After our five years worth of dogs-eating-ice cream, we've started thinking about dogs-eating-pizza photo shoot since last year but wanted to get "Dogs Vs. Ice Cream" out into the world first. Our launch date for the book was August 1 and we spent some time at signings. And then... we needed something new and fun to do and the pizza idea came to fruition.
I amassed the props... brick backdrop (I had to think really long and hard about what kind of background our fake pizzeria would have), a table with a red checkered tablecloth, a few different heights of seating so all sizes of dogs would be comfortable, and the typical pizza props... cheese and red pepper flake shakers, oregano, and a straw chianti bottle with candle wax dripping over the side. And all sizes of pizza pans.
So we put together our set at Kriser's, ordered a couple of pizzas, and photographed a handful of dogs. And yes, it was real pizza. We only want dogs whose owners allow them to eat a slice as a treat once in a while.
Here are the results of our pet photography photo shoot -- dogs eating pizza.
And while the Studio City shoot sold out in less than 24 hours, your dogs will still be able to get their pizza party on in a couple of more shoots we've got planned! If you're not on the mailing list, get on it so we can let you know the details. We'll also be posting on our Facebook page and Instagram.
