read my story

Fur & Fables is born from combining my love of photography, being out in nature and dogs (friends have lost me on countless occasions because I have spotted a dog across a crowded pub/park/street and ‘had’ to say hello).

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Fur & Fables, formerly Whippet Snippets, was born in September 2013, but the journey to get here went a long way back. At school I loved art and my final GCSE project was based around nature. When I ‘grew up’ I wanted to be a vet, an RSPCA officer, an author or a fashion designer. (I also wanted to be an air traffic controller but that doesn’t fit into the story quite so well!)

I now have a job where I am outdoors with dogs and am creating portraits of them in our beautiful, majestic, countryside; a visual storytelling so to speak.

GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE MORE

  • I’m a self taught photographer, and I hope I will always be learning something new about it.
  • My family is my two whippets who are my life.
  • I grew up in Manchester, lived Surrey and Sussex for over 20 years before relocating to the west of Cumbria where I forgot how little the North sees the sun compared to the South!
  • Past obsessions have included; ancient Egypt, running, twitter, Robert Downey Jr., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Audrey Hepburn, Pulp Fiction. Photography and coffee are the only two that have stuck!
  • I have eclectic tastes. I read everything from John Steinbeck to Stephen King and listen to Dr Hook, The Carpenters, Linkin Park. I seriously think music can affect your mood. I’m currently reading anything to do with how the brain and mind works and am fascinated with how we have the ability to control our health.
