I’ve been spending a lot of time with dogs recently. M’i old pal Charlie Smith, runs a canine care business www.charliescaninecare.co.uk which includes dog walking, behavior, day care and a house sitting service, so owners don’t have to leave their dogs at a kennel when they are away from home. Not really having much experience as a dog photographer, I thought I’d use the opportunity to try capture the girls characters, once I’d sussed them out while house sitting with Charlie over Christmas and New Year.
As a gesture to her clients, I thought it would be nice to leave the owners with a printed portrait of each dog. Poppy, nosing through the cat flap, is a Collie and Labrador mix, while Tedi, the hungry corner hugger, is a Cock-a-Poodle.
An old known phrase goes, that when it comes to photography, never to work with kids or animals. I’ve got to admit, I really enjoy the challenge of capturing a dogs character and expressions.
Feel free to get in touch if you want your dog photographed at the studio or on location.
