Penel took photos of my usually ‘nervous of new people and new places’ dog Basil. Basil loved Penel instantly, made himself at home by having a drink (unheard of in a new place!) liked to sit beside her. The photos are fantastic, Penel made the process of taking the photos easy and gave clear direction to both me and basil, they are a real treasure. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Penel took some fantastic photographs of my cocker spaniel, Hurley. She did everything she could to settle him into the session and as such captured the very essence of his personality. Penel took so many wonderful shots of him it was hard to choose which ones to have. She even managed to succeed in getting me in front of the camera resulting in a fantastic image of us both. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Penel did a very special photoshoot for us some years ago of our two very different dogs — the ultimate “Irish Brace” a Lurcher and a French Bulldog. The results are very very special to us.
So of course we knew who we wanted to do it again for a special birthday present. Three dogs this time! Each one a different challenge – our elderly lurcher, Ro, who was a 2 year old when he first met Penel. And he behaved like a 2 year old again for her. Our rescue staffie behaved like a little lady for her camera. But our son’s JRT, Lola stole the show! We LOVE the results – a whole smorgasbord of precious images.

We had a photo shoot for our 3 lurchers and little crossbreed just over a year ago. We travelled from South Wales to Surrey because Penel’s such a good photographer and I trusted her to be patient with us and our dogs, which she was and as a result we ended up with some spectacular photos one of which reduced me to tears as it was sooo perfect.
Can’t recommend Penelope Malby highly enough!

Not only is Penel a brilliant photographer, she has extensive knowledge of animal behaviour which enables her to conduct shoots with the animal’s welfare being the priority. Penel was patient, understanding and friendly and didn’t put any pressure on my dog to ‘perform’. I would (and have!) recommended her to all of my animal owning friends 🙂 Fabulous photos from a fabulous animal professional. Thank you! Xx

Penel created a great relaxed atmosphere which meant that Tesco (Spangley Bungalow) didn’t mind being photographed at all and thought it was all immense fun. What a nice day out. I would thoroughly recommend. And located right next door to a fantastic place to walking, off lead bouncing, pub and grub (dog friendly) couldn’t have been better. Thanks Penel. And you should see the photos!!! Fab

Penel did a photo shoot with my dog, Oscar and my daughter, Charlotte. Oscar was extremely nervous, but Penel was absolutely brilliant with him. She was so patient with him, and soon gained his trust. This in turn, resulted in a relaxed doggie and some beautiful photos of both him and my daughter too, which we will always treasure.

We spent a fabulous morning with Penel photographing our 4 Spinoni. Stunning photographs & captured the unique personality of each one of them. Photos to treasure always!

Penel has taken many, many wonderful photos for me over the years – not only of my dogs but of my dog friendly holiday cottages, horses and sheep. She’s very versatile, professional but relaxed, particularly with the dogs, getting the best out of whatever subject she is focussing (pun intended!!) on. Love seeing her studio images of other people’s dogs – it is so obvious that they are happy and relaxed.
