The photo above is of me (Steve Medina), photographing Gabriel, a devoted, joyful, responsible, persevering, and all around extraordinary service dog.
I'm a local Seattle photographer, specializing in artistic head-on dog portraits, and action dog shots.
As an absolute dog lover, I enjoy photographing the unique dignity, integrity, and the goofiness that we see in our beloved dogs.
Over the years, I've learned the best way to get dogs to cooperate in a photo shoot, is to treat them respectfully.
I believe that if you want a dog to respect you, you need to respect them...
