Karl Donvil

I have always been extremely fond of dogs, starting with a mongrel at 4 years of age, later 2 Great Danes and then, my most favorite breed, 5 racing Salukis, bred from an import Saluki from Kurdistan. Unfortunately, I no longer have dogs. My passion for photography started at 12 when I developed my first films. I started my career in the canine press working for one small Belgian Magazine. It was when "Pedigree" discovered my skills that my career got a big boost, bringing me all over Europe and South America as their principal photographer. In 2001 I started the World Dog Press Association, uniting worldwide all the professional photographers, reporters and editors and turned it into an International non-profit organization with members in every continent of the world. An achievement that I am very proud of. I also worked for the FCI for several years. Whether my reports are on small shows or on big events, I try to be sharp but constructive in order to make changes in the favor of dogs, dog shows and canine sports in general. I live in the Flemmish part of Belgium, not far from Brussels, and together with my wife I support a big animal loving family; 4 married children and 11 grandchildren, all vegetarians. I recently joined the Showsight Team and I am so proud of that. I love reading and always read English books on my Kindle in order to train myself constantly, but it will never be my mother tongue. And that's where a good team like the Showsight Team comes to help, making corrections to my work while remaining loyal to my original text.
