Jan Evans is a sports and countryside events photographer, mostly photographing the dogs in action, the tests and international competitions at Game Fairs, and field trials in both Ireland and the U.K..
Jan was the official photographer for the 2017 European Championship of Irish Red Setters on Snipe, and the official photographer for the 2017 IKC Retriever Championship. She photographed the 2018 U.K. Cocker Spaniel Championship and the Skinner’s 2018 World Cup for Retrievers. Her dog action images have appeared in The Field, Sporting Shooter, Irish Country Sports and Country Life, and several other publications, both in Ireland and the U.K.
Originally from rural California, Jan now lives in Co. Kilkenny, Southeast Ireland, the unusual trading name Polarstar is an homage of sorts to her home place in California, where she spent her childhood fishing endlessly for rainbow trout in the Polarstar Creek with her Irish Red Setter, Chief, by her side.
