When I was contacted to photograph these couple of pooches, I was given breed names I had to research - you know - just in case I’d missed the latest inventions.
Lambert Sidhwani aka Puff Ball was around 13 years old when I first met him. He’s the quiet one, an introvert who appreciates solitude. However he takes the lead on walks! He doesn't get Banjo's toys.
Banjo Cibej aka Scruff Face, was also possibly around 13 years old when I met him. He’s the active sort: a bit bossy, likes to show he’s superior - usually by following close behind Lambert and peeing on everything Lambert does. He loves his toys - especially the squeaky sort.
We hooked up one morning for a shoot around the streets of Darlinghurst and Rushcutters Bay. I soon discovered that despite their senior years, these two are pretty much puppies in their own way - and very cheeky too in the way that they’d look anywhere but at the camera (ah the required patience of a pet photographer!). They say never work with children and animals. But these two secretly stole my heart. Come see their story.
I can't wait to see Lambert & Banjo's wall art!
