A WINCHESTER dog photographer is celebrating success at the International Pet Photographer of the Year competition.

Diane Gollowitzer, of Dogs in Focus Photography, won three silver awards, two bronze awards and a professional standards title.

Diane said: “I specialise in high-end wall art, and I provide a highly personalised service where everything is tailored to the dog's and the owner's needs. My sessions are stress-free and a lot of fun, where the dogs are allowed to be dogs.

“My passion is training my dogs to do the most un-useful things that you can think of, such as blowing bubbles into water.

“My philosophy is that everyone deserves artwork of their dog no matter if they are trained or not, if they are allowed off lead or not, or if they are nervous, anxious or reactive.”

Diane has two dogs herself, nine-year-old Scottish Terrier, Dougal, and four-year-old Irish Terrier, Deedee. They are both trick dog champions.
