Smart Doggie


Smart Doggie – part of a series of photographs in collaboration with my West Highlands White Terrier – “Tiki”.

Tiki, a rescue from a southern puppy mill, came in to our lives just when I was starting to have more time to dedicate to my photography.  As the rest of the family seemed to run from my camera and modeling duties, or were simply busy, it was just Tiki and I in the studio.

Tiki immediately took to the studio and the treats that were offered.  Even today if I pull out my studio lights, Tiki gets excited and sits where he thinks the photograph might occur.

Once when setting up an assignment photo for a Halloween shoot, Tiki wandered into the set and sat. So of course I had to give him a mask and snap the shot.

More and more images ensued. Tiki as a Broadway Actor. Tiki as Aladdin. Tiki as a ballerina. Many images were inspired by finds in the baby clothing section of the local thrift shop.
