get ready to photograph
a billionaire philanthropist and his charming dog?
as professional pet photographers we like to do our homework.
we try to find out as much about the subject we’re going to photograph as possible and
the kinds of photographic conditions we are walking in to . . . but sometimes this isn’t always possible.
fortunately for us W. Brett Wilson just released a book titled, “Redefining Success,” making our research a bit easier.
the book’s cover photograph was made by the very talented Jason Stang.
we loved the chair used in that image . . . so upon arriving at W. Brett Wilson’s office I was happy to see the very same chairs.
right away I knew there would be an image of the very well-groomed (by Lori at Canine Oasis) J. Cash Wilson in that chair.
my editor Sherry Butt would be conducting an interview for Citizen Pet magazine while I would create some photographs.
prior to meeting W. Brett I set up the lights bringing the two chairs together so that J. Cash would be able to relax beside him.
I visualized the shot I wanted and waited for the appropriate moment to make it happen . . . there would be only one chance.
