"Shh! Stubborn Hound!" pix©shevaun by 

The tribute to a gorgeous Basset Hound (Fred) who was my wonderful companion for 9 years.

Untouched work shot on Nikon D60 (a cheap film SLR) with two studio lights

I have a studio in New Farm Brisbane and love shhooting Dogs and their owners!

Initially this image was to pay homage to the shot of the bassett with his ears blowing in front of a fan… This shot captured more of Fred’s personality – he liked the breeze but it wasnt letting it move him or those huge heavy ears (btw he weighed 30kgs!)

Shevaun Steffens or ‘Shhevaun’ as she is know professionally, started taking pictures at age 5 and won her first award of first prize at the local fair with a picture of her dog dressed up in pajamas. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Thanx – that was Fred, the best friend a girl could ever wish for, unfortunately he passed away earlier this year but I will always have great memories and this timeless untouched negative! He was such a character and a great model!

    Superb photo! I Iove Bassets and this is a great portrayal of the breed. I too had a ‘Fred’, and a few since him. Fred and Angel, Bogie and Bacall, now Barkley all Basset Hounds.
