My dog, Bizzy, is such a good sport. As the four-legged companion of a professional pet photographer he endures a lot of impromptu modeling gigs that generally involve costumes he'd probably prefer to pee on than wear. This Halloween was no exception and I put poor Biz through more than usual because, I couldn't (and [...]
Sometimes I wonder if Bizzy likes being with a pet photographer because, honestly, I make him do some fairly ridiculous things. That said, he's pretty compliant and definitely enjoys the payment (Trader Joe's cheese sticks). So, Happy Easter from Mark Rogers Photography and Bizzy.

That said, my wise and clever wife recently planted the suggestion of reconfiguring our backyard into an outdoor studio that I could invite clients to. Wow, talk about your great ideas. Only one problem [...]
Apologies to all my regular readers for the infrequent posting these past few weeks. Between a bunch of private sessions, My Mutt shoots, weddings (we've had a big uptick in those here in San Francisco since the state supreme court ruling) and my now-regular gig on Dogster's blog I've barely had enough time to download [...]
