My name is Amanda and I live with my dog Rusty & flock of bantams in the village of Boxted Essex, near Colchester. I am surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Dedham Vale and spend as much time as possible outdoors. I am very fortunate to live close to the border of Suffolk/Essex and divide my spare time between them both – so my Pet Photography business naturally covers these two counties.

The market town of Sudbury is my second home, with its glorious expanse of water meadows just a stone’s throw from the bustle of shops and traffic. It’s such a fantastic place for dogs (and people) to have fun – so we spend lots of our free time there !

Rusty, a Fox Red Labrador Retriever, came to live with me in February 2014.

How can I describe him ? He is loving, obedient, handsome and very funny – and the centre of my World … Everyone who meets him falls in love with his wonderful personality. He can certainly be a ‘rascal’ when he wants to be and so I chose this as my business name – to celebrate the fun-loving, cheeky side to a pet’s nature which we all find find endearing.

Rusty has turned my love of Pet Photography into a passion – as I have tried to capture every possible expression and mood – whether it be ‘goofy’, cute or ‘dashingly’ handsome – building up a huge catalogue of images of my Best Friend. These give me a great deal of pleasure and bring back wonderful memories of all our holidays and adventures together – as the very essence of ‘Rusty’ is captured forever …

I can’t wait to meet you and your best friend to create some more fantastic memories !
