Professional Photographer Andy Seliverstoff of St. Petersburg, Russia has actually owned dogs for over 25 years and has naturally come to be familiar with shooting guy’s best friend, especially big dogs like Great Danes.
Over the last couple of years he’s obtained more major about his photography and focuses on capturing mostly dogs, even calling his web site Great Dane Chronicles. Hey claims that not only are dogs his favored models, but there are plenty of opportunities and subjects to shoot in his field.
One project that he’s been working on is called Little Kids and Their Big Dogs– a collection of friendly big dogs that interact with kids. Great Danes, Saint Bernards, Leonbergers, Newfoundlands, Irish Wolfhounds, and extra show the bond they have with the children in their lives. That relationship makes for some moving compositions and along with Seliverstoff’s instructions and patience, some cute pictures. His tip for capturing the best shot possible is that it’s needed to like what you are shooting, the rest turns out by itself.
When asked why he started focusing full-time on digital photography projects like this Seliverstoff said that working with dogs brings him a great deal of happiness and that’s the best kind of work he would wish upon anyone. He is releasing a book featuring the photos he’s taken over the years of little kids and their big dogs, hoping that the viewer sees and is inspired by the unlimited happiness and mutual confidence his subjects place on display. The cute big dog photo series can be ordered through Revodana Publishing and ships as a quality hardcover book.
Here is a collection of some of those pictures. Seliverstoff’s favorite photos are the compositions that involve the dogs leaping. Check out more of his work on his Instagram.
