Big dogs scare me. Little dogs not so much. This family of dogs above I shot last week. The big brother, Jethro, weighs in at about 160 LBS. The littler pup, angel, barely weighs in at 8 lbs.
A true mixed breed family. And a lot of fun to photograph.
I learned a lot on shooting dogz from Margaret Bryant, one of the best dog and pet photographers around today.
We ran a four part series called “Dogs and The Business of Pet Photography- How to start, grow and maintain a profitable portrait niche business photographing dogs.”
In it Margaret poured her heart out. There’s a lot more to creating portraits with personality than meets the eye. And I got a ways to go!
Whenever I photograph a family I insist they bring the family dog. To me, and to everyone who owns a family pet, their beloved dog IS a member of the family.
And we can create some cool portraits. IN studio or on location.
It really helps to have someone like Margaret and her years of talent and experience to help guide me along the way.

Another one of my attempts from last fall:
Yours in success in photography,
