Meet Kai …
This girl has just rocketed to the top ranks of the scruffy dog commercial model database. This Mallorquin Mastiff girl had a session with me at the beginning of April, and it was a great opportunity to assess her abilities as a commercial model, moving her from the folder of owner-submitted dogs to Endorsed dogs … and in Kai’s case, an “Endorsed +” … a status reserved for dogs who can do just about anything. And she’s only 2 1/2 years old!
This girl can not only hold a reliable position and a steady focus in any surrounding and distraction — including the insanity of Kitchener’s very own Comicon weekend and a variety of costumed crazies romping around us, IN the midst of a sudden snow storm — she has a great bond with her guardian Kelly and learns on the spot.
When you get a dog like this, it’s like shooting fish in a barrel (not that I’d ever shoot fish – in a barrel or otherwise). Any photographer working with this girl just can’t miss. The camera absolutely loves her. Easy peasy.
Thank you, Kelly, for introducing me to your lovely girl. I look forward to the possibility of future shoots with you and Kai. Keep up the great work!
