I'm a little behind on blogging so these photos are from a couple months back. Better late than never with these two. Chase and Oscar are Boykin Spaniels. Never heard of the breed? Neither had I. Boykin Spaniels were first bred by South Carolina hunters during the 1900's as a small rugged dog suitable for hunting ducks and wild turkeys in the Wateree River Swam. Chase and Oscar are both trained hunting dogs. I got the demo! Enjoy!
Bubee was great to work with! She is 11 1/2 years old and almost completely blind. The thing I like about dog photography is how unpredictable each shoot becomes. Although I needed to change up my technique a little to accommodate Bubee's vision I could not have asked for an better dog to work with. We were able to get portrait style photos with almost no coaxing as well as action shots while Bubee explored the park. I could tell that Bubee truly loved being outdoors (I'm told that Bubee also enjoys paddling with his mom). We ended up with some great pictures! I would be happy to photograph Bubee anytime. Thanks Dawn for contacting me to photograph Bubee. She's one of a kind.
