Ex-Farrier Steve Jefford is a specialist in canine photography, having firmly

established himself as a popular photographer on the dog showing scene and with DOG WORLD readers.


Steve shares his home with his wife Sharon and his daughter Stephanie & the family’s seven dogs and his daughter Steph enjoys

showing their Pointers and Wire Fox Terriers.

Steve has attended, photographed and even judged horse shows for over 28 years,

but it was a broken wrist which brought about a break of another kind. Steve

initially attended canine championship shows with his ever-present trade stand

but, thanks to his reputation in equestrian photography, which included the big

international dressage shows at Goodwood, he was approached to take photographs of dog shows in the early ‘90s.


As DOG WORLD prides itself on using passionate and professional photographers,

it was a natural progression for Steve to start working for the newspaper in July

2002. He continues to attend shows most weekends, soaking up the atmosphere and variety of each event.


Self-taught, Steve has learnt through trial and error what works best for exhibitors

and their dogs, putting them at ease and making the process enjoyable.

Steve takes his state-of-the-art mobile studio to shows so, whatever the weather,

he still captures the best photographs of exhibitors. An extensive range of pictures

is put on his website www.k9photos.co.uk so customers can choose and order

their prints from the comfort of their own homes. Designed by Steve himself, the

website is user-friendly, easy to navigate and contains a helpful FAQ section.

Living in the beautiful Arundel area of West Sussex, Steve covers a large area

including Hampshire, Bedford, Luton and Norfolk, as well as Discover Dogs and

Crufts. He is happy to travel and regularly attends kennels for on-location shoots.
