Pet Portrait Cornwall – Flash

I recently photographed a very energetic pooch called Flash. Flash gave us the chance to capture a real mixture of shots on the day, due to his unending energy and zeal for life. He seemed to truly love every second of the shoot and was completely himself throughout.

Flash was a massive fan of a stick, which featured in a lot of our images. I really strive for the images I take to be a true and expressive view of the pet I’m photographing. This meant the stick needed to be in the image as much as Flash did.

Flash also loved getting into the water and taking a swim. We did many launches into the estuary with Flash running back towards me so I could capture that moment he shook himself off and got ready to go again. Sometimes I got myself a little too close to the action during the shake down and got a shower myself! Strolling back from the shoot and having dried off, I took the image I was most pleased with of the day. The image below with Flash in front of the green background really just summed up his character.
