Behind the Scenes
11 December 2020
Dog Shows are not very much publicized, with the result that people may hear things about shows, but do not actually attend as visitors to see what happens. The perception then can exist that dogs are suffering or contained all day long. Media coverage does not occur frequently, but is a welcome educational tool when used as such.
When I do photograph events, such as dogshows, I like to capture what happens behind the scenes - here is where the true spirit of an activity lies. At shows, the dogs enjoy time out exclusively with their humans, they are groomed well and clean, they definitely are relaxed or having fun- like stealing their owners shoes!
May your 2021 include at least one visit to a dogshow!
