Fletcher, The Beagle

The following are a few shots of my 4 year old beagle, Fletcher who I realised I’ve never formally introduced. As you might have noticed, I end up with quite a lot of shots of Fletcher because I walk him most days in various forest/beach locations and often have my camera with me anyway.

I enjoy shooting him because unlike people, who might shift or exaggerate their expression or position when they see a camera in the corner of their eye, dogs tend not to notice or care about what you’re doing and thus don’t really possess the ability to pose or play up for the camera.

This results in the shots I end up with being reliably organic; the first one in this post consists of him waiting for me to stop playing around with my camera and catch up with him, the second captures the moment before he sped after a pigeon flying from a tree in the garden and in the third he had trotted back to check on me after being out of sight for a few moments.
