Hello. I’m Alice.

From as young as I can remember I’ve been creative. Writing stories, painting & spending every moment possible either around dogs or horses.

I am a storyteller, a perfectionist, a dreamer. I strive for every photograph to connect with the viewer & trigger an emotion, to empower them to connect with something within themselves. In a world where so much is controlled, contrived & manipulated, I strive to give people real feelings, & experiences  whilst producing something simple that everybody can enjoy when displayed. 

Working with animals is all about speaking their language, and creating an environment within which they feel comfortable enough to show their true personality, in all its intricacy.  Calm, confident & thoughtful expressions are my favourite, & I thoroughly enjoy working with even the most exuberant of dogs & horses to capture this.

I see every animal as an individual, & feel it’s a huge privilege when owners allow me for a short time to see the bond & relationship they have with them.

“Wanting to provide an alternative to the well known quirky, cute pet portrait. British artist, Alice Loder began her artistic journey, exploring classic portraits of canines in 2015. Alice enjoys combining her fine art painting experience, with her photography to create images that have a surreal, painterly feel.

Fascinated by animal psychology, and their incredibly deep personalities, artist, and photographer Alice Loder specialises in creating unique fine art portraits of dogs and horses. She combines her passion for animal behaviour, human psychology and the effect that art can have on an audience to play with the idea of detachment, and constantly explores the idea of the viewer looking at the subject from an aesthetic point of view, quietly watching and appreciating the essence of these creatures and how humans have cultivated and refined them throughout history.

She successfully conveys the emotion and depth of expression that is unique to each animal, creating eye-catching and authentic images. Alice has photographed many animals over the years, but it is the constant reassuring kindness and lust for life that dogs have, that inspires her to photograph them over and over again.”
