I did my first photo shoot last Saturday for my local hardware store. One of their attractions for the kids was Aslan, ‘the’ Dulux Dog instore. Kids had their chance to get a photo taken with him. I was surprised by the amount of people that turned up to get their photo taken; over 200. It was a relentless but fun day and I was getting a little bit worried that I’d run out of space on my 2 memory cards. But all was okay in the end. Here’s a few pictures of the start attracion- Aslan.
The Old English Sheepdog is the brand mascot for Dulux paint. The dog was first introduced in advertising campaigns in 1961. Since then they have been a constant and highly popular feature of Dulux television and print adverts wherever the paint is sold. So much so, that many people in those markets refer to the breed as a ‘Dulux dog’ rather than a Sheepdog.
I was at the Galway Greyhound track last night. It”s very hard to get a good shot of the dogs (they”re so quick and I didn’t have a fast zoom lens). These are my best shots from the evening. I’ll go back again once I have an (expensive) fast zoom (70-200 f2.8 hopefully)
