Alex Cearns is one of Australia’s most awarded pet and wildlife photographers. Her Houndstooth Studio is a leader in the market of animal portrait photography. Her natural animal handling skills, remarkable images and contribution to lives of rescued animals has earned her high regard across Australia’s animal lovers. With over 50 awards to her name since 2008 (including a nomination for the 2014 Australian of the Year) she has worked tirelessly to capture and showcase the essential joy that people find in animals.
Ever since I wrote and published my article on The Best Dog Photographers That Help Support a Cause: Help Us Give Back I was hoping to get an interview with her. I approached Alex with an interview and she graciously accepted. We hit it off immediately!
Alex is also the author and photographer for two books published by Penguin Books Australia: Mother Knows Best – Life Lessons from the Animal World and Joy, A Celebration of the Animal Kingdom. Several additional books are in the planning stage.
