My name is Elizabeth Eldridge and I have been a photographer by trade since 1983. Back then I was Beth Tobias, Pet Pic's Photography, then just Tobias Studio of Photography. I earned my Professional Photographers of America's prestigious Master of Photography Degree in the late 1990's. Like many other photographers though, I picked up my first camera as a little girl and enjoy capturing the beauty and sometimes the tragedy of life to remember for all of time. I was born a wild child in Ohio, always outside appreciating nature and capturing critters any way I could. Since then I have had hundreds of animals come and go in my life who taught me so much. I've always had the strongest passion for wolves, dogs, and horses.
I have showed and trained dogs and horses for many years. I was also a horseback riding instructor for several years and led 4-H groups. I strongly believe to capture the essence of any subject, you must truly understand and anticipate it's behavior the best you can.
Knowledge truly gives a photographer the edge along with natural talent, learned skills, sharing with peers, and of course, some good old fashioned luck.
I hope you enjoy viewing my passion and I also hope some of the images stir something inside of you. I give all the glory to my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ. After all, everything we see around us proves 'The earth is filled with His Glory!'
Thank you and God bless!
