Devin Miller and Booker, a retired Ketchikan Police Department working dog, anchored my March 2017 show at the Main Street Gallery in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Shot in Ketchikan with a Fuji x100s and and a Lumopro LP180 flash with Pocket Wizard triggers.

The show itself was shot over a year or more in Ketchikan, one of the doggiest towns in the United States.

Cinder
Cinder

Cinder, a little doodle puppy, turned out to be one of the most charming dogs in the show. When I left the photoshoot, I was a little frustrated — Cinder was so exuberant that I doubted I got anything worth printing. I was wrong, and this little guy turned out great. Nikon D600, 50mm.

Hiccup and Scout

A Coast Guard couple, Emily and Nick, let me photograph their Great Dane, hiccup, and their hound mix, Scout, for my show. This scene is lighted be a single flash and umbrella off to the top left and the overhead lighting, which give the reddish hues to the scene and the halo behind Nick's head. Fuji x100s.

Lola

This bulldog, Lola, and her owner, Skyleen, made for an engaging pair in an alleyway in Ketchikan. Lighted by a single flash and umbrella at about 90 degrees from the camera. Fuji x100s.

Bob, pictured reaching for a treat, was the most striking Pomeranian I've ever met — well behaved, confident, patient. Fuji x100s.

Puppy in Kasaan
Puppy in Kasaan

This picture was shot during one of the best events I've ever covered for the Ketchikan Daily News, the celebration of Son-i-Hat's Whale House in Kasaan. The tribal house had fallen into disrepair over decades, and through a period of years residents of the tiny Prince of Wales Island village restored the house.

During the celebration, I snapped this Ketchikan girl holding a puppy while wading in the tide of Kasaan Bay. Fuji x100s.

Bella

Erica and her mastiff, Bella, share a look at sunset on Salvage Trail north of Ketchikan. Bella died of old age after this picture was taken and before the show opened in March. Nikon D600.

Boomer was a beautiful bloodhound to photograph, and in this shot is standing on the family couch with his owner's daughter. Fuji x100s.

Zeus

Zeus the terrier did well on this rainy-day shoot. I originally picked him out for his ability to grin on command, but the weather ended up being so nasty and the colors of the rain coats so nice that I stuck with this square pet-and-owner image. Nikon D600.

Bailey

Bailey the beagle was one of the first dogs I photographed after I was given a show slot for the Main Street Gallery. I shot Bailey and her owner in summer 2016 in Refuge Cove. Nikon D600.
