Austin and Dallas redheads,
A haiku caption
Will introduce one of them
On each coming day
A three-line poem,
Five / seven /five syllables
That’s the haiku way
The Story Behind the Photographs
Once again this year I had the pleasure of working with Animal Planet to take the official puppy portraits for this year’s Puppy Bowl XII. The photo shoot itself is a sport— an exuberant Olympic games in its own right.
Here are some unofficial “game” day stats: 11 hours, 80 puppies, 4080 images and innumerable instances of human cajoling involving silly faces, shrill noises and squeaky toys.
Visit Animal Planet’s Official Puppy Bowl site for more photos of the starting line up and puppy profile videos.
Needless to say we’ve been quite busy this summer – client shoots/travel, some vacation and of course photographing redheads. We hit the 100 milestone last week. Quite an accomplishment considering we didn’t know any redheads when we started this project 18 months ago. Below is the collage of all 101.
