It's a Wrap for the Ice Cream Social for Dogs, 2018

Excuse me while I pick myself off the floor... okay, ready. We photographed 192 dogs over seven Ice Cream Socials for Dogs in August and September. We did it. Yes, it was the most fun you can have with a frozen treat. And it was also exhausting but oh lordy, I got to laugh and meet great people with great dogs. I mean, come on, dogs eating ice cream? It was the best.You know I photographed these for a book, right? And in the next 15 days I get to sort through all of these images and figure out which ones to submit to the publisher. For reals, this is going to be a tough one. There are certain categories the doggies tend to fall in... the chompers, the delicate lickers, the I-can't-believe-I ...

It's a Wrap for the Ice Cream Social for Dogs, 2018

Anyone who has been around these pages for a while knows -- or probably knows me from -- my Ice Cream Social for Dogs. Well, it's back on at four locations over the summer!But if you've done one before, why would you want to do one again? Because I just signed a book contract for a book on Dogs Eating Ice Cream! That's right, a book! And your dog may get to be in it, if I have any say (I'm pretty sure I have some say!) And if you've never done one before, you and your dog are in for a real treat.The Ice Cream Social for Dogs is only $29, which includes an 8x10 print and its digital files and of course, the doggy ice cream and the shoot itself. I'll have other options to purchase for on the ...

It's a Wrap for the Ice Cream Social for Dogs, 2018

I already wrote about how I'm currently away from my worldwide headquarters because of a house remodel. I'm staying at a residential hotel in Woodland Hills, which is about 10 miles from my home. We've been exploring the neighborhood and my partner found Serrania Park just a short five minute drive away from us. It has a huge area where dogs are free to catch balls and flying discs. It also has hiking trails and a paved path around the perimeter, which I've been walking in the morning.Just as I enter the park, there is a small grassy hill and I've been thinking it's a great place to photograph a dog. So I thought maybe the park would be good for sunset shots. It turns out the area where the ...

How to Find a Pet Photographer

It's a Wrap for the Ice Cream Social for Dogs, 2018

Right off the bat, this is going to sound self-serving. I'll stipulate to that. But it is something that is weighing on my mind and I wanted to offer my advice and maybe it's something for you to consider.The question is, how do you choose a pet photographer that's right for you?I think the first thing people take into consideration is price. Pet photographers are all over the spectrum when it comes to what they charge for a session and products. There are super inexpensive pet photographers and those that make you gasp and a range in between.In general, the less expensive photographers have less experience or they have a day job that subsidizes their photography and they are pretty happy ...

A Magnificent Trio

It's a Wrap for the Ice Cream Social for Dogs, 2018

I got the inquiry from my potential client about photographing her and her husband's sweet puppy before she gets too much older. A black and white Cocker Spaniel mix. And at some point in the future, she'd probably want to have the two cats photographed as well. (Sound of record screeching!) Wait, we can do the cats at the same time! It will save you money! And thus began the shoot of Piper, the puppy, and the two cats, Monkey and Cooper.And how we did it? Remember the new backdrops and the Vanity Fair style shoot? Yep, that's exactly what we did with the industrial stool.Now Monkey came with a warning. Maybe a little too shy. He was hanging out in the "catio" when I arrived. So we ...
