I’ve been working with Mayhew for several years now, as a pet charity photographer and a volunteer. I started working with them by volunteering as a foster carer for their cat and dog residents. They are a fab animal charity based in North West London close to where I used to live. Even though I now live in Sheffield I’m very happy to keep working for them. I’m also a huge fan of the comedian Alan Carr, so I was delighted when the team at Mayhew asked me to photograph Alan’s visit to the home in December 2019.

Alan was visiting the home to film a special piece of content which was unveiled on Christmas Day in 2019. He was meeting the doggy residents and delivering donated dog toy gifts to each pooch.

I love seeing how the charity has grown and expanded their reach over the years. 2019 was a brilliant year for the as HRH The Duchess of Sussex was announced as their patron. The year ended on a high note too, with the fabulous chatty man paying them a Christmas visit to give present to their resident dogs. Here are just a few of the snaps from the occasion.
