Joey the Seattle Dog Model

Joey was my mock client shoot during the September Cowbelly Pet Photography workshop in Seattle. Having just done a shoot of another puppy- Jones, I was in puppy heaven. It’s not very often I get to photograph puppies, and I had forgotten how much of a blast it is. Thank you Joey for being such a fun and happy dog!

  1. Thanks Jamie! I love bright vivid color and am playing around with different shooting angles to get that bright blue sky in my photos. I just love how you capture that bright happy blue color that makes your photos carry your “signature”. Dogs don’t squint usually as much as humans too, so that helps! 🙂

  2. Tara Lynn- this shoot was actually at 5pm on a September evening, which was about two hours before sunset (not idea but I don’t have much choice with timing these workshop shoots- they are usually in the mid-afternoon). The thing about shooting in Seattle is you never know what you are going to get light-wise. It could be the middle of the day and look like it’s 4pm. I’ve had sunset shoot that are *way* too bright, and 7am shoots outdoors where I am shooting at 1600 ISO. It’s always a crap shoot here, but I always try and shoot either early morning or late afternoon/evening depending on the time of year. Whatever challenges the Seattle light throws at me (which are many), I just fix in Lightroom. Fill light is my friend. 🙂

  3. Jamie, you seem to shoot in broad daylight. I always shoot about an hour or so before sunset. I usually have humans with the pets in the shoot, although the shoot is focused on the dogs. How do you get such even lighting mid-day!?!?
