Adrienne and Simba

Yea!  Its’ Friday!  I had the opportunity recently to do a photo shoot for Adrienne who wanted some pictures of her dog, Simba.  Simba is a Pineranian (a mix between a Miniature Pinscher and a Pomeranian). I’ll have to say I was a little nervous at first, but it was such a fun shoot!  Adrienne and Simba were great to work with and Simba is such a cute dog!  There maybe some modeling in his future!

Photographers if you are interested in any of the equipment I used feel free to drop me an email.  I’d be happy to answer any questions you have.  I’ll post links to the equipment I use after the photos.

Wondering about the Sunflower Sunset photo giveaway?  The winner is at the bottom of this post.

Have a great weekend!

  • Simba is very photogenic 🙂 Nicely done!

  • Excellent images Rick. You did a great job with a normally difficult subject. Have a great weekend.

  • Tremendous set of images. What a cute little dog

  • Great shots! I see that you picked up some new equipment??

    • Matt, Yes, some studio equipment so I can do portraits, product, commercial shoots. It’s a low budget setup, but it’s portable and it works.

  • These are great Rick. How did you get Simba to pose for you? Not only a talented photographer but good with dogs I see.

    • Edith, Thanks so much! Luckily the dog was pretty well behaved and I had a lot of help from Adrienne. We had a lot of little treats!

  • Kristina

    So crazy your pup looks so much like mine! I haven’t been able to find any dog like her. Must be the same breed!! 🙂

      It’s actually not mine. I just took pictures for Adrienne. Your Pineranian is adorable! I’ll have to let Adrienne know you commented on this thread. Thanks for visiting!
