Loose Leashes – the photography of Ron Schmidt

As my readers know, I don’t make product endorsements very often.  But, I had to share the great dog photography of Ron Schmidt with my readers.

I discovered Ron’s work last year when I purchased a calendar, Dogma – A Dog’s Guide to Life.  I loved the combination of dog photos and dog-inspired proverbs.  I have purchased another Dogma calendar for this year!

Ron trained in photography and worked with fashion and celebrity photographers for years before branching out into commercial photography on his own in 1999.  A holiday card developed for friends and relatives that featured the family dog carrying a Christmas tree quickly morphed into a career in dog photography.  Ron and his wife launched Loose Leashes in 2005 and they donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of prints to animal welfare causes (another reason to like them!)

I won’t break any of Ron’s copyright by attempting to copy his photography on this blog – but check out Loose Leashes today!
