It’s interesting how many times we’ve seen animals steal cameras: lions, penguins, chimps, eagles… A PhD student of Western Sydney University also lost her camera to an animal, and this time, the thief was a giant crab. And it’s a pretty pricey piece of gear: a $4,000 thermal camera.
I’m sure that most of us agree that each dog has its own personality. If you ask me, I love it when photographers manage to capture those animal personalities in photos. German photographer Elke Vogelsang does it, but she brings out the funny side of her four-legged models. Her dog portraits are adorable, fun, and as goofy as it gets. If they don’t put a smile on your face, I don’t know what will.
The funniest photography competition in the world, and one of my personal favorite ones, is open for entries. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has brought us plenty of giggles over the past few years. From now until late May you can be a part of it, and we bring you some previously unseen hilarious photos if you need some inspiration. Or if you just need some laughs.
Alexander Khokhlov and Veronica Ershova, have already shown us what they can do when photographing people as a team. But this time, their main subjects were dogs. The duo’s latest project The Dog Show is all about man’s best friend. Alexander and Veronica have created portraits of dogs showing their different personalities and emotions, and they’ll put a smile on your face even if you’re not much of a dog person. I guarantee!
UPS drivers drive all day long to deliver packages. On their routes, they met many people – but also their dogs. And some of these dogs are apparently so goofy, cuddly and lovable, that they’ve totally stolen drivers’ hearts. To honor the relationship with their four-legged friends they meet along the way, UPS drivers have started an Instagram page, and it will completely melt your heart.
Nature Photographer of the Year has just announced its 2019 winners. The judges selected some of the finest images that had been submitted for the contest, and they will remind you just how magical our nature is and why you need to be kind to it.
Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards never fails to put a smile on my face. The overall winner has just been announced, and although it certainly made me giggle, the winning photo also carries an important message. And I think many of you need to hear it today.
