Start your day off with a free new wallpaper for your iPhone or iPod touch!

My dog photography career began last year when I adopted a puppy of my own (Kiki).  She quickly made many friends at the local dog park.  This introduced me to the world of fun and challenge that is trying to photograph dogs running, wrestling and in general going wild in a large fenced in area.  

For photographing candid action shots of dogs I mostly use my Nikkor 105mm VR micro lens because of its fast focusing and great sharpness.  I find 105mm is enough length because eventually all dogs will pass close by.

Reserve a candid action photography session for your dog today, or find out more about them.

How Saint Petersburg area dogs might think

This Australian Sheperd is a great listener

Last Sunday I found myself in several pet photography situations, all with dogs.  It got me to thinking, "what do dogs really think when they meet, play with, and wrestle with each other?"  The above and the following is my attempt at reading their minds.  The black & white Border Collie mix, by the way, is my crazy puppy, Kiki.

"I am not opposed at all to public displays of affection."


"Who in the world could ever pick on me, a cuddly 4-month old pug puppy?"


Apparently dogs are immune to the cuddliness of their own kind and play rough with one and all!


"If they will not play nice then I will just take my ball and go home!"


"Is a single blade of grass enough to hide me?"

Please feel free to put in the comments below what you think these dogs might be thinking.
