40 Drool-worthy Dog Photographs by Famed Photographer, Mark J. Asher

The images--sweet, silly, and emotive--reveal the innocence and beauty of dogs and why we love them. Snapped by famed pet photographer Mark J. Asher (Old Friends), Greatest Clicks spans a ten-year career, and includes a behind-the-lens story for each dog captured in the book.

Author Bio:
 Mark J. Asher is the author of several dog photography books, including the best-seller Old Friends. The Humane Society of the United States described Old Friends this way: "These animals jump from the pages, warm the heart, and inspire the soul."

Humphrey Was Here began a new direction in Mark's career. The deeply personal memoir details the loss of his beloved German Shepherd/Chow mix. Best Friends Magazine highly recommended the work by saying, "The honesty and wisdom that grace this book will serve as a balm for others coping with their own pain."

Always interested in new creative outlets, Mark has recently released two dog photography eBooks. The first, Greatest Clicks, features forty of his favorite images along with a brief recollection of each. The newest one, Who's That Dog?, is a unique and fun presentation of extraordinary rescue dogs.

In addition to his dog books, Mark is the author of Fascinating Facts About Famous Musicians and Things To Do While Avoiding Things To Do.


 My Opinion:
A fun and interesting view through the lens of a dog lover. Mark J. Asher produces some of the most beautiful shots I have seen and to make it sweeter, you get the back-story with each photograph. Some of the photos really hit home after reading the paragraph that accompanies it. 
I love dogs, that'll never change, but I love how Mark J. Asher brought out the character of each one. That's what makes this book not only unique, but highly entertaining as well.

5/5


I leave you with a shot of my two furbabies.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.
