How to Save Dogs’ Lives through Photography

I had the opportunity to do a couple of shoots with dogs last week and I loved them both. Though it can be sometimes an exercise in patience when photographing pets, the rewards typically outweigh the hassles. If I get to play with a dog, I’m happy.

Even better would be to make a difference with that photography. Dallas pet photographer Teresa Berg is doing just that. After seeing too many unflattering photos on the websites of dog rescue centres, she took it upon herself to volunteer her expertise and paint the pups in a better light. The result is more adoptions and more lives saved.

Senior Dogs Across America

Nothing better than a good dog who has lived a good life. I remember my old dog Arthur in his later days wasn’t as mobile as his younger self, but he was just as loyal, caring and generally awesome. Hard to believe it’s been almost five years since he’s been gone. Still love you buddy! *sniff*

Anyway, what’s prompted that little outpouring is Nancy LeVine‘s beautiful series of photos: Senior Dogs Across America.

It’s easy to tug at the heartstrings of dog lovers with this subject matter, but Levine has done a great job to capture the dignity and still-present joy of these lovely beasts.
