Two lovely dogs, brother and sister that lived in a conservatory, have been rescued by the Labrador Lifeline Trust as neither is wanted by their owners.

MaddisonBut our real concern is Maddison. She is a 9 year old, very sweet choci lab. Sadly she is going blind…let that sink in a little.

It makes me so so sad. The idea of any animal fumbling around in the dark is just terrible. Especially one that should be catching balls, chasing squirrels and seeing her furfriends.

And this is where you come in.

It will cost £4,500 to save her sight. Yes that’s right we can all help to save her sight! This is exactly why Aly, Sage and all the woofs, owners and myself have got together to bring you this fantastic calendar. We need to contribute as much as we possibly can and help to save her eyes.

You can read about the making of here but this is the very last calendar Sage will be doing. She is retiring gracefully.

So for Aly, for Sage and most of all Maddison buy a calendar. Buy 5 calendars. Spread the word. Share this on Facebook or twiiter or by email.

100% of all the profits go to help Maddison!

Just buy and share. Thank you!

The fabulous calendars, available in both compact desktop and stunning wall hanging, will feature these beautiful images. I chose to make the photographs real – to reflect the animals we all know and love. I hope that you can see your woof in what these energetic, crazy, posing and stunning creatures are getting up to.

Aly, Sage and I want you to enjoy having the images in your personal space as much as feeling good from the money that will be raised!

Imagine if Maddison could no longer do any of these things….

ZAP! POW! BIFF! That’s what it was like visiting this amazingly rambunctious household today. Mad mad energy of 3 kids…2 boys!! Taking photographs whilst being climbed on, tickled, pulled and generally used as a climbing frame. I wouldn’t have it any other way…

Lego seemed to the peace maker of choice – the studied concentration as spaceships were made and then pulled apart. It came back to me then – how many finger nails I had lost trying to prize those little flat squares apart!

Then off to a wood. The youngest, making her slow but determined way through the falling autumn leaves. The boys running ahead shouting about the monsters, the dens, no this way!!! Wait! A sleeping hedgehog (chestnut case…!)

Mum and Dad so clean to start with but covered in mud in the end. That’s how it should be. A family of five. It doesn’t get more spontaneous or full of love as this.

It began a while ago. The planning and plotting: Sage’s 2015 Calendar. Its an amazingly wonderful idea started a few years back by Aly and all in the name of raising money for charity. We had locations in mind, the make-up artist was hired (I need all the help I can get,) clothing was made (!) and the weather was booked (British.)

And then it began to get complicated. We all know that this will be Sage’s last – a girl has to retire gracefully. But, well, she took a turn for the worse. Hundreds of her fans, maybe even thousands have been willing her well. Sending her love and energy. Desperate to see this irrepressibly tough and gorgeous girl get well.

We changed plans. The word went out. It reminded me of the “Twilight Bark” in One Hundred and One Dalmations. Sage needed help – she couldn’t pull this one off on her own. Suddenly 1 became 3 became 6 became 9.

“Sage and Friends” was created!

She must have picked up on what was going on. Saturday morning came – perfectly drizzly and with soft soft light. She bounded at me as I opened the door. Sage was back! And here are some of the images to prove it.

We couldn’t have done it without everyone’s help. Thank you! Though the next time I have the idea of photographing 9 dogs in 15 minute slots one after the other…give me a bone and tell me to shut up!

The calendar will be coming very soon…but here is a very small selection of the images

Autumn Morning Swinley Forest

~click to see larger~

Finally it’s that time of year as autumn ever so gently makes its presence felt. Colder, crisper mornings and the landscape caressed with early morning mist.

If you are lucky, then the sun will make an appearance. Low slanting sun if I am being picky. Checking the weather forecast last thing at night and first thing in the morning now becomes second nature.

At this time of year I seem to spend a good deal of time gazing out of the car window as the landscape rushes past. Surreptitious glances as I travel past “my wood” on the way to work.

This morning was no different and I was parking the car before I had even thought about it. I usually have a camera with me…sadly I had forgotten my tripod. Still in for a penny…oh and 15 minutes to find something worthwhile. Nothing like pressure.

The thought occurred to me as I looked at the webs littering the pine trees…I am so glad I am not potential spider food – how does anything survive!

[Photographed with a Fuji XT1 55-200mm @ 120mm F7.1 1/640 sec. Early morning light and mist meant that the sun was doubly filtered.

I had no hesitation in pointing my camera straight at it, relying on the superb dynamic range of the Fuji to cope with extreme range of light.

This is just a single unfiltered image and the rendering of the soft light in the background to the spiders webs in the front is just wonderful]

That honest and warm chuckle that seems to come from the very tips of their toes. You just can't help but smile and laugh in return. As Cerys pulled back my hands to see my eyes and my repeated "peep-po" the laughter came again.

Truly there is nothing so infectious as the gurgling laughter of a baby. That honest and warm chuckle that seems to come from the very tips of their toes. You just can’t help but smile and laugh in return. As Cerys pulled back my hands to see my eyes and my repeated “peep-po” the laughter came again. Everything was of interest: my face, what was under the carpet…my camera. Everything was chewed and tasted. It appears that wooden giraffes are especially yum.

When it all gets too much, well time for a sleep, mid photo shoot. Quite right. And what better place to do it then in the arms of your loving parents. Gently rocked by the warm winds of summers last gasp and the slowly turning leaves of the beeches in the Royal Crescent. What a wonderful moment and what a privilege to photograph.

Find out if you have won a landscape print of your choice! Thank you very much to everyone who entered.

The post Winners of my July print give away appeared first on Guy Aubertin Photography.

As a thank you for all the support for my photography from customers and followers on social media,  I ran a competition on my Facebook page. The prize was to give away 2 mounted and signed 18×12 inch images from my portfolio. All you had to do was let me know what your favourite holiday location was!

July-winners

 

I was quite overwhelmed by the response with 191 entries in 24 hours or so. Unsurprisingly Scotland seemed to be the most popular holiday location – along with lots of other places that gave me severe itchy feet! I downloaded all the comments from the post, gave each a number and then the winners were chosen completely at random using an online random number generator.

 

2014-07-24_10-15-42

The winners are: Sally Lea and Caz Lorenzo! Huge congratulations to them and I will be getting in touch via Facebook Messenger so keep an eye on your inbox. My message will contain instructions of what to do next. (Prizes must be claimed within 72 hours. If they are not then I will chose another random number.)

If you didn’t win, well look out for my next competition which will be in later in the autumn. Details will be published on my Facebook page as well as being emailed to all customers. Don’t forget there is 30% off all my landscape prints until the end of August!

Thank you very much to all those who entered, as well as your continued support and I look forward to seeing what prints are chosen by Sally and Caz.

I wasn’t sure what to expect to be honest. Photographing dogs being groomed sounded very interesting and…very wet! Add in 40 of them and well, I leave your imagination to fill in the blanks!! Aly and Sage had arranged for a dog wash at the wonderful Wag N Wash in Camberley to raise money for charity. One of Sage’s favourite vets, Fiona, passed away and this seemed like the ideal way to celebrate her life, raise some cash and have a lot of fun.

When my daughter first came home from hospital and we undertook the dreaded first bath, she looked at us with and expression of “do you have any idea what you are doing.” Much soothing and clucking noises followed. Mainly for us I think.

And that is just what this was like! Over a few hours dogs form the small (very) to the big (huge!) were washed, shampooed, clucked and fussed over. Just like children. Some dogs loved it. Some dogs were erm..backed into a corner. Just like children! It was a wonderful and uplifting thing to see and photograph

Thank you Edinburgh!

Thousands of women and men wearing brightly decorated bras were walking on sunshine, as they completed their Power Walking challenges at The MoonWalk Scotland 2014. These amazing people set off from Edinburgh’s Inverleith Park at Midnight on Saturday 7th June, pounding the streets to raise money and awareness for breast cancer charity Walk the Walk. Over half a million pounds had been raised before even one step had been taken!
