This is me at Darlington with one of my girls Rountfelley Beajewelled - Dot (Photo courtesy of Jackie Minett)
My name is Tony Minett and I have owned or have had dogs around me for all of my life. I began taking photos of them at shows over seven years ago when my wife Jackie and I first started to show our first Parson Russell Terrier - Bea. Having always had an interest in photography it was good to start using a DSLR after spending years suffering the trials and tribulations of shooting with a standard SLR camera (and of course it is so much cheaper than sending away a film and getting one or two back that you were happy with!)
This is Bea and I just love the texture and colour within her coat. She is a KC Champion, provided us with three beautiful litters of pups but most of all as with all our dogs is a much loved family pet who provides us with so much entertainment.
Parson Russell Terriers are my passion but I appreciate aspects of all breeds and really enjoy capturing that special image that owners crave. I concentrate on the dog in its purest form so will not dress a dog (sorry but it's just not my thing) I will however capture a dog in it's natural surroundings where they and the owner are most comfortable.
I hope that you enjoy this site and that I can give you the image of your best friend that you can be proud of
