My name is Saskia and I'm 20;

Caught in a moment

Well as you can tell from my photostream I love animals, particularly my own <3 Been really into photography for a while now and got my first DSLR in Sep 08'. Still learning alot but have also learnt alot being on flickr for a few months. I'm a pretty shy person and photography is my outlet for alot of stuff so whenever I can I get my camera out. I plan on started my own pet photography business later in 2010.

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog."

Shandi is my Labrador/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who turns 4 in October 2010. She is often mistaken for a Rottie because of her markings. She is the goofiest girl ever, always acting like a puppy and trying to play with the cat. For more information go here;

Banjo is my Australian Cattle Dog mix who I just adopted yesterday (September 24th) at the age of 7 weeks. Yet again another breed that gets mistaken for something else. Almost everyone thinks he has Jack Russell in him just because of his markings. He's warming up to Shandi and is enjoying playing with her now. He's a little rascal, loves digging and chewing up things. You can read more about him here;

    "You are just amazing and I love you! You're my best friend and have given so much to me. I remember when I first got my "big camera" (that I still know nothing about LOL) and you wanted to get one too. Your photography has just grown and grown. I can't wait to see what it will look like in a few months... years... decades. You're always striving to improve. Keep going and I'll always be there!
    xoxo,

    PS,
    I also can't wait to be friends with a world-famous photographer! LMFAO"

    OhYouDog Photography says:

    "There is a simple but beautiful quality to Saskia's photos that is hard to match. Her pet portraits are at a level I strive to meet, and the self portraits are filled with a raw emotion that is so hard to capture. I love looking at her stream and am always excited for the next installment."

    "Saskia takes wonderful photos. She has an especially sensitive eye for animals. If you like seeing adorable and beautiful animal photos, be sure to follow Saskia's work. You can't help but fall in love with Shandi and Banjo (and Zara, when she makes an appearance). :)"

    "I'm very jealous of Saskia's ability to capture the bond between dog and owner! Her work is always beautifully edited and framed. The emotion that comes through in every shot really shows her deep love for dogs (and the occasional cat too)!

    Big hugs for Banjo and Shandi!"

    "I love Shandi's photos, they just make my day! Shandi is one adorable girl, she makes the perfect model. From her photos, you can see how goofy she can be, just like my own dog, Chuppy! They both can relate to eachother, lol. You deserve this lil testimonial Saskia, thank you for those wonderful pictures of Shandi, they are hilarious and stunning! Your one true amazing photographer and I hope to learn more from you and catch up to you! (:
