Landon Nordeman, shooting for the New Yorker, spent some one-on-one time with fabulous prized canines, gathered at the Pennsylvania Hotel for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in February 2013. The goal of this two-day project was to photograph the personality of the dogs. Technically it was challenging because once you take a dog off a leash, no matter how trained they are, they can be very unpredictable. Nordeman said, “My assistants used dog toys and treats to try and get the dogs to sit still and look at the camera, which was easier said than done.” See Ralph pull a little ‘tude on this behind-the-scenes video.
Today, April 11th, is National Pet Day, founded by Colleen Paige, and is sponsored by the Animal Miracle Foundation & Network. Give your pet a little extra love today.

Austin-based food and lifestyle photographer, Jody Horton, has had the awesome opportunity to photograph a few cookbooks in his day. The first is “Afield: A Chef’s Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and Fish” by Jesse Griffiths (Welcome, 2012) which was recently nominated as a finalist by the James Beard Foundation Awards committee in the Cookbooks: Single Subject category. Kudos to Horton for making such lovely images out of butchered wild game. His second cookbook, “Smoke: New Firewood Cooking” by Tim Byres (Rizzoli, 2013) will be released April 30.
Horton says that shooting editorial and commercial work rarely allows more than a handful days on a subject. “In contrast, shooting cookbooks has given me the opportunity to work on projects that are much broader in scope and richer in detail – often over many weeks or months.” Buy a copy of “Afield” here. You never know when you’ll have a to make Crappie Croquettes or Bad-Day Dove Risotto.

Jordan Baumgarten‘s project “Average Americans of the Right Type” is an investigation of class and masculinity within the subculture of American Hunters. The project was made over the course of a year in a variety of places: New England, Upstate New York, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. During this time, Jordan learned how to hunt, allowing him to photograph this world as a participant, giving him an insider’s perspective into this community of men.
Baumgarten is a winner in the Hearst 8×10 Biennial. His work, along with the other Hearst Biennial winners will be on on display at the Hearst tower in New York City April 2nd through August 31st.

Given their star-studded lineup, it’s hardly a stretch to think that A.J. Ellis and the Dodgers could run away with the NL West.

Major League Baseball’s opening night is Sunday, March 31st, Rangers vs. Astros. ESPN the Magazine’s MLB Preview 2013 issue features photographer John Huet‘s total-access shoot at the Arizona spring training camps of the Angels and Dodgers. Huet spent 4 days shooting each team’s workouts, an experience that went better after “Picture Day,” when he created an assembly line of photographer/set-ups to shoot 70 Angels and 68 Dodgers within a 2-hour period each (translation: less than 2 minutes per player). Getting brief one-on-one time instantly made the players more comfortable, Huet says, and eased his access as he roamed the camps. For more, follow ESPN the Magazine on Twitter @espnmag.
