Looking through the pages of the colorful and vibrant book Underwater Dogs, one gets the chance to really appreciate the artistry of fame pet photographer Seth Casteel. In today’s world of digital dominance, it’s refreshing to find a collection of quality prints assembled in one book. What makes this book supremely unique is its subjects; dogs photographed underwater chasing a ball.
Guaranteed to make you smile, Underwater Dogs is a simplistically beautiful concept. Casteel is a magician behind the camera as he uses the water in the swimming pools as a natural filter to diffuse the light and make the dogs look angelic. The pictures are a mix of four color processed prints and black and white, and the featured images range from sweet to funny to a little scary at times.
The 132-page book can be found at major online retailors like Barnes & Noble and Amazon, and retails for around $20. It showcases 68 different dogs of varied breeds ensuring there’s a little something for everyone. The book promises to be a great gift to give or get.
A perfect companion to the book is the 2013 Underwater Dogs wall calendar by Willow Creek Press. The 13x10.5 calendar takes some of the best images and allows fans to enjoy them all year round. After seeing Casteel’s images plastered on the Internet and varied talked shows across the globe, now is your chance to bring them homes.
Rufus, my red smooth miniature dachshund, and I have been friends and fans of Casteel for the last 6 years now, and we are thrilled for him and his success. He is a genuinely sweet man, a champion of dog community and a wonderful photographer. I proudly display my very own original Casteel prints of Rufus in my home and look at them daily. Until you're able to schedule your own personal professional photo shoot for your pampered pooch with Casteel, get the book and calendar to tie you over. The book and calendar make great keepsakes for any dog lover.
