The Boys Assist Me in a Pet Photo Shoot

I'll be blunt, I really miss photographing dogs. If I miss anything during this coronavirus lockdown, aside from having income, it's getting to meet all the pets and their parents. Mostly I photograph dogs but occasionally I take portraits of cats. In any event, my two boys, Kiwi and Mango, haven't had their pictures taken for a while aside from the occasional phone photo.But in this lockdown, I thought of what I believe is a brilliant concept -- ha ha, probably just another harebrained idea. I ordered some props and built a little set for this project. And I originally hadn't conceived it for animals but then I thought, oh, that would really make it. And so I enlisted the services of my ...

Morocco and the Animals I Encountered There

Wow. Morocco. I had the most fortunate opportunity to travel to Morocco in February. Such a beautiful country, culture and cuisine! I was on a tour with 18 other people and we went to most of Morocco's greatest hits over a two-week period of time. Casablanca, Rabat, Merzouga, Erfoud, Fes, Marrakech, Essaouira... Morocco was indescribable. The scents... from the cooking to the riads, the smells were of the seven most used spices in Moroccan food to the tantalizing perfumes of amber (my favorite), verbena, orange blossom, rose, and other exotic fragrances.I can't even begin to describe what an amazing experience it was. It turns out, Morocco is the most traveled country in Africa. I suppose ...

The Boys Assist Me in a Pet Photo Shoot

I just had the most fun week where we managed to photograph I think 11 dogs over five days of shooting. It was just so great, starting at the Jesus Wall Studio on Sunday with two clients we booked for those sessions... it included a tortoise! Then we had one of our Grammy bag recipients give us a call and we created an Eeyore-inspired composite for her differently abled dog named Eeyore. You know, Eeyore floating through the air attached to a red balloon? That one. And we photographed brother Roo as well.Next we were on to a Mother's Day gift card... this one had three dogs... a Greyhound, an Italian Greyhound, and a Pomeranian. We got great images of Bentley, Shadow and Baby individually ...

My publisher, Familius, just sent out its Fall 2019 catalog and our "Dogs Vs Ice Cream" book is in it! It's real and coming to a bookstore or pet store near you soon! It's very exciting! Very colorful! Okay, I'll calm down now. You know, I have really loved this project. I've written before that it was seven ice cream socials for dogs in August and September in which we photographed 192 dogs and cones filled with Purina's Frosty Paws doggy ice cream. I used Frosty Paws original because I wanted all the ice cream to be uniform in color -- like vanilla. I've used others that have pretty colors but I just wanted them all to be one color and Frosty Paws is very easy to find. And we just used ...

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 ...
