As Rod Stewart once sang- “Every picture tells a story.” The latest book by photographer Craig Holmes proves that beyond doubt. Called Dogs and their Families his pictures somehow manage to capture the inner sanctums of the animal world and animal and human relationships light up the pages.

The book will be officially launched on Thursday 4 October 2012 at The J on Noosa Drive between 6pm and 8pm.

Sadly Craig lost his beloved dog after 17 years of mateship and has recently adopted Tess from the RSPCA’s Noosa Shelter. He told the RSPCA that this was the inspiration for the book and part of the proceeds of the book will go to the RSPCA.

“We feel immensely humbled by this gesture,” said RSPCA Qld spokesman Michael Beatty. “Dogs and their Families showcases the extraordinary bond between families and their pets and highlights the joy that pets can bring, not just to their own families, but the community as a whole. The Sunshine Coast provides the postcard perfect backdrop for the photos and the RSPCA is ever grateful to the people of the coast who consistently support our local Noosa Shelter. ‘

The forward to the book is written by well known writer and broadcaster Phillip Adams who says,

 “To me dogs are the supreme beings. Not for nothing is the word dog god backwards.  They are almost invariably affectionate, loyal, intelligent, funny. They teach us so much. Mainly how to live in the moment!”

“This book is more than a collection of wonderful photos,” continued Mr Beatty. “It is a testament to the incredible talent of Craig and the poignant personalities of his subjects.”
