I’m Kirsty, photographer at Indago Dog Photography Derbyshire, and I live here in Derbyshire with my husband and two children. I have a working cocker spaniel, Tiegan, who is a better model than she is a gun dog and my daughter has a miniature schnauzer, Heidi.
Having just accepted a redundancy package after nearly twenty years of teaching, I am now working full time on my own business, developing websites and an online presence for small business owners, especially those in the ‘dog’ niche (breeders, trainers, kennel owners, clubs… any dog related business, club or hobby really).
I believe you can market a business much better if you really understand what it’s about and are passionate about it, and as a dog enthusiast, involved in many different activities, I understand the whole dog world pretty well and enjoy marketing it! You can find me on MarketYourDogBusiness.com
Indago Dog Photography Derbyshire came about quite recently, when I combined my passion for dogs with my enthusiasm for photographing them. I’ve been photographing dogs for a long time, doing portraits and photographing various doggy events (and emailing the photos out at request). After ‘Dogs Unleashed’ last June, some friends encouraged me to take it more seriously and start a small business and with the wholehearted support of my husband (who is eternally optimistic and planning an unlikely early retirement to the South of France) here we are!
People often ask me what ‘Indago’ means (and shouldn’t it be spelt with an ‘i’ in the middle? – no!). It’s Latin, and means ‘to track by hunting, to explore or search out.’ I like that. a) It reminds me of my spaniel and b) I’m always searching for that elusive ‘perfect picture’ – maybe of your dog?
Feel free to browse my site, look at the galleries, comment, buy if you like something enough. It’s small but it will grow and develop so please come back often and see what’s happening here. At the moment I’m working hard on a selection of new products so look out for those!
