River Wilson first started practising photography as a child, on her pet puppy, Meeko. She’s now an accomplished, passionate Pet Photographer and Dog Behaviourist, dedicated to capturing the unique personality and essence of animals.
Achieving a degree in wildlife media prompted her to focus on pets specifically. Now with 10 years of experience as a pet photographer, River has established a reputation for delivering stunning and heartwarming photographs that truly showcase the personality and bond between pets and their owners.
Known for their exceptional ability to connect with animals on a deep level, River possesses an innate understanding of their behaviour, especially dog behaviour, enabling them to create a comfortable and relaxed environment during every photoshoot. By putting both pets and owners at ease, and using fun training games to mentally stimulate pets, River ensures that each session is an enjoyable and memorable experience for all involved.
In her free time, River promotes correct animal care and rights and actively helps rescue both wild and domesticated animals.
Supporting rescues is important to River and helps by doing free shoots for animals looking for their forever homes.
