RSPCA Dog Show – Sunday 24th July 2011

At Jenkin’s Photography we don’t do JUST weddings, we cover a whole range of photography but one of our favourite annual events is the RSPCA Llys Nini Dog Show in Penllegaer!

We spent the day walking around the show, taking snaps of the dogs (and their owners).   Not the usual dog portraits that we do but it has its advantages as all the dogs were on leads – but on the other hand the show had plenty of distractions which made it all the more interesting!

For every photo we printed on the day (and afterwards on our website) we donated 10% back to the charity.  Many dog owners proudly went away with the photos of their dogs as we were able to print out on the day as we took our full equipped Event trailer along and of course our trusted wireless chip and pin machine!  We’d be lost without it!


One character that brightens up any event is local boy & radio presenter, Kev Johns!  And what a hero he is…. he managed to pack 3 charity events into the day!  Starting off with the Race for Life, then the Dog Show followed by another charity event at TwoCann Cafe in SA1!  The last time we’d spoken with Kev was on the bus at the Swans Promotion Parade!

The dog show raised over £5k on the day – the most they’ve raised at the Dog Show!  And is seems to be getting bigger each year and no wonder as it is a great day out for the family.

This week at Jenkins Photography Swansea…

After a lovely 4 day break last week, we got straight back into the swing of things!

Before we could even say ‘cheese’ we were back at the Marriott Hotel, Swansea photographing the Macmillan event!  Quite an interesting one as their theme was Cowboys and Indians!

Followed by a wedding at Norton House, Mumbles and the RSPCA Dog Show on Sunday.  We love doing the dog show every year as it’s always fun – especially when Kev Johns is hosting it!  Sally did a great job organising the event too!

The fun just doesn’t stop at Jenkins Photography as this evening we have been doing a pre-wedding shoot for a wedding taking place this coming Saturday in Penderyn!  (Yes, the place where they make the Whiskey!)    It was a new venue for us, which is always interesting and another location to add to the hundreds we’ve already done!

And Sunday will see us photographing Nicola and Chris pre-wedding shoot ready for their August  wedding in Scotland!  A trip we just couldn’t say no to!

We’re hoping that you’re enjoying the blogs about the weddings we’ve been doing? We’ll be mixing it up with some other photography we do from next week!

And a final note – we’ve been taking bookings for Christmas this week!!  Yes, its just around the corner!
