Dan began photographing his beloved Dalmatian, Bridget Bar-Dot 14 years ago, because she was so photogenic. When friends who had expressed an interest in having Dan take portraits of their pets were thrilled with the final results, Dan realized that he could create the type of pet portraits that could capture the individual spirit of each person’s pet for years to come. FETCHING DOG PHOTOS is the outgrowth of that idea.
