Greetings and Happy New Year –

My first class as a graduate student officially starts tomorrow. I am very excited and a little nervous, too – a good nervous. To calm those nerves, I completed a redesign of my website – BJ Spanos Ink Photography. I invite you stop by and  let me know what you think. It’s simpler then the previous site, but that is in keeping with my change in creative directions. I am still very much available for photo sessions and would love to shoot your dogs, cats or other critters in action and being the magnificent creatures that they are!

When I get a free moment, I will share with you more about my new artistic direction – that is, using HDR, textures and digital painting techniques to create unique and dramatic photographic art. These techniques have been around for awhile, but I haven’t seen them used much in IPO photography. So, a new challenge. If you take up the challenge before my next post, please contact me. I would love to talk with you about your experiences and what you’re discovering.

It may be March before I can post again. As always, I appreciate your support, patience with my wacky schedule and your encouragement. I am so pleased with how the Art of Schutzhund Photography has progressed these past years and look forward to many new adventures!

Happy Shooting!

BJ Spanos

As I’ve been teasing the past few weeks on Facebook and Twitter, I am pleased to announce the launch of BJ Spanos Ink Photography, featuring:

  • Dog Sports – Photographing Dogs in Action – Playing, Competing, Training
  • Smug Mutts – Creating Memorable Photos and Artwork of Your Pet at Reasonable Prices
  • Fine Art – Photographs, Collages, Custom Photo Editing, Hand-Made Cards and Books

The website is also accessible via bjspanos.com.  Please stop by when you get a moment. It is definitely a work in progress, but I am open for business. If you are in the Atlanta area, give me a call. I would very pleased to work with you.  Also, I am happy to travel to photograph pets and/or working dogs and their handlers one-on-one or at trials, although I am not available as an event photographer.

Which brings me to some changes on the BJ Spanos Ink website. I also am pleased to announce that the Sport of Schutzhund: A Photographic Essay book is nearly SOLD OUT. I have a few more cases left (less than 10), but since the stock is almost gone, I have removed the Art of Schutzhund Photography section from the BJ Spanos Ink website. That part of the site now features BJ Spanos Ink Photography, as noted above. You can still order single copies from Amazon or from Leerburg. The special offer for a box of books for working dogs and Schutzhund clubs is still open as long as supplies last. The gallery of Schutzhund photographs that once resided on the Art of Schutzhund Photography site has been retired. Thank you to the photographers who graciously allowed me to include their pictures in this gallery. I will be posting a collection of my own Schutzhund pictures on the BJ Spanos Ink Photography site, as time permits.

Please be assured that my dedication to the Art of Schutzhund Photography remains as strong as ever. And, I fully intend to pen more posts to this blog on what hopefully will be a more regular basis. Thank you for your encouragement and visits. May this fall bring us all opportunities to grab some great shots of the dogs we love and admire!

Hello!  It has been a very busy August and early September. As a result, I have had precious little time to blog. I hope to have some new posts up soon. One of the projects that has kept me busy is BJ Spanos Ink Photography, which will officially launch next weekend. I’ll have more to say about it then. . I am looking forward to cooler fall temps and colors, which always make for wonderful photo backdrops. Until next time, thank you for patience and understanding as I work through this hectic period – and thank you for visiting!
