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.

Project 52 – Shoes ~ Vancouver area pet photography

For the second week in a row the new theme was posted for the pet photography Project and an older photo jumped to my mind. Several years ago I did this:

Now, we are supposed to shoot new photos according to the theme, so I couldn’t just use that old one, but before I got a chance to do a new-and-improved version I went out to the barn with a friend of mine. And, once there, I couldn’t resist a cliche “shoe” shot…

I really thought that might be it, but then at the eleventh hour I grabbed this new-and-improved version of Rivet in boots. She was not amused…

Ozy & Tobi – Pinto horses ~ Vancouver area pet photography

I don’t get the chance to photograph horses very often, but last weekend I went out to the barn with my friend to meet her new horse.

This is Ozy. It isn’t the more traditional portrait that I hoped to take but I quite like the way it shows all the colours and shadings he has. There will be opportunities for portraits on another day.

While I was there I took some photos of Tobi as well. His owner says she has a hard time photographing his two-toned eyelashes, so I did my best to get some photos that emphasize that detail.

I need a lot more practice with horses, and I am going to do my best to schedule more time for it this year.
