MSGDA NAHRA Test – by Alaska Dog Photographer

These dogs are absolutely UH-MAZING!! And WATER SHOTS, my absolute FAVORITE!! I was the photographer for the Midnight Sun Gun Dog Association– NAHRA test here in Alaska.  As a dog photographer, I love capturing the drive, focus and spirit of the hunting dogs. I, of course, made certain to capture the water test portion. And wow, these dogs do it with style! The dogs all did wonderful and I was surrounded by so many great dogs with enormous drive, dedication and love for what they do. I had a blast!!

Midnight Sun Gun Dog Association is truly an amazing organization. Their mission is to help hunters develop better hunting dogs through training and testing. They encourage family involvement in all of their retriever events. If you are looking for a organization that is dedicated to hunters and their hunting retrievers, I highly recommend you become a member of Midnight Sun Gun Dog Association.

Alaska Hunting Dogs

I had the pleasure of spending another day with some amazing dogs and handlers. It is so exciting and heartwarming to see these dogs doing what they love. Their spirit, determination and passion is truly incredible! I look forward in being part of their incredible journey throughout the season. I love being a dog photographer in Alaska! The hunting dog spirit is truly alive in Alaska!

A huge shout out to Midnight Sun Gun Dog Association and Baron, at Team Wetland Retrievers for the wonderful work you do for the dogs, handlers and the gun dog sport. Despite the clouds and sprinkles, a great time was had by all! These are just a few of the photos.

Midnight Sun Gun Dog Association is a non-profit organization and a member of the The North American Hunting Retriever Association (NAHRA). They are dedicated to hunters and their hunting retrievers. If you are interested in the gun dog sport and spending quality time with you working dog breed, I highly recommend Midnight Sun Gun Dog Association (MSGDA).  Belonging to MSGDA is a great way to meet people who love hunting dogs and love to hunt; to share training techniques and tips with other members while enjoying the great Alaska outdoors; and to spend time with your favorite hunting companion. Whether you are new to retriever training or an old hand at it, MSGDA has something to offer to everyone.  If you are a dog lover and support the hunting dog sport, I hope you will consider making an in-kind donation to such a worthwhile organization or become a member.

Welcome to The Journey Photography – Alaska Dog Photographer

 

Welcome to the Journey Photography. My name is Cris and I am a dog photographer based in Alaska.  My goal as a photographer is to capture the very essence of the dog’s spirit and personality, as well as the special bond between them and their family.  I specialize in actions shots, portraits, lifestyle and themed sessions (PAWternity, birthday, announcements and more). 

I have had a lifelong journey surrounded by dogs and my love for them runs deep. If you’ve found your way here then I already know we share a love for dogs. So get comfy, kick up your feet, snuggle with your furry friend and take a look around. Check out my photo galleries featuring some of the amazing dogs I have photographed and see my photography style. Scroll down to see recent blogs and read a few stories of some super awesome dogs. You are sure to smile along the way.

From paws up action shots to sentimental portraits, as well as fun and creative themed session, the on location basic package offers it all and is sure to capture the unique spirit of your dog. I also offer a special package for the faithful senior dogs in your life, “Golden Heart, Grey Muzzle” and a special puppy package with the “Grow With Me” sessions.  Check out my pricing and services section for details.

If you are interested in professional portraits or wall art of your beloved fur family, let’s talk about the amazing images we can create together of the  four paw  love in your life.  Photographs that you will treasure for a life time.  Contact me for details or for special requests.
