My Work

About Emma

Emma is a Melbourne based pet photographer who is passionate about animals which can be clearly seen in her pet photography.

Her passion for photographing dogs began years ago whilst working as a volunteer fundraiser for Stafford Rescue Victoria. Emma began taking pictures of rescued Staffordshire Bull Terriers to aid in their re-homing. She found a unique bond and skill within herself enabling her to capture their true personalities and character of which they have in abundance.

Since then the demand for Emma’s style of  dog photography has grown.

Emma enjoys photographing all animals large and small whilst still photographing unwanted dogs and the occasional rescue cat to help promote their adoption. She is trained in basic dog obedience/behaviour which comes in handy on a photo shoot.

Before joining Stafford Rescue Victoria 7 years ago Emma helped raise funds for other charities including the RSPCA and the Salvation Army.

“My style is a relaxed photo shoot where all involved have fun. I photograph outdoors in natural light when your pet is doing what they love to do,these are the images memories are made of. My goal is to capture your pets personality. I love what I do”

A little bit of history on the Staffordshire Bull Terrier .


The modern breed is one that has a temperament suitable as a companion dog. It is a dog worthy to show and was accepted by The Kennel Club as the Staffordshire Bull Terrier on 25 May 1935. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club was formed in June 1935. It is unusual for a breed to be recognised without a club in existence first, and even more unusual for there not to have been a breed standard in place. A standard was not drawn up until June 1935 at the Old Cross Guns, a Black Country pub in Cradley Heath where 30 Stafford enthusiasts gathered and devised the standard and elected the club’s first secretary, Joseph Dunn, a well-known figure connected with the breed.

Challenge certificates were awarded to the breed in 1938, and the first champions were Ch. Gentleman Jim (bred by Joseph Dunn) and Ch. Lady Eve (owned by Joseph Dunn), both taking titles in 1939. The breed was recognised in the U.S. by the American Kennel Club in 1975.To read more check the link below ;


Dog Sports -Flyball

There are several dog sports anyone can compete in Flyball is one of them .Let me remind you know not to blink as you could miss part of the action.Fast is an understatement, 1/1,000 of a second wasn’t enough for one or two of the competing Staffordshire Bull Terriers.You will have to get used to all the noise as the dogs are quite vocal waiting to take their turn but it is well worth watching and even better to compete I am sure .

If this is something you and your dog would enjoy here is the link ;

I wish I could be as relaxed as this little man when it comes to my Google rankings ! I blog ,I post on a regular basis to Google + and I don’t just add all keywords re pet photography when I do post .However it eludes me no matter what I try and I am not convinced all the emails I get from various bushiness’s promising me a page one ranking if I employ them will work either , there has to be another way.I have noticed one particular pet photographer in Melbourne never moves from the first page or the first listed position all I can say is she must be a genius in the art of SEO .

Staffy Photographer Melbourne

I have seen lots for posts re dog breeds in particular this breed who are much maligned by the media and more often than not the dog in question is not even a Staffordshire Bull terrier .

A snippet from www.petguide.com 

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier gets this temperament from a rich and sometimes ugly history that included dog fighting. Although this checkered past might be a turn-off for some people looking for dog breeds, actually meeting a Staffordshire Bull Terrier will yield an unexpected friendly experience that can actually be quite endearing. If you’re looking for a city dog that is content to live in your apartment and sit alone for hours at a time, you should probably move on. For a variety of other tastes, however, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a perfect companion.
