Low-cost publishing-on-demand services, like Blurb or Lulu, are encouraging photographers of all genres to design and print really great, quirky photobooks that might not otherwise come into being.

In addition, there are many other non-wild dogs out for walks and runs with their owners. So, I began by snapping canines and the craziness that goes along with the dog world. Before I knew it, I had adopted a new theme for my personal work."
