ArcBARKS is an amazing non profit company that employs chefs with special needs. This company was founded by The Arc of Greensboro which is a group that focuses on changing the public perception of the mentally handicapped– to show that these special individuals are more than capable of extraordinary things.
For this shoot, I envisioned the hungry eyes of a pup (nose up) peeping the treats from under/behind the table. What I ended up with was a lot different from what I was planning on doing. That’s okay though! Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches (or in this case, the pups) and just keep snapping away with the camera.
I included an outtake from the shoot to show how difficult it really was to get an easily excitable pup to do things for the camera. Note the treat in my hand on the right and he is clearly looking at my remote instead. This pup, Charles Barkley, is indeed something else. I also just love the look of bewilderment on his face. I had to share this picture. It’s too hilarious not too!
