I love sleeping in just like anyone else, but I also enjoy being up and watching the sunrise. When you’re up before the sun, it feels like your really getting a jump on the day – and when a client is equally as eager to get a jump on the day, that’s when you know your going to have an awesome shoot!
Colorado light. Sunrise. Awesome location in Boulder. Life is good.
It’s not everyday you get to hangout with puppies on a daily basis, much-less get to give them peanut butter and take their pictures. This book is filled with over 60 pictures of puppies doing what they do best. This book is chocked full of the same awesomeness as the first book, just 100x cuter and with a-lot-more-puppies. So grab yourself a copy, or even better, grab one for your niece of nephew’s birthday, or for your grandma’s birthday. Trust me, there is nothing like this out on the market(Well, you know, besides the other LICK book we have, which is also awesome and full of rad-ness).
You’ll definitely be a unique gift giver this year.
I am pretty sure Hunter S. Thompson had it right with his sleeping schedule. He’d go to bed at 7am and wake up in the afternoon around 3pm and then proceed to do ‘Hunter S. Thompson’ activities for the remaining time he was awake. Albeit he decided on this schedule for totally different reasons, I really want to adopt it. Everyone knows the best time of the day to shoot is early, early in the morning and in the evening. The golden hour. Well I am starting to favor the early morning a lot more. Getting up prior to 5am and having that beautiful light to play with right before sunrise is definitely a treat. It’s almost unfair, everything looks good with that light.
Images aside, just getting up to watch the sunrise is a real treat. Why lie in bed waiting for an alarm to start your day when mother nature does it in a much better, much more beautiful way.
When you are a dog photographer, it’s always a real treat when you get to shoot for such an awesome brand like Blue Buffalo. These images were shot for their ‘breeds needs’ campaign. Below are a few of my favorites from the shoot.
