Little Kids and their Big Dogs

Little Kids and their Big Dogs

This is a brilliant collection, by Andy Seliverstoff, very well done.

I highly recommend clicking on the first picture in the set (the airborne poodle) and then using the right arrow (or the right arrow on your keyboard) and moving through the collection zoomed out. They’re amazing images.

One might chalk these up to high end gear (and a fast lens for shallow depth of field) but that’s only a small part of making excellent portraits like these. They’re well lit, composed, and no doubt each shot was one of many.

The last one actually looks like a bear to me. What do you think?

Christopher Guest Channels Best in Show for Brilliantly Bizarre PetSmart Ads

Christopher Guest Channels Best in Show for Brilliantly Bizarre PetSmart Ads

Oh my god, these are incredible. If you don’t know the work of Christopher Guest then you’ll still appreciate the idea of “pet-obsessed nutjobs” but Guest’s improvisational, “documentary” style is a perfect fit for these ads.

If you were a fan of Christopher Guest’s classic movie Best in Show, PetSmart has the perfect campaign for you.

The brand, with agency GDS&M, hired the writer, actor and filmmaker to direct a set of commercials in his signature mockumentary style, under the tagline “Partners in Pethood.” The results are, unsurprisingly, great.

Best in Show remains one of Guest’s best movies of all time, hilarious and if you get the DVD, don’t forget to watch the extras and outtakes, they’re as good or better than the movie.
