For the last few years I’ve been working on a series of photos of the people I photograph on stage at home with their pets. These photos are of Nick Wheeler from the All-American Rejects and the ever resplendent Dexter.
Nick and I have been talking about taking these photos for a long time, but our constantly conflicting schedules made it difficult. That’s the reality of two people who tour trying to find time where they’re both in Los Angeles and not working. Back in May we finally got to spend a day doing this. Dex is such a good sport, though he continued to look at us both as if to say “I’m not sure I signed up for this part guys?”. It’s always great when I get to do these shoots, they’re more special when they’re folks I’ve known a long time and know pretty well as was the case here.
There will be more photos of Nick and Dex released through Petfinder in the near future in conjunction with a promotion they’re helping out with to encourage pet adoption.
Dexter is the dog that I award the “cutest dog alive” to these days. It’s just true, see for yourself:
