During the first few weeks of the project, Andy has been shooting video along side me for inclusion in the blog, here is the first instalment. We will be posting short video's like this every 10 days to give you a behind the scenes look at what goes on during the image creation. Hope you like it.

I have been back in France for just over a week and I am chomping at the bit to get back to New York to continue shooting for The New York Dog Project. Though I am enjoying the peace and quiet of rural life in the South of France, it was so wonderful to be amongst the hustle and bustle of life in The Big Apple. Each day we are receiving more and more emails from dog owners keen to give their loyal companions the chance of fame amongst the pages of the book, a big thanks to everyone that is spreading the word! The characters and stories we are receiving are adorable, and full of inspiration, which is making my mind boggle with ideas....... thank goodness we are now heading back sooner, planning to land on New York soil in mid April, YAY!!!

We are into our third week of being back in NYC and we are loving it. Life is a far cry from the quiet relaxing lifestyle we lead living in our small rural village in the South of France, but the change is a welcome one! Spring is in full bloom, giving the city a fresh and vibrant feel. Dogs and owners are out in force and I am meeting some wonderful new canine characters to add to my list of dogs to photograph for The New York Dog book.
