I recently started using Instagram and discovered an amazing photographer, Elias Weiss Freidman, aka The Dogist. I’m pretty sure he has one of the coolest jobs ever! The Dogist differs from most pet photographer. Typically Elias doesn’t know who he’ll photograph on any given day. Instead he finds dogs out and about and photographs them on the spot.
If you have Instagram, you’ll want to follow the Dogist on that. He updates frequently and its wonderful to see the variety of dogs and locations he photographs.
From Elias: “I like to say that I have ‘all the dogs’, but I currently don’t own one myself yet. I will when I have the resources to do so.”
Elias actively helps shelter dogs find homes. In addition to his project Give A Dog a Bone, he has also recently collaborated with Mrs. Sizzle to get some awesome dogs adopted.
Be sure to follow The Dogist on Facebook!
