The things I’m asked to do. . .

Sometimes a photography brief from a client can be a little unusual or challenging…

Latest was one where the requirements were to photograph a dog at a vets ‘Looking up expectantly’ and ‘Looking at his doggy toy’ amongst other shots.

But unfortunately, the dog was blind.

He didn’t want to be apart from his owner, so to get shots of him on his own, I got him to cuddle and stroke the dog until he relaxed a bit (vets are stressful places y’know) and quickly move out of shot.

This worked fairly well, but the best shots I think were with him being fussed over. Here’s one of him looking doleful yet cute:
