I'm Liz Coleman, aka madaboutgreys, an award-winning Surrey dog photographer, offering photoshoots for pets across London, Surrey and the South East. I specialise in sighthound and greyhound photography, but I love photographing dogs, horses, cats and pets of all sorts. I offer photoshoots on location or at my studio in Richmond, Surrey. My studio style is classic and timeless, creating pet portraits that you'll want to hang on your walls for years to come. Location shoots are more informal: a chance to get some great action shots or relaxed images of your pet in the best of the natural light.
People often ask me how I came to be a professional dog photographer. Animals have always been a huge part of my life. It's rumoured I spoke the name of the family dog before I managed "mummy" or "daddy". I suppose it was just a matter of time before my passion for photography and my love of animals came together. Over a decade ago, I walked into my local greyhound rescue centre at Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare, to volunteer my help. It was an afternoon that changed my life and set me on the path towards becoming a professional dog photographer, and to sharing my life with three greyhounds and two lurchers, plus various sighthounds on foster from time to time.
The current Madaboutgreys hounds are Lindy, a beautiful, gentle lurcher girl who has the wisdom of an old soul, and Polly, a loopy but lovely young saluki cross, both of whom feature in lots of my photographs. I support several local and national sighthound rescue charities through pro bono photographic work.
