How it works

About photographing of the kelpies

Kelpiegallery presents photos of adult Australian kelpies. The dogs are presented with pedigree names, parentage, coat colour, date of birth, country of origin and importing country, as well as a link to Kennel Meringa's Online Kelpie Database. The purpose of Kelpiegallery is to show the diversity of the dog breed. That's why I photograph all Australian kelpies, regardless of colour, hair type, pedigree or merit.

If you want your kelpie photographed – see the guidelines further down this page. Then you take a look at Kelpiegallery's facebook, about where and when I go and photograph. If you have questions about the photography itself, I recommend reading FAQ. If you are interested inviting me to your own event, please send me a mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


  • The kelpie should be of the dog breed Australian kelpie.

  • The kelpie should be registered in an FCI-recognized kennel club.

  • The kelpie should be 12 months or older.


I like to photograph as many as I can. But sometimes there is no time or opportunity to take photos of all dogs that are in the same place and time. Therefore, I have set a priority order for which dogs I would like to photograph.

  • Australian kelpies not are photographed at the Kelpiegallery.

  • Australian kelpies living far away from where I live (Halmstad, Sweden).

  • Australian kelpies in more unusual colours.

  • Australian kelpies older than younger if I get the opportunity to meet the younger ones at another time.

  • Australian kelpies already photographed in the gallery.

  • Working kelpies.

  • Australian kelpies under 1 years old.


Kelpiegallery presents photos all types of Australian kelpie. All photos are taken by the same photographer, Sofia Olsson. The purpose of Kelpiegallery is to display photos with the same type of image layout and information on each dog. The Kelpiegallery was created 2005 and is online since 2008.
