Portrait No 6 – Leonora, dog walker & carer

Leonora is the first person to be included in the project that I actually knew before they volunteered and she positively radiates passion and enthusiasm for her hobby turned business. In fact in Leonora’s case she has combined two passions, her love of dogs and love of outdoors/walking, to form two business, a dog walking/ dog sitting service and a business supplying premium pet food.


 I met Leonora on a foggy day on one of her dog walks and even the weather didn’t dampen her enthusiasm for her business, she describes herself as hating her previous employment and counting down the days until weekend came around again so that she could be out walking with her own dogs. Now every day feels like a weekend.

I really enjoyed the opportunity to get out and shoot portraits in the fog ! Its not something that usually happens and the fog made a wonderfully atmospheric backdrop that just had to be in black and white.


Leonora’s dog walking business is Go Walkies Bolton, the website is and she is also on Facebook. Her pet food business is Turton Vale Premium Pet Food and that can also be found on Facebook.
