There comes a time when as a photographer you start to yearn for a project to work on that makes you think and gets the creative juices going. For me, my project was an easy choice. If you know us personally you know that my son Jack and his little death row rescue dog called Jess have a bond of immeasurable dimensions. They talk in their own language, sleep together, eat together, play together and generally adore each other. It really was a case of who rescued who.
In Dec 13 Jack ( who is also my assistant/model/helper) was fighting for his life after being airlifted to Randwick Children’s hospital. Not to be outdone, Jess was also fighting for her life one year later at the end of 2014 when she took on a large black snake and lived to tell the tale. Without question Jack pulled through because of Jess and Jess pulled through because of Jack due to many bedside visits from both and the will to live for each other.
So in thinking of a project to do and knowing that I am so eternally grateful to have both of them still here with us , I thought it would be great to do “A boy and his dog….” series where they can be what ever they want to be and we can watch them grow up together.
Jack has full input on what themes we choose and we have some amazing ones coming up that will push my boundaries as a photographer and editor and I look forward to the challenge ………… so please enjoy the first installment of “A boy and his dog…..”
