In early 2006, I was contacted by Lupine, a dog accessories company on the east coast. Although I had no professional experience shooting animals, they liked my portraits and wanted to know if I’d be interested in shooting for their spring 2006 catalog.
Work with dogs!? Are you kidding me? Of course, I said yes.
Lupine was the first company (vs individual) to hire me for a full day. Little did they know I probably would have done it for free.
Working with dogs was an awesome experience. As was having my work adorn the front & back covers of their spring catalog.
