Insiders know that shelter pups make the best pets, but often it is difficult to see their personalities as you browse the cages at a shelter. Guinnevere Shuster's beautiful pictures demonstrate the vibrant personalities of a wide variety of dogs at the Humane Society of Utah. Each page holds four candid pictures of an adoptable pup. Often hilarious or stunningly cute, Shushter's pictures show dogs filled with hopeful energy, ready to have a new chance at a happy life. There is even a section of pictures at the end where some of the dogs who were adopted are shown with their new families.
Dog pictures that are adorable and funny and stories with happy endings - what more could a dog lover ask for in a photo book? I absolutely loved Shelter Dogs in a Photo Booth. It is a book guaranteed to make any dog lover smile.
I received a copy of Shelter Dogs in a Photo Booth from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
Man's best friend! What better way to showcase adoptable dogs than by letting their true personalities shine in a photo booth! In the tradition of the best-selling dog photography book, Underwater Dogs, Shelter Dogs in a Photo Booth wins the heart of all dog lovers.
Often seen as sad, rejected, and behind cold metal bars, it's no wonder people would avoid images of shelter dogs awaiting forever homes. From talented photographer (and now public figure and adoption champion) Guinnivere Shuster comes Shelter Dogs in a Photo Booth, a guaranteed-to-make-you-smile photo book featuring shelter dogs in a brand-new light. Get ready to see the cutest canine portraits you've ever seen! Guinnevere's fantastic photos went viral and have been featured on websites, in magazines, and on television programs all over the world: Good Morning America, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, The Huffington Post, Time, The Daily Mail . . . even celebrities have gotten in on the action: Amy Poehler, Cesar Millan, and Zooey Deschanel have made statements and posts declaring their love of Guinnevere's work. After the adorable and up-for-adoption photos of these furry friends were seen and enjoyed by millions, adoption rates at Utah's Humane Society skyrocketed.
The book features 100 dog photo booth style photographs, each accompanied by a short story about the dog's personality, how the dog ended up in the shelter, and the adoption date. A follow-up will conclude the book, with photos of some of them with their new families.
