Puzzle the search dog

by Daniel March. 30, 2008 7914 views

Some photos from my first ever magazine shoot. My university's journalism department needed photos to accompany an article about this woman and her search dog, Puzzle. Puzzle has been trained to search by scent for cadavers, abductees, and other missing people/objects and his owner, Susannah Charleson, has trained Puzzle since the age of 10 weeks(!) They met me at a park in Dallas and sent Puzzle on some finds. A couple of times, I went and hid, and then Puzzle had to find me – hide-and-go-seek with a dog who plays better than anybody I've ever met! The last shot was taken as I hid in a ditch. I must say, Puzzle is the most willing and cooperative subject I've ever had the pleasure of shooting.

Love Puzzle's expression in # 3, and the sense of "found you!" in # 9.

I have been censored. My blog was put on "Friends only", unavailable to the general public and other bloggers without much explanations.
Censorship because I posted a photo with a tit showing? Or censorship because of what I say...? Where is the world going if we can't post pictures of tasteful bodies?

#1 and #6 are the best but the last one is fun. He looks like a lion in it.

Lucky you to doing this. Are you studying now to become a photojournalist or journalist?
