Flinn, my Spanish Waterdog
In 2007, my Spanish Waterdog Flinn came into my life. As a puppy, he followed his hunting instincts and became particularly fond of Frisbees, which he jumped to fetch without caring how he would ever get back down. If I let him, he would go after anything, jump as high as he possibly could. He knew no boundaries. So he began to spend a half day with me in the studio chasing Frisbees as I tried to capture his jumps on film. Soon it became apparent that my technical approach wasn't viable, not for him nor any other dog.
