Dogs of New York City | Pet Photography

If you have been missing the weekly updates of the adoptables Posh Pets Photography meets each week, there is a reason – we’ve been spending our time being a New York City pet photographer…

Now, if there is one thing you notice at first glance is that New Yorkers LOVE their dogs! So many cute, furry faces out on the streets enjoying the city life. As a tourist and a pet photographer, I am always walking around with my camera. It is therefore only natural that I would stop a few and ask for quick picture. Hope you enjoy this little peak into our travels through the eyes of the dogs…

We spent some time walking through Manhattan which is where we met 2 year old Panchetta.  She was enjoying the gorgeous weather, patiently waiting to cross the road with her human at 86th and Lexington. A Boston in New York!

Then I met Markus, a Tibetan Terrier who enjoys his walks on Park Avenue. He was sporting his new summer cut. When I asked if I could take his picture, I was told that Markus loves to strike a pose and show us his best smiles. He certainly didn’t disappoint!

This is Jessie, an absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous Italian Greyhound. She and her human were enjoying the sites and sounds of The Boardwalk at Coney Island/Brighton Beach in Brooklyn. She took a little time to warm up to me, but after a thorough examination of my camera and copious amounts of scratchies later, she was ready to show off her model-worthy good looks. Jessie is 10 years old…love the senior dogs!

Last, but certainly not least, was appropriately named Fluff who was enjoying the evening in the company of his little human. His mom graciously allowed us to photograph her happy 6 year old boy!

Project 52 – Personal Work | New York Photography

Project 52 – Personal Work | New York Photography

It is Friday, which means it must be Project 52 day! This week, we were invited to showcase some “personal work”. In other words, to photograph something just for ourselves without the motivation of a paying client. Two things that I love are travel and photography and this week I got to do both! Instead of my usual DSLR when I am working, I grabbed my Fuji x100 with its set focal length and got to play tourist for a day…

If I had to choose a city to live in the United States, it would be New York. (Although my husband loving reminds me that one only loves to live in New York if one is also wealthy…which we are not. He might have a point.) I love the hustle and bustle, the noise, the fact that the city truly “never sleeps”, and the people who I have always found to be loud, but friendly. Photographically, I love the skyline. Especially when the sun goes down.

Fortunately, I was in New York this past weekend. So, here is shot of that famous Manhattan skyline, taken at about 10:00 p.m. on a rooftop across the East River in Brooklyn. The very prominent lighted building is the tower that has been built on the site of Ground Zero. It is not quite finished, but it is definitely getting there.

Playing a little with my settings and I was able to create an abstract version. I find the bokeh of the lights very pretty.

…Wall Street

… as well as the grand lady herself.

And, because when I travel, I always take note of how a city treats its animals, here are a few I captured this weekend…

Dogs can do banking in New York City! Interestingly enough, the bank that offers this is TD Bank. For those who do not know, the TD stands for “Toronto-Dominion”. which was its name before all of the Canadian banks rebranded to acronyms (BMO was “Bank of Montreal”, RBC was “Royal Bank of Canada” etc.). So, it is a little “home away from home” and they treat dogs special to boot!


Thanks for following along! Next, is Ann Kearns, Hamilton Ontario Pet Photographer.  Please check out her personal work this week and go all the way around until you end up back here with Posh Pets!
