This is Benji, a 15 month old miniature Yorkshire Terrier...............and boy can he move quickly!
This dog belongs to my mums friend and she thought it would be good to get some shots of Benji showing his full character. Benji had never been off the lead before so when he was finally released he was like a hound possessed!!! Personally I love doing dog shoots, they are natural performers and providing you get down to their level the results are normally good. As you can see, Benji is so small that getting down to his level meant that I had to be flat on the floor, combine this with him charging around at great speed then this made for a very challenging shoot.
Whilst enjoyable this was certainly the hardest dog shoot I have had to do for all the reasons mentioned above. Big thanks to Canon for allowing me the facility to take 6 frames per second on my camera, this combined with a very fast lens ensured that I could nail a few decent shots. Below are some of my favourites from the day, I hope you like them.
