Wonderfully Witty Dog Portraits by Ron Schmidt

11 Sep

I am a massive dog lover, so these portraits of dogs really caught my funny bone. Ron Schmidt has captured the humour within dogs. I love what he has done. It brings a smile to your face even if your having a down day.

“Though we’ve seen a lot of dog portraits in our time (see herehere and here) these might just take the cake as the most creative ever.

Ron Schmidt is the person behind the company Loose Leashes, an online shop where he sells funny prints of our furry friends in wonderfully witty scenarios. Dog person or not, you can’t help but fall in love with these photos.

As he told Dogster, “All the images represent the freedom that a dog would have without someone holding its leash. These are the things dogs would do if no one was around and they had absolute freedom.”

Though his past experience is in fashion and celebrity photography, Schmidt found his true calling by accident. After branching out on his own to pursue commercial photography, he found his niche when, one day, he decided to design a creative Christmas card for his family, friends and clients. Featuring his yellow lab Indy, the card didn’t just show her pose in a traditional way, he had her carry a tree on her back. “It was a fun, conceptual image that was a big hit with everyone who saw it. Since I love dogs and photography, this worked out really well.”

While looking through these photos, make sure to spot out how each one is labeled. Working with his wife, he comes up with the dogs’ clever and (very) fitting names. Now, here are 20 of our favorites. (The top one has been added to our board Cute and Cuddly on Pinterest.)”
