There is a reason why dogs have been likened to humans and it is not just for their looks; the Dog Face portrait series shows that it is because they can exhibit as much personality as a person. From frank stares to big yawns and bigger smiles, the Dog Face series offers adorable closeups of many people's favorite furry animals.
The Dog Face portrait series was shot by Minneapolis-based photographer Barbara O'Brien. Known for her animal and rural lifestyle photography, which has been used in the advertising and publishing industries, O'Brien has perfected her knack of getting exactly what she wants from these precious pets. She reveals, "I personally audition the animals I work with so you will have the best possible talent for your project."
