PostSubject: Zero is the best dog model ever :D (Loads of pics!)   Wed Apr 09, 2008 10:23 pm

As most of you know, I am a photographer and I'm currently attending art college to get my degree. I'm self taught in photography, and I started out by taking pictures of my black cat Sassy, who has since passed away (I found him when I was very young, so we are guessing he was atleast 16 when he died). Sassy was a wonderful model for the camera- he knew sit and stay, and other 'dog' commands which made it easy to photograph him. I have never been so close to any animal as him. I'm not a real fan of cats because Sassy was more like a dog, and when I'd meet other cats that weren't like him I thought that there was something wrong with them! lol! Anyway, Two months after he passed away Zero showed up as a stray (I think Sassy may have sent her my way Wink ) Zero and I have grown as close as Sassy and I were and I'm very glad that she came when she did. She filled a BIG void.

Anyway, I ended up talking WAY more than I thought I would! LOL. Zero has turned out to be a WONDERFUL model! She is such a beautiful dog and all of my best animal photographs are of her. So, I thought I would share my favotite ones! She's so good at posing too, she will stay at her pose, then she will hear the click of the lens and move a little to change her pose for me, I didn't teach her that!



















And, just for fun- Where my photography hobby and passion started, Here's my favorite pic of Sassy. I was just 12 when I took this (from a film camera too) :

They are all really good, you are very talented. Of course it helps to have such a beautiful model. My favorites are 2, 4, 5 and 8. Particularly 2, I could write an entire story about picture 2.

I wish you lived closer, I would gladly have paid you to take Dutch's portraits.

Thank you very much!
The second photo was inspired by a wonderful book actually! You should check it out! It's called "Dogs" by Catherine Johnson and William Wegman, it's a photo collection of vintage photographs, it's very cool!

I would have loved to take photos of Dutch, I wish I could travel at this time!
