The history of mans best-friend is a heart-warming one and our canine companions play such an important part of our everyday life's that it is my pleasure to be photographing all the incredibly beautiful bonds that people share with their dogs.
I love to capture each unique relationship between dog and owner and to hear of the joy they bring to each-other.
They say never work with animals and yet most days end covered in dog-hair, slobber, treats and mud and I wouldn't have it any other way, it is an absolute delight to be spending my day with tails wagging and consequently happy faces.
This project was inspired by my late great uncle and painter Craigie Aitchison and his beloved Belington Terriers who were always by his side and in his paintings.
My favourite images are being put together to create a book ' People and their Dogs' of which the proceeds shall go to a truly wonderful charity The Cinnamon Trust
