These guys are Derby and Bandit. Derby is the rottweiler, and Bandit is the Blue Heeler. We did this shoot at my favorite location- Gasworks Park. This was extra special to me for two reasons: 1- Derby is sick with cancer, and anytime I hear the words “my dog is sick” I schedule the shoot just as fast as I can- sometimes even within a couple of days. Life with pets is just too precious and sadly there are no second chances. Derby is such a sweet and special guy, which is clear from his picture, and I felt honored that I got to capture his awesomeness.
And Bandit is just plain funny. I got several shots of him ‘spitting’ his ball out including one where he looks not unlike a puffer fish. I dig the mid-air action of this shot. I love Blue Heelers too so I was in heaven with Derby and Bandit. Plus their parents are really nice too.
Here are my top two favorite shots from our shoot.
Oh yes- before I forget! Raina Anderson is the lucky winner of the grand prize gift bag from our Urban Beast artist’s reception last Saturday. Raina will be using her gift certificate for her custom-designed canvas in January and I am looking forward to getting started with her. Congratulations Raina!
