Melanie Faith Dove and Andrew Chapman – Working Dogs book



Working Dogs is a stunning photographic documentary of the Australian working dog by award-winning photographer Andrew Chapman in partnership with photo journalist Melanie Faith Dove, both of whom are MAPgroup photographers.
Ranging across the country – from mustering sheep in Tasmania’s lush pasture to the stockyards of the Western Australian wheatbelt and onto Victoria’s High Country – this magnificent book celebrates the hard-working champions of the farm and outback.

See the Smithfield, the Koolie, the Heeler, the Kelpie and the Collie at work, at play, as puppies, and in training , as seen through the eyes of two of Australia’s most brilliant photographers.

Woolsheds and Around the Sheds, Chapman’s previous photographic books about rural Australia, have sold over 50,000 copies in Australia.

Working Dogs will be available from all good booksellers or can be purchased directly from Andrew via his website here.

    Hi! I just found your book here after hearing about it on Overnights on the radio last night – 774 Vic – where it got a fantastic review!
    I am a life long dog lover and will def get myself this book for Chrissy!
