Roger Goode is exactly as you'd imagine him after listening to his radio show. High energy, ridiculously entertaining and stacks of fun. I was commissioned by Pet Prints Magazine to photograph him and his dogs for the July 2018 issue.

Dj Roger and his partner share their home with 5 black and white dogs. Acquired purposefully to coordinate as a set, his dogs are absolutely gorgeous. Multiple dog shoots require ninja skills for optimum positioning and cooperation, also known as treat wrangling, as displayed below.

We shot Dj Roger and his pack of hounds in various spots around the house, possibly the highlight was when he donned a onesie for some shots on the bed.

And some outdoor shots which varied from sedate (we managed to get one dog still at a time) to lunacy on a 'who let the dogs out' theme.

Portraiture, in my opinion, is all about capturing personality (Roger definitely has personality) so the images were very lively and full of energy. The dogs weren't quite sure what was going on and kept looking at me like I was mad.
