Forgotten Keepers

Every now and then I go through and purge “junk” images from my archives, and as I’m deleting the throw-away images, I always discover forgotten keepers like these shots of Suki. The one up top has some weird flare in the frame, but I love Suki’s expression. Taken with my now retired Nikon D300s and […]

A Shiba’s Life

Life is pretty good for this Shiba Inu. The day begins on whatever soft surface she decides to sleep on through the night. “Please don’t bug me with that camera.” Next is usually some dog-centric outing, like a run along the beach: In return, she has to tolerate her photo-geek dad chasing her around with […]

Suki…Unleashed!

Fuji X100 | 1/200 sec, f/2.8, ISO 200 Such a historic day for Suki, and as you can see, she’s quite happy about it. Today we granted her the most off-leash freedom she has ever had.

Three Shiba Stars

For me there is nothing more fun to do photographically than take pictures of a Shiba. What about taking pictures of three Shibas? Now that’s what I call an awesome afternoon. This here is the mighty Taro. Just look at his confident gaze and large stature. The Taro executive shot. Feel the power of the […]

More Dog Park Antics

Packing up and getting ready to head out alone on a photo walk, I turn around as I open the front door to see Suki giving me the “I’m going too, right?” look. Agh, she gets me every time! Ok Suki, let’s go… People often ask me how I get Suki to cooperate when I […]
