Jethro carried around this toy almost the entire time I photographed him back in April of 2014. He was such a fun and loving dog. I really enjoyed creating great images with him. I am currently working on a project to help bring more awareness to the amazing work the Chemung County SPCA does. The project will consist of an art exhibit, on display at the Chemung County Historical Society, featuring photographs… Read More
Bear was a fairly animated dog when I spent time with him to photograph him. He was very curious about just about everything. He spent the whole time outside exploring the large enclosure. Bear investigated all the smells. Bear spent a fair amount of time looking out of the enclosure staring at things that he found interesting. Bear also became very interested in sounds. Whenever he heard a noise he would look… Read More
Kenya seems to be the kind of dog that is ready for anything. She was not particularly energetic when I photographed her but you could tell she has the energy just ready to unleash it when the right activity is offered to her.

Stop in and say… Read More

We met our dogs Brynn and Kira at the Chemung County SPCA and they became family. You can meet your next best friend at the Chemung County SPCA too.
Titan is available for adoption at the Chemung County SPCA
Sometimes I think that “taking photographs” of the dogs is just an excuse to “go play with dogs”. Photographing the dogs can be hard work but at the same time is fun and rewarding. I do try to play with the dogs and interact with them as much as possible because it is part of my mission as a photographer to show the dogs in as natural and comfortable pose as possible….
