May I welcome to the stage Whisky, Eric, Lenny, Mazey and of course Raggle.
As part of the promotion for our new book 'Bark! The Herald Angels Sing', our publishers WW Norton ran a competition to find a new canine star for the 2016 xmas card. In fact we selected two, Lenny + Mazey.
Knowing we faced the challenge of working with unfamiliar dogs, I designed the shot to work with a variety of characters and tested it first with two of our friends' dogs Whisky and Eric. It was an unexpected bonus to have Raggle appear in this year’s Christmas card - once she saw the set, my eldery, sleepy but greedy studio companion jumped in and waited for the treats.
All prepared, we had great fun with the competition shoot and we were very happy to get lovely shots of all 5 dogs.
