Irish Wolfhounds
I just love taking pictures of Irish Wolfhounds! I never tire of these glorious creatures.

Since I got my first digital camera I have been taking one with me to IW events and to visit other IWs, especially puppies. I organize most of my pix into chronological slideshows to remember the sights I saw and try to give the viewer a feeling for the experience, whether it was watching a show, a lure coursing event, or a litter of pups playing. Occasionally I have taken semi-official stacked pictures of pups, and display those such that I can compare the pups to each other.

A quick note about the puppy pix in this section of the website. They are not my puppies, and I am not helping to sell anyone else's puppies. I just like to take pictures of them!

Handsome Hound
There may be a few pictures of my hounds scattered throughout this collection, but most of these pix are of other people's hounds. Often I knew the hound or owner, but sometimes I was just recording an event or a dog I found particularly interesting. If you see a picture that has you or your hound in it and you would like a copy, you may download it. I ask only that you credit me as the photographer. Also note I may also have a larger version of the picture stored somewhere, so if you want to print the picture with actual photo quality you should contact me to see if I have a printable version of the image. For the most part I try to keep the pictures I post on the web on the small side.

I am going to upload some of my more recent pix first and then add older ones and new ones as I get time.
