Audrey Bellot, professionnal photographer
I am 25 and I am a dog photographer. I had the chance to grow up with them since my childhood. It is thus this sensitivity and this attachment to the animals which were born in first, then came my passion for the Art, while starting with the drawing, then the photography. Animals and nature form an exceptional harmony, the possibilities of creation are endless. I aspire to retranscribe as much as possible the personality of the dog in my photos, while taking the time to understand him. I am inspired by the people and their dogs that I meet, their history, their complicity, their moments. I live in Auvergne in France, and I realize photo sessions to offer poetic memories to the owners of dogs of the whole world. No matter its origins, its character or its age, it is with a particular attention that I will realize the most beautiful portraits of your precious companion in breathtaking sceneries.
My dog Laos
This is Laos, my very first dog. He came into my life in 2018, the same time I opened my photography business. He’s a Border Collie that I adopted from a shelter, and I couldn’t have asked for a better first dog! He’s a very calm dog, close to people (if you’ve ever met him, you’ve probably gotten a kiss from him) and extremely friendly.
Laos is the name he got when he arrived at the shelter which I left unchanged, as it reminds me of one of the things I love most about photography: traveling. Maybe one day we will go there? Whatever, Laos travels with me all the time, he is my shadow in a way. I love the feeling of happiness he transmits to the people he meets, he always has the little mimicry of giving his paw to the people he wants the attention of. It’s his thing!
