Tania Ryan and Jason Kenzie, from Vancouver, have been at it again with The Underdogs Project to raise money for animal welfare.
This time around they’ve revealed their secrets to how they photograph the quirky canines.
Tania said: “We both not only share the love of pets but also photography, and while we were working on creating the first of these photographs it became clear to us that we needed to do something special with these photos to help raise funds and awareness for animal welfare.”
To create the perfect Underdogs shot, photographer Jason lies beneath a strong sheet of glass, whilst Tania entices the model with treats.
And now the duo are raising the bar with their new shoot, featuring a wider range of dogs from a local doggy daycare centre.
From a Chihuahua to a German shepherd, each pooch had the chance to strike their best pose and show off their paws.
Jason explained: "The photography set-up took us quite a while, from the right balance of lighting, to creating a comfortable environment for the animals, and of course the camera settings.”
However, the imaginative duo aren’t stopping here, and have plenty in store for the future.
Jason said: “There's going to be other projects down the road, we can’t say exactly what they're going to be, but we believe that they are as exciting as these Underdogs”
