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.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
