Lick is a great photography project by Ty Foster. It came about accidentally when Ty was checking proofs from a different project and was laughing out loud at the ones of dogs captured mid-lick. I love the expressions! Ty plans to add more portraits and there will be a book.
Ty Foster does other nifty portraits of people and their dogs. There’s a collection of people with tattoos and their dogs called Dogs Ink.
Professional photographer, Steven Sable, has 13 tips for taking better photos of your dog. I really like the advice to stay at eye level or lower with your dog. Sable has two photographic series on rez dogs—Rez Dogs Biographies and Rez Dogs Scenarios. Most of the images are from the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, New Mexico, & Utah.

I wanted to post these last week, but the increased traffic on Seth Casteel’s site overloaded it (it may still be having some trouble). I can see why he became a hit—he catches dogs in a way we aren’t used to by capturing them in all their wildness or goofiness underwater. And it all came about because one client, Buster the Cavalier King Charles spaniel, kept getting in the pool during a photo shoot.
Check out the gallery of underwater dogs. If that link won’t load, try this smaller gallery of images. You can order prints and there’s going to be a calendar and a book. Cool!
