Jaydene Chapman StudioDarwin, Northern Territory, Australia
Hello all, I’m a Kiwi living and loving the tropics of the topend Australia. I was a former crocodile photographer turned into fulltime pet photographer. It’s no secret that I’m a cat lover but dogs are my favourite creatures to photograph because of their soulful stares and unrivalled enthusiasm in front of the camera. I have photographed so many beautiful creatures from snakes, lizards, birds, wallabies, quokkas to echidnas. It’s never a dull moment when you photograph animals. Almost all pet owners jump in for some special shots with beloved animals. I started as a children’s and family studio portrait photographer in Auckland New Zealand 25 years ago at the age of 19 and haven’t put down the camera since. Photography is not only my job it’s my life’s passion.
