Working with animals is always unpredictable, that is the one thing you can rely on consistently. I am diligent about our shooting process, which involves putting the animal’s comfort first and the photography part second. That being said, the fact that we are prepared to handle any situation doesn’t necessarily mean funny and downright hilarious things won’t happen on set. In fact, they do, all the time.
I keep a folder called Gag Reel and this is where all the funny outtakes from our shoots go. From derpy dogs, to cats who forgot how to cat, and perfectly timed photos. With so much serious stuff going on out there in the world, I wanted to share a lighthearted and smile inducing part of our job: the bloopers, the outtakes, the photographs that otherwise never see the light of day. 🙂
