COLORFUR: The Photography Project About The Colorful World Of Dogs
Dogs are amazing creatures, and man’s best friend - competing alongside us in dog sports, leading us when our sight has abandoned us, comforting us when we are sick.
They are also beautiful and spectacularly diverse in their makeup. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors! From black to white, red to blue, yellow to brown, dogs come in so many striking colors.
Truth be told, animals become part of the family to those that take them in. I've noticed how each of them have such unique personalities.
This past year, I met Darcy at the WPPI photography conference. He is an award winning pet photographer and I've seen his work before. We were chatting and I told him about an idea I had!
I told him we should photograph a wide range of breeds, and showcase them on colorful backdrops that match their coats. It would highlight their personalities and show them off in a colorful way. The purpose was to bring more attention and celebrate the diversity and beauty of many different dogs. Hence, "COLORFUR" was born.
After months of work, I'm thrilled to announce my personal project (and book) in collaboration with photographer Darcy Evans!
The more we told people about it, the more people told us they'd love to see it happen.
Over the next few months he photographed around 40 different dogs and I collaborated with him to make them as visually beautiful as possible using the base coat as inspiration.
Below, you'll find some of the images from our personal project!

We'd really love your support in getting it funded, so we can share these with everyone. If you are, or know of a dog owner, we'd love your support in sharing this project with them. There's also greeting cards and other items available too.
