When writers and photographers join powers, respecting the other’s process of creation is essential. This is writer Alex Petri, hiding from a friendly dog’s affections so I could photograph both pup and owner candidly. I can’t imagine this was an easy task for Alex, an avid dog lover. Similarly, there were times I paused picture-taking so Alex could work, click-free.
Because we managed to give each other space to create, our stories incorporated both words and pictures quite fluidly. Fun behind-the-scenes photos were a definite bonus!
