Dogy Day Afternoon with Sparky & Wiley

Anaheim Hills Dog Photography

Mike is a film maker and the man behind the lens at Mission Visual. We’ve been friends for almost ten years now, and met when I was photographing yacht weddings in Newport Harbor.   I wanted to photograph some big breed dawgs so I headed over to the McCaleb household in Anaheim Hills and then we walked over to a local park for some a fun double dog photography session.

Wiley a pure breed Husky and Sparky the German Shepard mystery mix dawg might as well have been cats!  They were not in the least bit interested in me.  Especially not at all interested in having any dog photography done.  They are both fairly very independent and as such, totally into doing their own thing.  They did mind me briefly when I attempted to doggie bribe them with my handy Zukes Mini Natural Salmon Treats (all natural, gluten and wheat free, corn-free and soy-free).  But it was only temporary and Sparky totally turned his nose up at that.  But he like the Wellness Pure Rewards:  Turkey Jerky (grain-free and wheat-free) and thought I was kinda cool for just having some yummy jerky with me.

Later on, after the shoot when Mike had seen his ridiculously wonderful pet photography images, he told me:  “You know, its so cool that you were able to capture Wiley doing that pig face thing.  At home, he’ll push his nose up against the sliding glass doors on the porch with his tongue hanging out and just stare inside at us.”

BTW: If you noticed the dog harnesses, that’s because Sparky & Wiley take Mike for walks in Anaheim Hills, and not the other way around.

Anaheim is home to Disney Land and one of the most famous and often photographed dogs on the planet, Pluto.

Location:  Anaheim Hills, California

These photographs are so… special! It truly captures their personalities. I will forever cherish them. You must have been extremely… patient with our doggies. I rarely am able to get a decent photograph.

Thanks so much,

Marc, this is a great keepsake. The dogs are getting older now, and I know that one day, these will be even more treasured than they are now. It was a lot of fun going with you on the shoot, and I was really impressed with your technique. Now, if I can just figure out a way to make film’s for people’s pets…
