Dog photography


People magazine and Pedigree are sponsoring the world’s cutest rescue dog contest.

The contest is open from July 10 to 30. To enter, all you have to do is upload a photo of your dog in the online submission form. After filling out your contact information, tell the judges how adopting a dog changed your life — and theirs. Be sure to identify the rescue organization that helped you find your best furever friend.

After all the submissions have been received, People magazine editors will select 10 finalists.  Readers will narrow the candidate pool down to three and the winner will be chosen by People, Pedigree and celebrity judges.

The judges are LeAnn Rimes, a two-time Grammy Award winning singer; Olivia Munn, an actress; Melodie Bolin, director for Marketing operations at Mars PetCare US; and Kelli Bender, an editor at PEOPLE Pets, PEOPLE Magazine and’s “vertical dedicated to all things animal.”

The World’s Cutest Rescue Dog will be announced in October, live on the Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda. The winning dog will receive a custom photo shoot, a feature in People magazine and on, a year’s supply of Pedigree dog food and a $1,000 donation to the pet rescue organization of the winner’s choice.

Saturday, mid-afternoon, Joey and I are cruising Pet Co. because we need kibble.  (Actually, I’m the one who needs the kibble. Joey would much prefer take-out steak tartare.)

We pass a pen closing off a couple of aisles and a young woman with a major Nikon, who coos over how adorable Joey is, and suggests that we take advantage of the special deal on pet photography.

I explain that Joey is photophobic and formal efforts to take his picture result in something that the Amnesty International Canine Division would use as a poster for the prevention of exploitation of dogs.

“Oh, but I have a fast shutter!” she told me.

It was a worm on a hook.  I couldn’t resist the challenge.  I’m a photographer.  I love Joey and I know the issue isn’t shutter speed. It’s the invasiveness of a light-flashing, pointed, black prong challenging him that he HATES.
