1. About

Hello visitors, and thank-you so much for stopping by!

Classes are over, back-to-back internships completed, and I received my Photographic Technology degree in Biocommunications this past May!!  Over the past 2-3 years, your responses to my posts have indeed helped sustain my passion for my photography.  My only hope is that these images have improved and that they reflect the lessons learned in school.  I certainly feel they have, but your “likes” and “comments” continue to confirm it.

2013 has been a year of some soul-searching, occasional anxieties about the future, both immediate and further on down the road.  Several things I kept coming back to were a life-long passion for animals, my love of photography and simply and literally, a walk in the park.  Love walks, pooches and photos.  With the help of a friend, I am now building not one, but two web sites, which I anticipate coming to fruition within a month or two.

One will concentrate strictly on my photography; the second is going to the dogs!!  I have begun a small business, “ALL THINGS DOGS, LLC”.  In November, I went downtown, got the company name registered, purchased a privilege license, and will begin advertising in a local pets-related magazine, “Happy Tails”.  Next comes the bonding and insurance.  Yes, there’s a lot of preliminary work involved, but for now, am working on good, old-fashioned word of mouth.


For now, I’ve added another page, aptly named, “All Things Dogs”.  Lots of photos coming down the pike until I can get them moved to the new web site.  So, please stay tuned!!

Again, I appreciate your taking a peek.  Deep thanks from a grateful photographer.

    Hey Laurie, wanted to leave a message here after our recent exchange of “likes”. You have an incredible blog going with some stunning photography. You have the gift and the eye, looking forward to seeing more. Myself, I’m just an amateur but i love learning about photography and just can’t stop taking photos – so much to learn eh. And now you know I’m from Canada (ending the sentence with “eh”). Cheers

    Hi Laurie,
    Thanks very much for coming back to so many of my previous posts and the kind comments! Your photos were already attractive; I am sure your formal studies could only mean they are now exceptionally brilliant. Where I am based, we do not have degrees in Photographic Technology, otherwise I would have liked to do something similar in my retirement. I can see you are very dedicated to and enjoy photography very much. Best wishes with your future endeavors and have a great week 🙂

    Hi, Laurie, thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog! If you take a look at my garden blog (now linked to my gravatar — I didn’t realize you could choose), you’ll see why I’m liking all your wildlife and macro shots. All the best with your studies!
