A couple of weeks back I was asked to to a 'dog shoot' by a friend who wanted to give the images to her other half as a surprise birthday present. Luckily for us the chap in question travels a fair amount so we planned a day when he would be away then smuggled the dogs to Grand Havre........... I would be lying if I said they were easy to capture!!!
Rosie, Harvey & Pepper were great fun, they had their own ideas of what they were going to do whether anybody liked it or not. For me that is the beauty of dog shoots, they always look their best when they are doing their own thing however you have to take one heck of a lot of shots to ensure some good ones.
The weather on the day was lovely but the light was seriously harsh, not to worry as at least it was dry. That said the dogs weren't dry given they spent half their time in the sea. All of the photos were taken with my Canon 5D MkIII with a 70-300L f4-5.6 lens.
Dogs are without a doubt my favourite subject from a 'photographic work' perspective, they don't care how they look and they don't make demands to remove 3 chins & dose of acne in Photoshop, what you see is what you get. Below are a few of my favourites from the shoot, I hope you like them;
