When I hear “animal photographer” I tend to think of the images that normally grace the pages of things like greeting cards and kitten calendars, certainly not artfully crafted and character driven portraits. However, that’s just what Seth Casteel of Little Friends creates. An animal photographer like none other, his portraits make me forget that I’m looking at animals and make me think instead “what’s going through his mind right now?” And these are dogs we’re talking about.
Just take a look. You’ll see what I mean. You’ll find some portraits on Casteel’s website, but I found his site a bit hard to navigate. If you’re like me, you’ll have better luck on Facebook. (Check out the underwater shots. They’re both awesome and a bit frightening.)
