Frequently Asked Question

Never fear, many of the dogs I’ve had the pleasure to photograph fit in this category. It's just dogs being dogs. In response to this I’ve developed a few tricks to garner attention. It takes extra patience and time along with some rewards. Not to mention, my goal is to capture them being them, acting like a dog. Its not a formal studio shoot, we get a little crazy. Regardless of the situation, I am still able to capture amazing shots of your furry ones. Don’t let your dogs wild side discourage you from letting me capture them. I love a challenge!
You’ll see on my site that most all of the dogs appear to be off leash. While some well mannered and trusted dogs were, a good majority of the unpredictable ones were not. In this wonderful digital age of photoshop, I am able to meticulously remove the leash lines from the shots as if they were never there. Photoshop Magic, ooooh! I’ll never put your dog or anyone else's in danger, if your pup can’t be trusted or doesn’t behave well around others. I usually use a variety of leashes, short and long leads depending on if we want them to have have the freedom of running around while under control or if we want to contain them in a designated spot. Some cooperation on the owner’s part helps with the corralling.
