a Labradoodle! Here’s a few photographs from the shoot: Have a nice day.
The Saturday just gone was one of very few Saturday’s this year where I did not have a wedding. Therefore I spent the Morning photographing a beautiful 5 year old black Labrador called Pimms! The weather was slightly overcast but incredibly mild for this time of year and allowed for some very atmospheric photographs on Saltergate brow near the Hole of Horcum. My job was made much easier because Pimms is so well behaved and would sit and stay on command. After we had exhausted the photo opportunities at Saltergate we headed to Thornton Le Dale to get some shots of her in the water which, like a true lab, she loves! Here are a few photographs of Pimms:
