If Suki was as big as she thinks she is, she’d probably look just like Champi, the most adorable Akita ever! We finally had a chance to meet this giant puppy over the weekend. The best way I can think to describe Champi is, well….she’s like a massive Shiba. She looks like what would happen […]Read More Champi the Akita
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 […]Read More More Dog Park Antics

She included so many specific details that […]Read More Team Suki

The test shot I took of her above gives […]Read More Does Flash Have to Look Like…Flash?
Some people who only know Suki from her photos tend to think that she’s a larger dog. I’ll admit that I try to use angles and perspectives that make her appear larger than she is, but Shiba Inus are definitely small dogs. Not lap dog small, but not big either. I say they’re perfectly sized! […]Read More Suki and Me… [and video on the D300s!]
Found an optical defect in one of the inner elements of my Tamron 17-50mm /f2.8 VC a couple weeks ago. As soon as I discovered the problem, I shipped the lens over to a Tamron service center. I promptly received notice from Tamron that the issue would be repaired under warranty, but I’m still waiting […]Read More Life Without My Mid-Range Zoom
