We're working on some cool display portraits for the new Highland Pet Supply dog training center.
Liz belongs to one of HPS's managers. She was a real hoot. Look at that lip! She had it curled up, just about to bark at me.
As I always say, you capture children in split seconds, and dogs in microseconds. Liz didn't stop moving the whole time.

Nicholas Kniel came by the studio last week with the printer proofs of Ribbon: The Art of Adornment, and I must say it's quite a thrill to be a few weeks away from the official release of my first book. It's Nick's first book as well, and he's already pitched two more ideas to the publisher that have been warmly received.
The photography reproduced beautifully, all of the nuance, the color, the light and shadow that we spent all last summer creating, it's all there. Wow. There is even a final chapter which features images from the very first shoot Nick and I created together, back in 2005.
And how cool is it to see your name on Amazon.com?! My sister Allison has published several books (see one here). She never told me it was this exciting. :-)

One fine day Pooh had stumped up to the top of the Forest to see if his friend Christopher Robin was interested in Bears at all. At breakfast that morning, he had suddenly thought of a new song. It began like this:
"Sing Ho! For the life of a Bear!"When he had got as far as this, he stretched his head, and thought to himself "That's a very good start for a song, but what about the second line?" He tried singing "Ho," two or three times, but it didn't seem to help. "Perhaps it would be better," he thought, "if I sang Hi for the life of a Bear." So he sang it... but it wasn't.
"Very well then," he said, "I shall sing that first line twice, and perhaps if I sing it very quickly, I shall find myself singing the third and fourth line before I have time to think of them, and that will be a Good Song."
- A.A. Milne, Christopher Robin Leads an Expotition
