Riley ~ BLOW project ~ Guelph pet photographer

This is Riley, a schnauzer mix who belongs to the amazingly talented dog-walker / dog-handler Shannon of Release the Hounds in Guelph.  Shannon helped with most of the session in this BLOW series, and her scruffies Carys and Riley were two of my first test models.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with this very popular pet photography series, I introduced the much-awaited BLOW project in this very first blog entry, and it has become a big hit on sites like Bored Panda and across the globe in the UK, France, Estonia, and even Japan among other countries.

Thank you, Riley, for always being stellar.  And thank you again, Shannon, for your help with this series!

Stay tuned right here on the scruffy dog blog for more exciting entries in the BLOW photo series!  You can also see more of BLOW across different online publications like Dog Milk and This Dog’s Life (sometimes called Dogs vs Fans) as well as real publications globally.

Wallace ~ BLOW project ~ Kitchener-Waterloo pet photographer

This is Wallace, the wirehaired pointing Griffon … and these are his images from my much-awaited BLOW project.  I introduced this special pet photography series in this very first blog entry, but given the variety I strove to capture of each participant I felt that individual entries were warranted.

Thank you, Wallace, for being so shaggily amazing … even if you are a chickn$hit when it comes to shiny floors.  😉

Fiona ~ BLOW project ~ Newmarket, Aurora pet photographer

Oh, Fiona.  I can’t even begin to describe how much I adore this little dog.  Fiona is a Boston Terrier / Polish Lowland Sheepdog cross, adopted through Boston Terrier Rescue.  What a find!  And these are her images from the much-awaited BLOW project.  I introduced this special pet photography series in this very first blog entry, but given the variety I strove to capture of each participant I felt that individual entries were warranted.

This little girl — like an respectable Boston Terrier or BT cross — had dozens of expressions, so it was impossible for me to narrow her images down to just two or three.

Thank you, Fiona, for being such a superstar.
