Landon Nordeman, shooting for the New Yorker, spent some one-on-one time with fabulous prized canines, gathered at the Pennsylvania Hotel for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in February 2013. The goal of this two-day project was to photograph the personality of the dogs. Technically it was challenging because once you take a dog off a leash, no matter how trained they are, they can be very unpredictable. Nordeman said, “My assistants used dog toys and treats to try and get the dogs to sit still and look at the camera, which was easier said than done.” See Ralph pull a little ‘tude on this behind-the-scenes video.
