Below a little note from the photographer of the book Little Kids and their Big Dogs. His name is Andy Seliverstoff, and is from St.Petersburg, Russia. The book is currently being published in the United States by Revodana Publishing.
My name is Andy and I started photography some years ago. I have always loved photography but 4 years ago I decided to take it more seriously and now I feel I can't live without it!! I love to photograph dogs and I focus completly on my dog photography. I try to improve my photo's every time I take a photo. I believe you never stop learning and there is so very much to learn en discover. In my photography I try to bring my own emotions and interpretation of the moment back in my photo's. Hoping the viewer will see what I've seen, feel what I felt taking the photo. I always take plenty of time with the dog who's in front of my camera so I get to know the personality of my dog model the best I can. The personality and the character is unique for every individual dog. The human aspects we ofter reconize in our dogs are, among other things, what makes us feel so close to them. And it is this aspect I try to express in my photograhy.
My passion is photographing dogs of all kind but I have a special love for the Great Danes.
They touch me emotionally and I just can't get enough photo's of them! I hope people appreciate and like my photography and will enjoy my work as much as I do creating the photo's!!
