I spent the weekend in New York photographing dogs for ‘When Dogs Heal’ – the project I’ve been working on for the past year with Fred Says.

People often ask me if I have a hard job. I guess they have that old adage in mind ‘Never photograph kids and dogs.’ To be honest, I think this saying was made by a bunch of lazy photographers that just didn’t have the patience or understanding needed to photograph kids and dogs. Because when […]
