Compare and Contrast: Art Dog

7 May

I am very fortunate to own such a beautiful dog, a very fancy chihuahua named Pixie La Rue.  Of course everyone thinks their dog is the cutest dog, but Pixie is something special.  Not only is she quite pretty, she loves to pose for pictures, and the camera loves her face.  As my fellow photographers can appreciate, it is an inspiration and a pleasure to work with a beautiful model, especially when they themselves have an appreciation for the craft and an ability to draw on the history of art in honing their skills, and Pixie has done her research and has her modeling style down pat.  But don’t take my word for it, her work speaks for itself:

Pixie, in repose

Bravo Pixie, Bravo.  She really gave me something special during that session, although, the caliber of her work is quite high to begin with.  Let’s take a peek at her portfolio, shall we?

Pixie, luxuriating in bed, radiates a content and relaxed air. Despite having a difficult day, Pixie is a professional through and through, and never allows her personal upsets to come through in her work.

Pixie, in a more risque bedroom photograph, pushes through the distraction of a cheese sampler on the craft table, to deliver some of her best work.

And finally, despite her trepidation at working with a mannequin hand, Pixie keeps her cool so we can finish the shoot.

I mean, how can other dogs expect to compete with that?
