One photo a day challenge: Day 105. I thought I knew exactly what I was going to do for my photographs today. Our white husky, Mojo, had spent a lot of the day outside in the rain. I wanted to photograph his damp, muddy, and stinky self and talk about how much he loves the rain. But, Colton had other ideas. I called Mojo down to the bedroom so I could photograph… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 63. Something I always struggle with in my photography is the conflict between trying to photograph something new and returning to the familiar. Should I look for new things to photograph or stick with things that I love? There are so many things I love in life. I always want to photograph these familiar loves. I know what to expect and they bring me peace and… Read More
One photo a day challenge day 7. I headed down to my office tonight to perform my daily practice of one photo a day. Our dog Colton followed me to my office and laid on the floor and whined at me as I got things ready for some photography. Clearly a sign that he wanted to be my subject for today. I take a lot of photos of our dogs. This project… Read More
We recently did something that from the outside probably seemed rather rash to most people. We woke up one day with no immediate plans to get a puppy and the next day we had added a new puppy to our family. While it was sudden and unexpected it was not exactly unplanned. It was less rash from inside our little bubble than it may seem for anyone seeing our updates on social… Read More
If you told me that my adventure would begin with a 6+ hr drive each way to meet two dogs and possibly, just possibly adopt them if all went well, I would never have believed you. But that was what we did and that is how Josie came into our lives. It was one of the best days of my life. Josie fit right into our home, our heart, and our lives…. Read More
I have seen this breed of dogs a few times in the past but at this years Wine Country Circuit Dog Show at Sampson State Park I totally fell in love with these Finnish Lapphunds.
I love this series of photos of this American Staffordshire Terrier moving through the weave poles during agility competition at the Wine Country Circuit Dog Shows at Sampson State Park in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate, New York.
About two years ago my wife and I did something I never dreamt we would do. Our affinity for shelter and rescue dogs grew over the years. We volunteered at the local shelter. We fostered dogs and cats. We began adopting dogs from our local shelter and volunteering there. We enjoyed helping our local animals. We also fell deeper and deeper in love with Bernese Mountain Dogs. Then our love of shelter… Read More
There are dog lovers and there are crazy dog people. More and more I feel like we fall into the second category heavy on the crazy. When most people bring a dog into there lives it is with the thought of how how great it would be to incorporate this dog into our lives and share our life with this dog. Sometimes though that is just not how things pan out and… Read More
I love photographing dogs doing things they love. One of my favorite things to photograph dogs doing is agility. There are so many different angles and changes of direction when a dog is running an agility course that it can be difficult to follow and get good photos throughout the whole course. I am always really happy when I can capture a whole sequence of photos that show a dog moving through… Read More
