2015 Pet Photography Calendar

The calendar is going to the printers!  I might be biased but I think it will be another good one.

2014 Pet Calendar Model Call!

It is that time again! I am looking for pets of all shapes and sizes to be in my 2014 calendar.

creativeLIVE workshop in Seattle

The week before last I was in Seattle for 4 nights. Two of the days I participated in Arica Dorff‘s Pet Photography Workshop at creativeLIVE, and the third day I played tourist.

This was my second time at creativeLIVE. I enjoyed myself greatly both times. There is something special about spending such a concentrated period of time with people who share my enthusiasms. My fellow students at the workshops and I will stay in touch and continue to encourage and support one another.

Here we all are after the second day. This photo was taken with Karen’s camera.

On the sightseeing day we managed to fit in many of Seattle’s tourist landmarks including the Space Needle, Pike’s Market, and a view of downtown from the hillside. My absolute favourite part was the Chihuly glass exhibit at the base of the Space Needle. I would happily go again – it was easily the best $19 I spent that day. My photos don’t show the scale of the work. These pieces are enormous.

Pet photography workshop at CreativeLIVE!

Next week I will be heading down to Seattle for a two day workshop on Pet Photography with Arica Dorff. You will be able to watch it live for free on CreativeLIVE. The workshop runs on May 23rd & 24th. I can’t wait!

Library photo exhibition ~ Squamish Valley Photo Club

The Squamish Valley Photo Club is holding an exhibit in the Squamish library foyer in December. We were all asked to submit the photo that we considered to be The Best of 2012.

I had a difficult time choosing one photo that I thought could be “The Best” one of the year for me. In the end this one won, mostly because the effect is exactly what I was hoping to get when I set up my lights. Also, this is a good photo of my dog, Caiman, and I am rarely happy with the photos I take of him.

There is an opening reception at the library tomorrow (December 5th) from 6-8pm, and the display will be up for the rest of the month. Please come by and check it out!

2013 Calendar – Sea to Sky pets

The pet calendar is going to print!

I will have a limited quantity available for sale. These are good quality press-printed 8×8″ calendars from printed in Canada. They are $25 each, plus actual shipping costs, and you can email me at photos@tracysutherland.com to place an order. I ship Canada Post, preferably, which is cheapest but means that any out of country orders may not arrive before January 1st.

Photo contest placement news!

This weekend I am busy taking photographs in Squamish and Whistler for the calendar, but I had to make time to share some exciting news. Today I awoke to an email congratulating me on having won 4th prize in a dog photo competition!

This is the photo of my dog Caiman:

Squamish area Casting Call for pets

Last call for models! I will be making my final selections for the calendar in the next few days. There is still time to nominate your pet, if you hurry! This year all photo sessions will be taking place in Squamish, BC.

Most of the pets that have been entered so far are dogs. I would love to get more variety in this calendar!
