The Pointers and how we got this $million shot

The Pointers

German Shorthaired Pointers

Gretchen is a 6 year old German Shorthaired Pointer. Kaarine and Hanz are her offspring 4 and 3 years old respectively. Gretchen is a well-adjusted confident dog, after all she has doting humans and her kids with her where ever she goes. Karrine is clever, protective and always willing-to please. She has tireless energy and is a great match for her brother Hanz. They love to run and chase each other, wrestle and play-fight for hours in the yard. Hanz, now he takes life less seriously than his mother and sister, opting for frequent bursts of playful energy.

Perfectly trained as Pointers you should see all 3 go on point when a cat wanders into view, they fairly quiver but won’t go move a muscle unless commanded. It’s a phenomenon to behold.

Try to stop Hanz marking his territory though and it a different thing, even if it’s in a studio, guess who’s studio?

So how did we get that shot in the center of the collage?

A shot of which I'm very proud

Iron discipline from the humans, a perfectly placed revolving air vent in the studio ceiling and a little help from the sun god that broke though at the perfect moment creating what we can only believe was a flutter that sufficiently resembled a bird in flight that it commanded absolute attention for the couple of seconds it took to get the shot.

Nailed it, don’t you agree?
