In the Dead of Winter

Updated: Jan 31, 2023

I'll admit that winter tends to be a little slow in the world of outdoor canine photography when you live in New England (at least for me). Maybe its because I'm naturally more withdrawn in the winter months, so I don't advertise as much? But I mean who wants photos of dead trees and brown grass anyway? But is it really that bleak? I'm challenging my own perceptions and going to say no, I don't think so! Pine trees, fir trees and holly, are green and lush all winter. Freshly falling snow is absolutely gorgeous and then add the warmth of the sun shimmering off the snowy trees, breathtaking! My mission this winter is to show that even in the cold depths of January beautiful shots can be had. During this slow time I like to focus on my education and learning as many skills as possible. So I will be using that time to develop and improve my photographic know how taking another masterful course, and come spring with some hard work I will emerge better than I was.

With learning comes doing, so I will need something to shoot. Attention all dog owners! This is a modeling call!

DISCLAIMER: These sessions will be cold! If you are someone who does not like to be outside in the cold please do not apply. These sessions will be outdoor, wooded areas. Locations will vary, more info will become available at a later time regarding locations.

Additional details:

  • The sessions will be approximately 30-60 minutes.

  • These will be dog only sessions.

  • I am looking for medium to large dogs who are bred to endure cold weather (sorry no greyhounds please).

  • I will also need some flexibility in schedules due to weather restraints, colds, flu etc... I will not shoot in, nor ask you to endure rain, heavy snow or temps below 30 degrees.

  • I will only be accepting dogs for 3-4 modeling sessions (space is limited!).

  • I will accept 1 or 2 dogs per session, so please feel free to apply if you have more than one pooch.

  • Previous models are also welcome and encouraged to apply.

  • Sessions will be held throughout the winter months, December, January & February.

  • Payment will be in the form of 10 social sharing low resolution digital images of the session as well as 20% discount on any products purchased from me.

I will be accepting applications through the end of November 2022. I will reach out to all applicants in early December 2022 to let you know if you were selected or not.
