Once again I had the pleasure of working with Animal Planet photographing over 80 puppies and kittens for this year’s Puppy Bowl XIII.  A great experience as always.

Puppy Bowl XII

by Keith Barraclough

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.

Puppy Bowl X

by Keith Barraclough

Back in October, I had the honor of photographing all the puppies for Animal Planet’s  Puppy Bowl X.  I promise you will not want to miss the game, or the half-time show, airing this Sunday, February 2 at 3pm on Animal Planet.

Get pumped by watching adorable and adoptable pups practicing at the Puppy Bowl Experience in New York’s Times Square. Puppies are on the field all this week from 11 a.m. to 7p.m., with breaks in between.  Below are some of this year’s star players – Willow, Sharpie, Farkle and Arya:

by Keith Barraclough

It’s the start of the dog show season, climaxing with the Westminster Dog Show in February.  I thought I would share some images from my Animal Planet shoot.  Below are three dog breeds we photographed for the Animal Planet Dog Selector – the Doberman, Komondor and Shar Pei.

Dog Portraits

by Keith Barraclough

I’ve been reworking some of my dog portraits that I took for Animal Planet.  I like the originals, but wanted to play around with the look and feel – getting a more rustic look.  Here’s a first look.  I’ll post more in the coming weeks.

Puppy Bowl IX

by Keith Barraclough

Animal Planet dubs it “the biggest game on all fours”,  involving 75 puppies, 21 kittens, nine hedgehogs, and dozens of crew members and volunteers.  That’s just a small glimpse into what it took to produce and shoot Puppy Bowl IX – airing this Sunday at 3 p.m. on Animal Planet.  During the two-day filming in November, my assistant Adele Godfrey and I took portraits and shot the production stills of this year’s game.
