Meet Katrina Wilson...

“I grew up on a smallholding, where my parents ran a boarding kennels and cattery business. My Mum has bred, shown and judged dogs for more than 40 years, and so I have always been surrounded by animals!

At the age of 16, I pleaded with my parents to let me keep a 12 week old border collie that had been tied up in a field near our house. Penny became my very own pet, and much loved companion for many years.

I have enjoyed special relationships with many more pets that I have owned over the years – some of them are featured here on my website.  Each one has left me with a special memory of their time with me.

Currently we have two Border Collies; Bobby, a lively red and white boy – still very much a teenager at 4 years old! – and Sammy, an equally lively tri-coloured Border Colour who we rehomed last year from a shelter. Our house is also home to six cats – five of whom are rescues, as a result of my failed attempt at fostering! It seemed natural that my passion for both photography and animals should come together, so that I can provide other pet owners with lasting memories of their treasured companions.

I am proud to have won awards for my work from the Guild of Photographers, as well as various trophies presented by my Camera Club. I regularly get my work published in magazines and featured in social media, and undergo constant mentoring and learning of new techniques in both photography and editing to improve my skill set.”
