As someone in a profession that is reliant on being creative and fresh, I find that I must fuel the soul with shoots that have nothing to do with my “regular clients” several times a year. This can be a tough task to stomach when I am seeking a break from my camera and yet am telling myself to use it more instead. Do these sessions take time that the studio does not have? Absolutely. Does it cost us money to create the backdrops, source the props, come up with the concept? You bet. But it also gives me an opportunity to photograph something that may be a total flop or that is out of my comfort zone.
Two people in our BBP family recently got puppies: Sarah who is assisting me this summer and all-around wonderful…and Erin Brennan of Brennan Brand who helps us with…well…branding! I invited them both in to do a creative shoot of their new additions.
I put together a little behind-the-scenes of putting together the set, what I learned about taking photos of dogs, and of course – some of the results!
