Oh, hello there! I’m reminiscing about my days as a dog model earlier this year for #barkzealand. Not sure why I was behind this bush pulling a stupid face but apparently it makes a nice photo 📷🐶

Say hello to this darling beagle Lulu, who is 14 years young! She's one of the best dog models in all of New Zealand! When she saw the bright colors forming in the sky, she asked to have her photo taken with the deep blues and vibrant orange as her backdrop. She hopped up on this big stone and after snacking on a few treats, she promptly gave us her best blue steel pose. #Zoolander . . . . . #barkzealand #beagle #beaglesofinstagram #dogphotography #dogphotographer #newzealand #cromwell #queenstown #travelphotographer #petphotographyretreats #hairofthedogblog #nwadogphotographer #nwa #barkansas

Run your dog. Not your mouth. Honestly this is something I have been thinking about a lot. The dog world can be brutal with a capital B. There is so much crap that can be said behind your back but at the end of the day they can talk the talk but can't walk it. The proof is in the pudding. However you wanna say it, your hard work is shown in your dogs. If you can't prove to me that you walk the talk then I have very little respect for you. Yeah shit happens but if you don't do anything to change or improve you have lost my respect. At the end of the day, our dogs tell the world what goes on behind closed doors. So, before you wanna say anything. RUN YOUR DOG. NOT YOUR MOUTH. Photo credit to @brighteyesphotosdc from #BarkZealand how gorgeous is this?!

I’m so incredibly excited to finally be able to share this news! I was selected as one of the five winners across New Zealand and Australia in the Sony Alpha Animal Portrait Instagram Photo Contest!! Being a Sony user since their first SLR came out, I was beyond excited when this competition was announced and began entering images straight away! The contest ran over two months with winners selected for their country receiving a voucher for the Sony Store and entry into the overall global draw, which will take place at the end of September. I couldn’t have done it without @gracieandwillow and the amazing location that is Bob’s Cove in Queenstown and of course with the amazing gear that Sony produces! Big thanks to @sonyaustralia for creating this competition and giving me this opportunity. Head over to the @sonyaustralia post to see the other winning entrants images! #gracie #miniatureschnauzer #gracieandwillow #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #bobscove #queenstown #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofnz #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #sonyalphanz #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

Yes, it’s still raining out there! Anyone else midweek just wishing for a little reprieve from the cold wet weather and just a little peek of sun to help us get through the rest of the week? Here’s Griff in Cromwell earlier this year hiding out in one of the old historic buildings waiting for the autumn rain storm we had then to stop! Griff was such a pleasure to photograph and it’s such a shame due the rain we couldn’t take more! Griff’s peek out into the world is very fitting for how I’m feeling today, checking to see if there’s anything better on the horizon! #griff #jackrussell #tanandwhite #jackrussellsofig #jackrusselllife #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #cromwell #oldcromwelltown #queenstown #nzlandscapes #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofnz #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #sonyalphanz #sonyalphaanimalportrait

Finally getting around to making an album of my New Zealand trip and I needed more photos!! I went back through and found this gem of the stunning Niko. The way the golden light shines on his white fur warms my heart. I miss everything about this place.

I've been a bit quiet lately, so I thought it might be a good time to let you know a little about me. 🐾 This is me, and this image is by the very talented @samhaddixphoto. We were high in the mountains around Queenstown, NZ, with the sun setting behind the epic mountain views. I don't get in front of a camera very often, so this was a change for me. 🐾 So now you know what I look like, if you spot me around, say hi and tell me about your most awesome pet! 🐾 Why am I a bit quiet? Well, truth be told, photography isn't my only job...I wish it was though. I'm working towards it. I also work a little in my husbands towing business. Mostly admin and bookkeeping these days, but I do love getting out driving the truck too. I also have a full time job with St John WA. 🐾 Add in to the mix a bit of volunteering for St John Ambulance and SAFE too. 🐾 Despite all these things, I am determined to do what I love, which is photograph your pets. It is the thing that gives me the most joy ❤ 🐾 #broomewa #lovebroome #broomephotographer #petphotographer #dogphotographer #epicmountainviews #thisisme #westernaustralia #notenoughhoursintheday

Who else has a pup that loves the water so much they’ll brave it no matter how cold? How Willow braved the cold water at Bob’s Cove I will never know. Willow was so focussed and waited ever so patiently for her Dad to throw the stick over and over again. As beautiful as the water looked in its glorious green hues, it was very early morning and so cold! I was nowhere near brave enough to embrace the cold water, but Willow couldn’t wait to get back in! I admire her tenacity greatly! #willow #germanshepherdmix #black #blackdogsofinstagram #gracieandwillow #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #bobscove #queenstown #nzlandscapes #discovernz #outdoorswithdogs #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofnz #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #sonyalphanz #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

Barney is back, with his bubbles! Couldn't resist another shot of this bouncy young man, levitating around in the air while trying to catch those pesky bubbles. 😬 🤪⁠ ⁠ Barney is a Border Collie, but you could be forgiven for thinking he's an Aussie Shepherd with that gorgeous blue merle and tan colouring! I have Aussies myself and even I was fooled when I first met him. 🤓⁠ ⁠ #bordercollie #bordercolliesofinstagram #bluemerlebordercollie #leapingdogs #jumpingdogs #dogsandbubbles #arrowtownnz #petphotographyworkshop #dogmodel #athleticdogs #activedogs #actiondogphotography #dogsinaction #workingdog #dogphotography #dogphotographer #barkzealand

#repost @wortandflea ・・・ The stunning Ollie at Coronet Peak in Queenstown, backlit by the golden glow of the sun as it came down behind the hills. The views and the gorgeous light were something quite special on this day. @ollietheweebordercollie was another incredibly well trained pup. I was so impressed at his stay ability, happily posing for us and patiently waiting for his treat reward. Such a good boy. #ollie #bordercollie #creamandwhite #bordercolliesofinstagram #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #coronetpeak #queenstown #nzlandscapes #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofnz #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #sonyalphanz #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

Flynn the Border Collie (by the way, don't they have some pretty coloured Border Collies over in NZ?!) was one of our models for #barkzealand in April earlier this year. 🇳🇿⁠ ⁠ He and his buddy Barney were the perfect action models, sitting and staying, then racing towards us while our attendees practiced focusing and tracking dogs in action. Not once, but over and over again! So lovely to have such well trained and obliging doggy models. 🐕😁⁠ ⁠ #bordercollie #bordercollies #bordercolliesofinstagram #arrowtownnz #workingdog #dogphotography #dogphotographer #petphotographyretreats #petphotography #petphotographer #dogsinaction

Meet Barney - and his bubbles! 😂⁠🛁⁠ ⁠ Barney was one of our #barkzealand models and actually modelled for us a few times throughout the two weeks we were in Queenstown running the pet photography workshops. A super active, super well trained active Border Collie - he also has somewhat of a bubble obsession! Once his dad brought these out to play, he leapt around like crazy in the air trying to catch them - giving us some awesome photo opportunities! 📷⁠ You can follow Barney’s adventures at @mattandbarney 👍 ⁠ #bordercollie #bluemerlebordercollie #notanaussie #bubbledog #jumpingdog #arrowtown #arrowtownnz #wilcoxgreen #dogphotography #petphotography #petphotographyworkshop

I'm sure that many people might be uncomfortable or nervous with a very large and excited six month old Bernese Mountain Dog hurtling towards them at breakneck speed...but not me! Gretchen is overflowing with enthusiasm and energy and I loved photographing her while she galloped around in the greenery. Those floppy ears and that big smile just had me grinning down the lens of my camera...and then giggling out loud every single time that Gretchen nearly bowled me over! #floppyearsphotography #barkzealand #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinstaworld #hairofthedogblog #bernesemountaindog #berners #instaberner #instabernese #bmdofinstagram #berneseofinstagram #bernesemountaindogsofinstagram #bernesemountaindogpuppy #puppiesofinstagram #instapuppy #dogsofnz #petphotographer #sydneypetphotography #adventuredogs #dogsofbark #bestwoof #bestwoof10k

As per my earlier post of Barney with his gorgeous head tilt, the word ‘bubbles’ is what would illicit this from him. So of course what else would be his reward other than actual bubbles at the end of a session for being such a good boy! This first image is my absolute favourite one of Barney & Matt playing with the bubbles. Barney’s very happy, lolling tongue smile at finally getting his bubbles, makes me laugh every time! For more bubbles swipe to see the lead up anticipation, action jumping and all knackered out, after all the fun! A big thanks to @mattandbarney for making this one of the most fun sessions I had all week in Queenstown. Barney is so well trained, so big kudos to Matt for the hard work he puts in with Barney to achieve this. #barney #bordercollie #bluemerle #tricolour #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #shotoverriver #queenstown #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofnz #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #sonyalphanz #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

Bob’s Cove really is quite a stunning place. Even when it’s freezing cold! It was an early morning and cold start at Bob’s Cove but was worth it for the beautiful scenery. Making sure Gracie wasn’t out of her jacket for too long, as she posed for a few brief moments in front of this gorgeous vista. Hands down my favourite image from the Bob’s Cove session. Gracie of @gracieandwillow duo, was quite the little supermodel and happy to pose in return for a few treats and pats. Thanks Gracie for helping me make some beautiful images! #gracie #miniatureschnauzer #gracieandwillow #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #bobscove #queenstown #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofnz #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #sonyalphanz #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

The art of doing nothing. --- This can actually be rather hard for our dogs. Why would they dog nothing when they could follow you? Bring you a toy? Go for a walk? Well, I like my chill time. Without my chill time, especially after working with everyone else's dogs all day, I can get rather grumpy. I am tired, I am hungry and I just want to sit and watch crap tv. Mentally I don't always feel up to training or walking the dogs or even a quick game of tug, it can use up a lot of my already limited energy and then I end up getting grumpy with myself, them and everything. So, i make sure my dogs know it's okay to do nothing! You can lay down and just nap. You can chill on the couch and chew a lamb's ear. That they don't constantly need me to do stuff with them. That when I sit on the chair, put my feet up and watch mind numbing tv it's time to just relax. I know so many people have schedules for themselves and their dogs, that's cool but my mental health changes rapidly, I run out of spoons fast some days! I need my dogs to be okay with skipping a walk or missing a training session. If I do miss them though I make sure to give them mental stimulation in the form of interactive food toys and I can just leave them with. I have taught them that there is a time to be calm and chill and it can be at anytime of the day. Schedules get thrown out the window and we just roll with it. So, does your dog know the art of doing nothing? We were inspired by the very talented @dogtraineramy to work hard on this and I think you should too! #theartofdoingnothing #dogtraining --- Photo by @coffeeandhops from #BarkZealand --- 💸 DISCOUNT CODES 💸 DUSTY10 - @pawsandclawsfashion Dusty10 - @mates4lifenz DINGOS10 - @ohmyfluffydog

Has a cheekier little face ever existed? This is Blue - she was only six months old when this photo was taken and I bet she's already twice this size! Blue is a gorgeous little pup who I met in a magical little forest alongside the most perfect turquoise lagoon in New Zealand. That morning was one of my favourite photography sessions of all time and this is one of my favourite photos from the day. I just can't resist Blue's happy grin and wide eyed puppy joy! #floppyearsphotography #barkzealand #blueheeler #cattledog #workingdogsofinstagram #puppiesofinstagram #blueheelerpuppy #cattledogpuppy #hairofthedogblog #dogsofbark #dogsofinstaworld #weeklyfluff #bestwoof #bestwoof10k #adventuredogs #dogswhohike #dogsthathike #hikingdogs #dogsofnz #dogsofnewzealand #petphotographer #petphotography #dogphotographer

Our shoot at working sheep farm Queensberry Ridges near Cromwell in New Zealand went down as the favourite out of all the shoots we had in week two of #barkzealand for some of our workshop attendees. ❤⁠ ⁠ Seeing dogs at work, doing what they were bred to do, was nothing short of amazing, especially for those who'd never seen dogs working sheep before. 🐑🐕⁠ ⁠ The golden morning light being diffused through the ground fog was a bonus and really gave the whole experience a magical feel. ✨☀️⁠ ⁠ Huge thanks to Gavin and his team for giving us a wonderful sheepdog demo! An experience we'll never forget.⁠ ⁠ #sheepdog #newzealand #workingdog #herdingdog #headingdog #purenewzealand #newzealandsheep #morninglight #cromwellnz #queensberryridges #sheepfarm #woolproduction #sheepfarming #dogphotography #petphotographyretreat

While the sunrise start for our sheep farm shoot was a bit of a struggle for some of our attendees (okay, me too 😆) it was just another day for the owner Gavin, who arrived complete with bare legs at close to 0°C temps! They breed these New Zealanders tough! 🥶⁠ ⁠ It was amazing to see how he worked with his team of dogs to herd the sheep, using the heading dogs to keep them in a tight pack and the super loud Huntaway breed dogs to keep them moving by barking. I've never seen Huntaways at work before (they don't seem to be used in Australia or elsewhere in the world) - it was certainly pretty different! 🐑⁠ ⁠ #sheepfarm #huntaway #headingdog #workingdog #purenewzealand #newzealand #visitnewzealand #farmlife #farmersrock #dogphotography #barkzealand #dogphotographyworkshop #photographyretreat #morning #goldenlight #cromwellnz #queensberryridges

Why train my dogs so much? For opportunities like these. I was chosen to have Dusty and Cas model for the #BarkZealand in early April. I love training and showing what my dogs can do, this was no exception! I had previously worked with Craig so he knew me and my dogs but we had been working on more things just for this! Having well trained dogs ready for any situation gives you opportunities like these, you must work hard to make the opportunities. This was a dream come true, not only get my dogs photographed by many talented photographers but to meet and get a photo from my all time favourite pet photographer Kaylee Greer ( @dogbreathphotography ). It has been a long journey but training my dogs has opened so many amazing pathways. Most importantly? I train so we can strengthen our bond. To show everyone that ANYONE can do this. There is nothing stopping you, not dog breed, not background, not mental health. You fight for what you want and you get it!!!! --- 💸 DISCOUNT CODES 💸 DUSTY10 - @pawsandclawsfashion Dusty10 - @mates4lifenz THEDUSTYDINGOS - @coatsforcanines DINGOS10 - @ohmyfluffydog

Barney was another amazingly well trained pup I photographed in Queenstown, this time alongside the Shotover River. The secret to this gorgeous head tilt was the word ‘bubbles’. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Barney and his owner Matt. Barney is such a sweet, beautiful, energetic pup with the most amazing luxurious coat. I will reveal later this week what ‘bubbles’ was all about with some great candid action images of @mattandbarney. So stay tuned if you want to see what it’s all about! #barney #bordercollie #bluemerle #tricolour #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #shotoverriver #queenstown #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofnz #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #sonyalphanz #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

How well trained are your pups and do they know any tricks? It was an absolute pleasure to photograph Dusty and Castiel of @thedustydingos , at Coronet Peak in Queenstown. The stunning views and the beautiful blue cloudy sky made for some fantastic images. Dusty and Castiel are so seriously well trained it’s phenomenal!! Big kudos to Mady for her hard work in training these two - some serious skill and dedication. My own crew are unfortunately not that well trained at all and now they are all seniors, if they aren’t already deaf, their trick is implementing their well earned right to selective hearing! 😉 #dusty #staffy #castiel #germanshepherd #mixes #rescues #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #coronetpeak #queenstown #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofnz #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #sonyalphanz #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

Chessie the Border Collie was one of our #barkzealand dog models back in March this year, on the banks of the Shotover River near Queenstown in New Zealand. To get this shot of her waving, I worked with @tiffanywilsonpetphotography - we did some on-the-fly training to teach her this behaviour!⁠ ⁠ Being a Border Collie, Chessie was super smart and picked it up really quickly. What a good girl! 😇⁠ ⁠ If you're interested in coming on our next out-of-this-world pet photography retreat next year in Scotland, we'll be releasing full details on July 8.

I often get asked if it’s just dogs and cats I photograph - the answer is no. I’ve photographed farm animals, lizards and rats! So it’s time for something a little different - sheep. This image was taken on a working sheep farm in Queenstown. The cold weather created this amazing foggy mist as the golden glow of the sun rose and warmed the earth. A massive thank you to Gavin and Ayley for sharing their world with us, it was an amazing experience!

A couple of months ago while in New Zealand, I met this energetic 9 year old border collie named Jess who absolutely LOVED sticks. When I met her and her dad Will, she ran off into the trees near our photo session and came back with a HUGE tree limb, full of branches and covered in dead leaves. It must have been 6 to 7 feet long and it was absolutely hilarious. I'm used to seeing dogs with sticks, not fetch practically entire trees! . As we walked along the winding path, she let her monsterous prize to go in search of a more manageable stick. Once she found it and dropped it near the feet of her dad, the fetch game was on. I was sitting on the ground across from a small stream where her dad would throw the stick and she'd run and search for it among the tall grasses on the other side. She'd then run back to me from across the water and drop the stick, wagging her tail and hopping around, showing her excitement to do it all over again. I'd pick this huge stick up and hand it to her dad, who was standing directly behind me, and he'd throw it again. We did this routine no less than 50 times and Jess smiled like she is in this photo the entire time. . She was having the absolute best time fetching this huge stick. I absolutely loved photographing her and I laughed the next day as my left arm was a little sore from lifting that heavy stick repeatedly. Clearly I need to hit the gym more often. Thanks Jess for the reminder, as you have more energy and strength than me! . #Barkzealand #Arrowtown #NewZealand #DogPhotography #BorderCollie #HairOfTheDog #PetPhotographyRetreats #DogsWithSticks #DogModel #DogsWhoFetch #Fetch

Nina the chocolate Labrador was one of our amazing #barkzealand dog models. She was content to pose beautifully for portraits, but when she was let loose next to the lake at Old Cromwell Town (near Queenstown, NZ) she showed off her action moves in a series of mad-dash runs, interspersed with some swimming!   #chocolatelabradorretriever #chocolatelabrador #chocolatelab #brownlabrador #chocolatelabradors #justlabradors #labradorsofinstagram #chocolatelabradoroftheday #cromwellnz #dogphotographer #dogphotography #dogphotographyworkshop

It was a little cloudy towards the end of our session with Nina, a gorgeous Chocolate lab we worked with during #barkzealand (our awesome, out-of-this-world pet photography retreat back in April this year).

How have I not shared this with you guys yet?! --- When I was in Queenstown about to leave the photoshoot from #BarkZealand I got a message from @furtographynz asking if I was up for a late night shoot under the stars. OF COURSE I WOULD BE!!! It was a bit touch and go but I got to meet @kobe_thekiwi_staffy between photo shoots (which was probably the highlight). There were a few clouds but I decided I would head up the hill to check before I made the drive back to Cromwell. It was stunning so I messaged Craig to bring his butt up there and get these photos! Dusty and Castiel were incredible! They sat on top of a tall, metal, freezing thing while many photographers took photos of them in the freezing cold. By the very small hours of the morning we packed everything and everyone up and headed home. I knew the photos would be amazing but I didn't realize just how amazing. This would not have been accomplished without the many hours of training Dusty and Cas to stay still as they proved that afternoon they would be good for a night shoot. I am so insanely proud of them and so honoured that I got this opportunity of a lifetime! --- Use DUSTY10 to save with @pawsandclawsfashion Use DINGOS10 to save with @ohmyfluffydog --- #milkyway #furtography #nightphoto #dogphotography #dogtraining

I know my business name is Floppy Ears Photography....but I'm such a big fan of Enzo's sticky up puppy ears! I met this gorgeous boy on top of a New Zealand mountain at the end of a big week of dog photography. The sky was blue, the sun was golden, creativity was flowing - the only thing that could possibly make things any better was the appearance of a six month old puppy! Enzo is the baby of the @wolvesofnz / @ohmyfluffydog wolf pack and I wanted to pack him in my bag and bring him all the way back to Sydney. But could you just imagine trying to hide those ears in a carryon bag through airport security?! You can see more photos of Enzo and his brother Niko up on my blog - link to website in my bio. #floppyearsphotography #barkzealand #huskypuppy #bordercolliepuppy #huskyxbordercollie #huskiesofinstagram #puppiesofinstagram #dogsofbark #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinstaworld #hairofthedogblog #magicmarvels #agameoftones #petphotography #sydneypetphotography #adventuredogs #dogsthathike #dogswhohike #bestwoof10k #bestwoof #weeklyfluff #mountaindogs #instahusky #instaborder #ohmyfluffydog #jj_welovepets #jj_forum_welovedogs #jj_forum_2648

Another quick flashback to the awesome dogs of #newzealand. This time the multi-tonal colours of the beautiful Tess

My favourite image of Odin of @thegoodestwolves duo, taken in Arrowtown by Dudley’s Cottage. Odin, a beautiful husky, has the thickest most luxurious coat I’ve ever encountered! Odin was happy to pose and so well behaved, a true gentle giant. It was a pleasure to photograph him. A big thanks to @janvi_deo for bringing Odin all the way down to Queenstown for this! #odin #husky #dog #huskiesofinstagram #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #arrowtown #arrowtownchinesesettlement #queenstown #dudleyscottage #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #dogsofnz #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #sonyalphanz #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

Tonight's #tongueouttuesday is brought to you by Banjo all the way from #barkzealand. On this morning we got up bright and early in a chilly Queenstown and ventured to Shotover River in the cold to get some pics of some sweet pups. Now I don't usually take pics in the cold because I'm a fraidy cat and the chill in the air scares me lol, but it was so worth it to capture some of these beauties. . . #dogsofnewzealand #newzealanddogs #professionaldogphotographer #goldensofig #whitegoldenretriever #retreiversgram #goldenretriever #goldenretrieversofig #goldenretrievergram #retrieversworld #hairofthedogblog #newzealandadventures #shotoverriver #photographyretreat #petphotographer #dogphotographer #professionaldogphotographer #petportraits #makeitmemorable #trizanephotography #dogstagram #dogsofig #dogsdaily #dogsofinstagram #instadogs

fox glacier, bruce bay + west coast // new zealand ------- After the amazingness of #barkzealand , we decided to drive to the west coast, and then drive around the north of the south island back to Christchurch. We booked our first night's accommodation at Bruce Bay, before finding out the road between Fox Glacier & Franz Josef Glacier had been washed out during wild weather the week prior. ------- Even though it meant we had to drive back the way we came, it was totally worth the trip. The scenery was amazing (like the rest of NZ), and I always love watching the sun set over the ocean (something we certainly don't get here in Queensland). ------- #newzealand #foxglacier #nzwestcoast #brilliantbluesky #breathtakinglandscapes #coffeeandhopstravelsessions #coffeeandhopsontheroad

You would think that a blue heeler puppy named Blue would be found in the Australian outback...but I met this cheeky girl in New Zealand! Blue is six months old and a bundle of energy. She wriggled and giggled her way around the lake at Queenstown during our session together - she hopped over logs, hid in bushes, found/carried all the best sticks along the path before chewing on them...and just occasionally she stood still for a photo. With a name like Blue, the dramatic sky and turquoise water felt very appropriate as a backdrop for her - and I feel like the crazy angles in the photo are a good reflection of her huge reserves of energy and zest for life! #floppyearsphotography #barkzealand #blueheelersofinstagram #instaheeler #blueheelerpuppy #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinstaworld #dogsofnz #hikingdogsofinstagram #ig_myshots #animalsco #dailybarker #cattledogsofinstagram #cattledogpuppy #puppiesofinstagram #dogsthathike #pawz #newzealandvacations #purenewzealand #queenstownnz #hairofthedogblog #petphotographyfeatures #dog_features #excellent_dogs

This is the lovely Willow, one half of @gracieandwillow , at an apple orchard in Cromwell. It was raining and cold, but we managed to seek shelter under the branches of the apple trees for one quick photograph before calling it a rain day! It was such a beautiful location and orchard and one I hope to visit again one day. #willow #shepherdmix #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #cromwell #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #orchard #apple #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

What are some of your all time favourite dog breeds? Bernese Mountain Dogs are definitely in my top five - I love them so much! I don't have too many opportunities to meet them in Sydney so I was beyond excited when I met Gretchen in New Zealand and had the chance to photograph her. Gretchen (doesn't she have the best name ever!) is six months old and absolutely gorgeous - and doesn't she know it! She sat and posed like a rockstar for us in the golden light...and then hooned around like a race car to make up for all that time sitting still using her best manners. If you could get any breed of dog in the world (putting aside cost, climate, rescue vs breeder, size logistics etc) what would you get?

My second favourite image from the working sheep farm in Queenstown. A good boy, watching and patiently waiting for the signal to herd his flock. It’s always interesting seeing which image is people’s favourite, this one or the last one posted. Tell me which is yours? #workingdogs #herding #sheepfarm #dog #dogphotographernz #petphotographynz #queenstown #barkzealand #hairofthedogblog #petphotographerauckland #dogsofinstagram #newzealand #dogsofnewzealand #newzealanddogs #nzdogs #farmdogs #ruralnz #sonyalphaanimalportrait #sonyalphaanz #A7RM3

The gorgeous Nina waiting, maybe praying, but definitely hoping with all her might that we might let her go back into the lake during our #barkzealand photo shoot. Her people were so awesome and went with the flow when she suddenly veered off and went for a dip. 😬 thankfully they came prepared and had a nice cozy towel to dry her all off. . . #newzealanddogs #dogsofnewzealand #professionaldogphotographer #professionalpetphotography #dogphotography #dogphotoshoot #dogphoto #dogphotog #dogphotography #animalphotography #dogsdaily #trizanephotography #makeitmemorable #chocolatelab #chocolatelabsofinstagram #waterdog #dogswhoswim
