About Us

"Whether it is a dog catching a Frisbee, a wild chase on the beach or a horse jumping over a hurdle, the graceful movement is exciting and satisfying to capture every single time" says Sven. "The connection and interaction with the owners and being part of a family is the ultimate in the lives of our animal companions. Chewing on a bone on the back veranda, napping in the owner's lap, being washed and groomed or playing with the kids are the moments we want capture in your photos".

Our specialty is to capture amazing action shots, as well as portraits of the dogs with their owners in the familiar home environment. We normally photograph in two locations; typically one location is the beach, the park or the paddock and the other location is your home.

It was so easy to work with Sven. The Boys loved having the photos taken and Mitch enjoyed all the extra attention. The photos came up great!

All i can say is WOW! Sven was able to capture Sammi in mid flight. You can clearly see her eagerness in the photo.

It was great to have the photo-shoot on the beach. Chalky loved taking the role of performer. I really feel we got a lot of terrific action photography.

Peter – Chalky

Absolutely amazing photos! The way Sven captured Jasper powering through the water and playing at the beach was great. Next ill be having Sven capture Jasper catching the frisbee.

Tony – Jasper

There are moments that pass in the blink of an eye… Sven can not only see them, but capture them on film.

Emile – Sammi & Dargo

I am thrilled with the action photos of Violetta. The clarity and the detail in the photos of the high speed chace on the beach is amazing!
