Congratulations to David Tombs Photography who has achieved his second winning entry in the SuperDog of the Month competition!
David’s entry of Milly was very popular with both of our Dog Owner and Sponsor judging panels, which means Milly’s owner can look forward to receiving a winner’s certificate, plus a £25 Pets at Home voucher. Milly’s image will also be entered into SuperDog of the Year when they could win £1000 in the annual competition!
David started taking professional photographs over twenty years ago whilst serving in the Army. Having enjoyed much success, he moved into full-time photography in 2012, with his own bespoke studio in the heart of Suffolk. David says, “Being a full-time photographer allows me to give the service and attention to customers that they deserve, and having my own studio means I have the environment and time to develop and hone my skills to ensure that I produce beautiful photographs for everyone I work with.”
“Thanks to SuperDog of the Month for this award, much work went into this image but all worth it. Thank you also to this majestic dog, a pleasure to work with. I feel that it is so important for a professional photographer to have ones work judged by a qualified panel, keeps me on my toes.”
In 2014 David gained official recognition from the Master Photographers Association (MPA) by being awarded his Licentiate qualification in Portrait and Wedding photography. He went on to follow this with a Merit award from the MPA in 2016 for his “Life Time” photography.
David says “Click with the person before you click with the shutter” which summarises his overall approach, enabling him to achieve relaxed images of clients and capture moments that no one else has managed to. He goes on to say, “my work is my passion, I love what I do. Interacting with people, sometimes pets gives me a warm feeling, and most of all seeing the expression on my client’s faces when they see their images. I get a huge buzz from making people happy”.
“Just picked up my photos from David and am over the moon with them – made me very emotional. We had a pet photoshoot and David is very patient and really knows his stuff. Would highly recommend him.”
