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.
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.
Perhaps you remember the viral “Under-Cats” project by Lithuanian photographer Andrius Burba. After publishing this series of photos and the accompanying book, Andrius and his team went on working on several similar projects, but with different animals. And if you are a dog person, you’re gonna love this one.
Andrius’ latest project, “Under-Dogs,” shows dogs photographed from underneath. Just like his previous projects, the photos are well made, funny and they want to make you hug your dog (or any dog, actually) and rub its fluffy belly. We spoke to Andrius about the photos, the gear he used and the challenges he encountered. And he also answered to a burning question – who is better at posing, cats or dogs?
The Incredible Dog Challenge is said to be the premier dog agility event in the US, and this year’s promo video is every bit as awesome as the dogs it features.
Luckily for us, Devin also made a great behind-the-scenes video showing how he captured dogs jumping over 20 feet into a swimming pool and slaloming at crazy speeds.
They always say, shoot what you love and it will come through in your photography. Looking through the images from Andrew Fladeboe’s portfolio, one would be hard pressed to prove otherwise. The United States based photographer has been travelling the world photographing working dogs for several years. The project has brought Fladeboe to the Netherlands, Scotland, Southern France, and Norway. In 2014, he was the recipient of the Fulbright grant which allowed the photographer to add New Zealand to his list of locations.[Read More…]
For many dog owners, the beloved companions are more than just a pet–they are a best friend, an equal part of the family. Ben Moon, a travelling surfer and photographer, documents that very connection in this incredibly touching video memoir to Denali–Moon’s dog who recently passed away after gifting the photographer a life of loving memories.
The beautifully crafted tribute to Denali features breathtaking cinematography, inspiring photography, and a narrative so moving you’ll probably notice your eyes swelling with tears before the video’s midpoint. At the very least, you’ll find yourself with an uncontrollable urge to play and snuggle up next to your own pup. [Read More…]
Photographer Traer Scott, probably best known for her work with animals, has an impressive resume. In addition to authoring five books, her work has been featured in numerous magazines, including National Geographic, Vogue, People, Life, and others; she has been the recipient of the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts Photography Fellowship Grant and the Helen Woodward Humane Award for animal welfare activism; and has appeared as a guest on Fox and NPR, among others.
Her portrait series “Shelter Dogs,” which was turned into a book of the same title, is a beautiful and stunning collection of work that focuses, literally, on canines living in a local pound, almost anthropomorphizing them in hopes of increasing adoptions. Traer provides some insight into the project as well as some unique advice for aspiring photographers.
Dogs can be very expressive when it comes to displaying what they’re really feeling. Just ask anyone who has spent any time around an under the weather pup who has had the inconvenience of wearing an Elizabethan collar–also frequently referred to as one of those ridiculous looking plastic cones designed to keep your pet from licking it’s wounds or scratching it’s ears. Judging by the looks on some of these poor dog’s faces, they probably feel every bit every bit as embarrassed and peeved about having to wear one as we think they would.
In Timeout, the latest photo series from Ty Foster, the talented animal photographer looks to give these dogs an audience–letting us humans know exactly how much the “cone of shame” has become the bane of existence to canines everywhere. Some win our hearts with a sad, pathetic, or downright goofy look, while other dogs come at you with a you’ve-got-to-be-kidding me kind of expression. And, much to the dismay of the all subject’s, it’s hard not be entertained by their misfortune…[Read More…]
