I am adopting a new philosophy from one of my favorite photographers…GOYA. It stands for Get Off Your Arse. Zack Arias is someone I look up to in the sense that he set out to make something of himself as a photographer and he has been successful in doing just that! I want to do the same and his philosophy of GOYA is to simply get out and shoot. Work on your skills and work on making yourself a better photographer. I spent half of my summer so far involved with basketball and now I am ready to refocus (no pun intended). So here is my first posting for the GOYA category!

To start us off, I had to take some inspiration from another photographer that I admire, Anna Kuperberg. She has two divisions to her photography business, one is for her portraiture of people and the other is for dogs (SlobberSpace). I thought how much fun it would be to try out portraiture of dogs. Well, let me say that I think that infants are easier and pet photography has earned a newfound respect in my mind! Or, it could have been that my dog, Dexter, was just that big of a nerd that he didn’t want his picture taken. Either way here is the beginning of GOYA!



This last one is my favorite!

    well you would never tell from these shots that your dog was not a great model! Love the last one but they are all so good.
