…you may have seen this photo of Dwellephant and me at the back of the book:
It’s our “about the author and illustrator” image. It was taken by our good friend (and also great photographer) Kat Berger. You can visit her website here.
I recently came across the disc of images from that photo shoot, and as I was flipping through the photos I remembered how hard it was for us to pick a favorite. So rather than let these images get buried in a CD booklet for the next fifty years or so (if I’m lucky), I’ve decided to share a few of them with you.
Neither Dwellephant nor I had any specific goal going into this shoot, other than the idea that we wanted my dog, Mr. Fabulous, in the photo with us. Out of the fifty-plus images that Kat shot, only three of them were “jumping” shots; of those three, I was fully in the air in only one of them.
The image above is the Dwellephant-doctored photo we used for the book. The following photo is the original before Dwellephant got his hands on it:
And here are a few of the more interesting shots from the shoot. Click on each image to view a larger version.
Thanks again to Kat for doing the shoot! I can’t believe that was over a year ago.
