American Bulldog in Prospect Park

American Bulldog in Prospect Park

It was so hot and humid that evening in Prospect Park that I couldn’t get photos of this beauty with his mouth closed. What you can’t see is that I felt the same way. I hope to get to work with him on another shoot in cooler weather.

I made these portraits in Prospect Park for a couple and their seven-month-old golden retriever puppy. They’ll use one on their holiday greeting card.

Family Portrait with Pet

130404_1083_barnett

A rider in Braking AIDS Ride, which I photograph each September, hired me to make family portraits of his cousin and his cousin’s partner as a gift to the couple. I think a portrait session is a great gift idea! I knew the portrait would include their dog, but we had to have a discussion about whether the session would be in a natural environment or the studio. They chose the studio. The humans behaved well. Working with the dog could have been frustrating, but I actually had a lot of fun. She was rather old and losing her sight and hearing. She often wandered off the set and didn’t hear us calling her back, so we had to run after her, scoop her up, and return with her. Since she couldn’t see well, as she wandered she sometimes ran into light stands but kept going, moving the lights across the floor. Our laughter made for great smiles in the photos.
