Dogs are children of nature, and as such they look best when highlighted by natural light. When taking photos of dogs, I never use artificial lighting. Sunshine or overcast, nobody can replicate the complexity of Mother Nature's spectrum. Shooting in natural lighting is an important part of my photo style.
Without understanding canine structure, even the most talented photographer will fail to deliver good results. As a dog person through and through, my strength is knowing how to position the dog, how to angle the camera, and when to click the trigger to make them look as close to the breed standard as possible.
Instead of attempting to hide faults, I focus on highlighting the virtues of each of my subjects. My objective it to make them look their absolute best by calling attention to their star quality traits while allowing their faults to disappear into background. I allow their best qualities to speak for themselves and make the dog shine!

Groups of related dogs, whether by bloodline or household, often with breeder, owner, and/or handler in the photo. Perfect for ads and online display, Christmas cards, and just a wonderful keepsake.
Stacked photos and heads for every puppy in the litter, as well as a group shot. Absolutely invaluable for advertising your puppies online and in print, finding show homes, and for recording your breed improvement efforts.
