Our good friends at Bone Adventure Pet Gear and Grooming have generously offered space at their northeast location to host a photography show by yours truly. We’ve been talking about doing something like this for over a year, and now the timing is right, and we couldn’t be more excited!
I could of just printed some of my existing work and it would have been fine, but of course I wanted to do something different and perhaps more spectacular. The style and general feel of this series is not what I normally do, but I’ve had the idea in my head for a while, and am definitely open to shooting client sessions in this style. You may remember my call for models last month, and the crazy good response you all gave me! I had over 140 applicants for my little project, and it was really great to see so much support. I arbitrarily chose my favorites of the bunch, and we headed over to Spinario Mid-Century Modern Design to set up shoots. Each model had their own styled setting with vintage furniture and accessories. The dogs were unbelievably good…. I wasn’t expecting them all to to be so cooperative, but it was great!
So the photos are done, the prints are ordered, and the postcards are out. It’s been a really short timeline, but it was good to push me to get it all done. The images will be up at the NE Bone Adventure (312 E Hennepin Ave) from next Saturday, June 26th, through July 31st. I’ll be at the store on Sunday, June 27th from about 10am – 1pm for an informal reception during the NE Pedal Pub Races (something hilarious and awesome that you NEED to check out), and again on Friday, July 30th during the NE Dog Parade. (time TBD)
HUGE thank you to Spinario for letting us use their space and inventory! If you like what you see in the images, be sure to stop by their rad store at 1300 2nd St. NE, as most everything pictured is available for purchase! And speaking of purchase, all of the work at the show will be for sale, and you can purchase prints at any size. Greeting cards and calendars will also be available, if you’re interested. See you there!
