Almost all of the photos
featured on the Maryland Sled Dog
Adventures LLC's website were taken
by team photographer and sled dog dad,
pictures of dogs, especially working dogs,
poses particular challenges. In most cases,
the photographer needs to travel with
the dog team, whether by dog sled, bicycle,
cross country skis, or on foot. In many
locations, there is only one shooting
angle (down the trail) and only one chance
for the shot. During most trips, Eric
doubles as a handler for the dog sled
team and as a photographer. Add in that
the dogs really like to stop for their
favorite sled dad and photographing the
team becomes particularly challenging.
Eric often serves as a freelance photographer
during dog sledding and other dog related
events. Strangely, it's often easier to
take pictures of other people's dogs than
your own. If you have an event and are
interested in hiring Eric as your photographer,
contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

No, our dogs did not star in
the movie by the same name, but they are
"snow dogs." Northern breeds
such as Siberian huskies, Alaskan huskies,
and mixes love the snow.
