Please understand that these are only proofs. They are not representative of the high quality photograph that you will receive after ordering but just a representation so that you may see orientation and subject matter.

I now use SmugMug as my sales site. Smugmug allows you full cropping to your hearts desire. That's great for both of us as I don't have to guess how you might want your image cropped and you get to crop exactly as you would like. There is only one problem and that is with images where the subject is very small in the frame. Those of you with small breeds are certainly familiar with that issue. There is not much I can do about that unless I only shoot when your dog is within range to fill the frame. I choose not to do that because I believe you might want images of your dog competing in events even if they are a little small in the picture. PLEASE, be careful with how much you crop your pictures. There is no magic program running behind the scenes that will warn you that you've over cropped. Try to be realistic. I have the option of overriding your crop and will do so if I decide it will result in an inferior product. If you have any specific concerns about cropping on an image, please contact me before placing your order at and we can discuss it.

Any requests for image changes such as removal of leashes, background objects etc. must be made via email prior to placing the order. It's best to wait until I have responded in case there are complications with the request. In some cases extra charges will apply.

I am now including low res digital copies sent via email for any print that gets ordered. You can now share your prints with friends via facebook and email etc without going to the trouble of scanning them yourself!

Thanks for looking!

Had a wonderful time this weekend shooting at the Bakersfield trial! So great to see all my Southern Cal friends! I'll be working on the images over the next few days. Keep and eye below for links to the Sat and Sun pictures. Congratulations to everyone that got legs or finished titles!

All images for Bakersfield are now online and available to review and order! Thanks for your patience! Please note that there were too many WIN photos to edit the photo sign with the titles earned prior to sale. If you buy one of the win photos, I will edit it as normal and then digitally add the title earned to the sign board at that time. Same goes for the portraits and leashes that are visable on the grass. I will edit those out before sending off to the lab. Thanks!
