Doggy Model Call

Its time to dust off that ol' studio equipment and get ready for the winter time! For those of you that know me well, you know that I hate the cold...especially after living in Phoenix. Fortunately, taking pictures during the colder seasons usually isn't too bad because all that running around keeps me pretty warm. However, I really want to expand my studio work to add an option for some of the doggies and people that, too, don't like the cold and don't want to have a photo shoot outside. Also, if the demand is there, I would like to offer this option year-round just to have variety! Anyway, to get things rolling, I am performing a doggy model search to build my portfolio! The session will be FREE and will take place in my Cornelius, NC studio. I am hoping to do around 8-10 sessions between August 2nd and August 8th. I am not looking for any particular breeds, sizes, shapes, colors, etc, but I am looking for a good variety. I also ask that your dog be comfortable in new settings and situations and that he knows some basic commands. If you are selected, you will be required to sign a model release form for your pup and also participate in a future in-studio ordering session where you will select an image for a FREE 8x10/8x12 from your session. You will also be able to order any items from the full print and product list with absolutely no obligation. Plus, you can receive 50% off the on-location session fee if you choose to book a shoot in 2010.

So, how do you apply? Just shoot me an email ( with the following information:

  • Your name and contact info
  • Dog's name, breed, eye color
  • Some fun facts about your dog
  • His/her favorite toy
  • Commands and/or tricks he/she knows
  • Most importantly - a picture of your doggy!

Please have your submissions in no later than Sunday, July 25th. I will announce my selections on Monday, July 26th. Unfortunately, I won't be able to select every doggy that applies but I promise it is nothing personal!!!

Please contact me with any questions you may have!
