Carli Davidson: ‘Shake’ Dog Portraits

Carli Davidson’s portfolio is full of beautiful and unusual photograph of animals, but my favourite by far is her series entitled ‘Shake’ which features dogs shaking off water. Using a fast shutter speed, she is able to capture the creatures’ mid-shake, the movement causing distorted faces and wild hair.

Not only is she a wonderful photographer, but also an experienced animal trainer, and it is this knowledge of her subjects and their personalities and behaviour that enables such fantastic photography.

I find something comical about the series, perhaps because of the familiarity of a household pet, and my own amusing memories of dogs shaking themselves dry. Typically, the border collies are my favourite…
