Dog photography!? Am I a dog photographer now?

Well no, I can’t say that I am but I did spend a weekend with my Dad and Ibi dabbling in dog photography. Being dog people themselves (photos will come at some point) they of course know all the dogs in the neighborhood and my dad had kindly spread the word that his son is a photographer (well, kind of I would say). That meant my plan to shoot… hmm probably better to use the word photograph… my plan to photograph their dogs grew from two to five dogs.

This was a few weeks ago now but my way too busy schedule hasn’t allowed me to start on these until now and I’m not sure how long it will take me to get through them but here are the first ones.

First out was Indy, a beautiful and very calm long-haired dachshund.

So, my first real attempt to do some dog photography turned out to be interesting and definitely a challenge. No matter if they are well-behaved and trained (well to a degree anyway) they have a mind of their own and they don’t take directions as well as (some) people. That being said, it was great fun and I met some amazingly cute dogs and I think I can see myself trying this again :)

Ok, I’ll throw some more out here once I’ve managed to go through them.
