Love (dogs), Actually

Just wanted to let you know that the Seattle Humane Society is also selling A Letter To My Dog and 100% of the proceeds go to the animals! I believe quite a few are signed by me as well. Hope you can go by there and not only buy a book, but adopt an animal!!!!!

What are you waiting for?  ;)

The image was taken 17 years ago Monday – Oct. 8, 1995. The video is me talking about behind the scenes. Seems like yesterday!

Capturing Man's Best Friend With a Camera

I have so much to share. When I come up for air, I will share all the fun and incredible work on my plate right now.

Shutterfly's Storytelling with Photo Books section feature - How to Take Pictures of Dogs with my tips for taking pictures of man's best friend.

"Think Out of the Box. What makes your pet special? Besides everything! Does it have a unique hairline? Does it have a cute pink nose? Take detail shots of what makes your pet stand out from the rest."

At the heart of the image

Nikon NPS featured my work on their home page slide show last month. Thank you, Nikon Global!
