Niagara Gazette — Q: What are some of your favorite shots?
A: Let me tell you about Mr. Beefy. He’s an old English Bulldog. It was the first time he’s ever been underwater and the picture shows his surprise, which is just hilarious.
Q: How do you feel about working as a photographer for so long and finding that it’s these pictures that have brought you some element of success?
A: I think it’s terrific. I wouldn’t have guessed that this is the series that would have gotten me all the attention. I’ve done a lot of work with dogs and cats on land. But, I’m just really interested in the emotion of dogs. It’s fascinating to me exploring the subject. Turns out the underwater aspect resonated with people around the world because it’s so unique.
Q: Why do you think people react to those shots like they do?
A: There so many types of emotions happening. We identify with dogs, and dogs identify with us. It’s my opinion that dogs aren’t that different from us in their emotional capacity. The bottom line is people love the pictures because people love dogs.
