Dogs photographed on their doorsteps during lockdown 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m Suzanne, a Family & Brand Photographer based in Sydney, Australia. 

I have embarked on this exciting project to create a beautiful, joyous coffee table book!

DOGS ON DOORSTEPS is a feel good, stylish photographic hard copy art book with meaning. A collection of beautiful dogs I photographed at their homes during the lockdown period in Sydney 2020.

image

Dogs on their Doorsteps began as a personal project launched during the 2020 ISO period in March, photographing neighbourhood dogs to retain a connection to my community and give back by providing owners with images of their beloved doggos. It started with my friends’ dogs, but quickly expanded and took on a life of its own through word of mouth.

image

Almost 70 dogs have now been photographed…COVID puppies, show champions, and old faithful pals. All sorts of beautiful breeds and rescue dogs. The process really cemented for me the significance of dogs in our families. They are our entertainers, our companions and our loyal best friends who provide 100% unconditional love. In these odd times, our dogs are our therapy. Delivering joy & companionship during long days/weeks of isolation. 

imageA bucket list item of mine is to fulfil a dream of giving back to something that has meant so much to me since I was a little girl. Dogs – and how much they mean to us. To be able to support Paws Pet Therapy who can provide that same affection and love to the vulnerable in the community is a dream come true!! Once I have covered my own costs, a percentage of the profits will lovingly be donated to PAWS PET THERAPY. 

 

PAWS PET THERAPY are a not-for-profit organisation who currently have over 120 active ‘teams’ (dogs and owners) out there every week giving love to our most vulnerable. These dogs visit people in Palliative Care, Hospitals, Mental Health facilities, Foster Care programs, and centres who care for those with disabilities. This amazing work is making a difference in so many people’s lives and is only made possible via donations. Anyone with a good tempered dog can apply and do the training! Even my crazy nut Bosley (below!)

AU$15,000 is the minimum amount to kickstart the printing process. It covers:

– Printing and packaging costs – high volume order of hard cover gorgeous coffee table books

– All out-of-pocket book production costs

– Design & production costs 

– Marketing costs

– Transaction fees

– Payment processing fees

Anything above the minimum goal (after other costs) will go towards donations to PAWS PET THERAPY.

image

My DONATION GOAL for Paws Pet Therapy is $10,000 which equates to 200 dog visits. At each visit the dogs interact with about 20 people. That’s over 4,000 smiles on faces that were otherwise sad, lonely, frightened or anxious.

This project is aimed to raise funds to provide a stunning, premium quality product. We need $15000 to go to print. All funds raised over and above $15000 will cover my costs and go towards this donation goal. So please donate if you can!

The 2020 Lockdown period has been (and still is) disastrous for many small businesses. It completely shut mine down, with all shoots having to be cancelled. This coffee table book, DOGS ON DOORSTEPS, is a chance for me to celebrate the doggos of our community, to boost my profile and provide and promote the amaing work that Paws Pet Therapy do. 

image

I would love you to help get this project off the ground. Purchase a book or two – these books will be great Christmas presents!  The book is hard cover, approx A4 in size, with almost 200 pages of beautiful dogs photographed in all sorts of houses! Beautiful on any coffee table and a unique gift with meaning.

I hope you can join me on this meaningful journey, and I hope you love the book as much as I have loved photographing it!

How much is the shipping that is refunded if you pick the book up?

    S  Suzanne Stevenson

    Hi there, yes unfortunately there is no option yet for ‘no shipping’ so if you are local (Mosman 2088) I can refund you the $13 that would will have to pay when you order the book. You may choose to donate that to Paws Pet Therapy but I am of course more than happy to refund. Thank you 🙂 Suzanne
