day after day. week after week. dog photographs turn out to become some of the most liked images on social media. and all for good reason. dogs are cute. and fun. and their adorable. yeah. yeah. we could go on and on. we have a cute lil doggy too.
the thing is almost all dog photographs tend to look the same. they’re all cute. till the time we stumbled upon carli davidson – an animal photographer from portland, oregon and her series of photographs called shake dogs. one day, while wiping her dog’s spit off the wall, she had an ah-ha moment. the way he shakes his big jowls.
maybe there was something there. and sure it was.
she took a few test shots and the images went viral.
this was way back in 2011. the idea has since got her worldwide acclaim and led to even more shake series on dogs, cats and puppies. this set her firmly on the worldwide map as a top animal photographer. but this was not all luck. carli has spent several years working with animal care and training at zoos and wildlife centres. this experience helps her in connecting with animals before a shoot.
