Canine Collection

Following on from the popularity of “I will not chase the cat” last week, it’s my pleasure to make this canine Print Collection available to you…

…as ever, made with the finest materials modern science can muster to make sumptuous prints that will last more than a lifetime.

I will not chase the cat.

I was surprised to hear some kind words from a new client this morning, specifically citing an ad campaign I shot back in 2002.

It got my cogs turning…

I haven’t looked at the images for years and, I must confess, I was flattered that he’d even remembered them for so long.

The series was for Battersea Dogs Home — a campaign that, like several others, was simply on the back of mailing ‘Finn‘ to a couple of thousand London creatives.

Ringy: “I will not chase the cat.”

At the time, I became slightly pigeon-holed (or dog-kenneled?) as a dog photographer.

I didn’t mind one jot — I still love taking photographs of dogs now. They intrigue me but, believe it or not, I’m not really a dog-lover.

We owned a lurcher once. It didn’t go entirely well…but that’s another story.

Anyway, the images have come up in conversation a few times lately. So, I thought it was about time I took another look, if only for the fond memories.

The campaign was even featured in Lürzer’s Archive (No. 3/02), a roundup of the best ad campaigns from around the globe — a proud moment for a young snapper…
