My first project involved this beautifully trained, happy, yellow lab and a classic truck. King is that one in a million dog, his dad’s heart dog and this truck was everything I had envisioned too. Even down to its color.

I’ve signed up for a 6 month challenge with other dog photographers around the world through Unleashed Education called Embark. Every two weeks we are given a topic and we have to come up with a vision, create a photo, and submit an entry.

The entries are judged and a Top 20 and Top 10 list are selected.

If this sounds familiar, last year I participated in “Emerge” the first challenge launched by Unleashed Education. It was harder than I thought it would be and I learned a lot; maybe more about myself than about photography.

So I’m giving it another go, this time with a different perspective.

My goals for the next 6 months with the challenges are to:

  1. Have fun

  2. Create a concept or vision I’ve not tried before

  3. Learn from the feedback, not only on my photos but the other photographer’s photos

  4. Support the other photographers in the group with my comments and feedback. Maybe even make a few new photographer friends.

  5. Maybe not be so hard on myself if I don’t create judge worthy work every time.

Our first topic of the Emerge Challenge was “Framed.”

It is winter in Charlotte. Everything is pretty brown and lifeless so I decided to create an urban photo. I had the idea of finding a dog and a cool car and taking photos of the dog sitting in the driver’s seat, framed by the window.
