BUDDHABARK'S WONDERPARK//FINE ART DOG PHOTOGRAPHER JESSE FREIDIN

This weekend I was a featured guest at BuddhaBark's second amazing celebrity/canine event in Hollywood. It was sunny, it was full of amazing talented faces (and dogs), and I had so much fun talking to everyone about my work. People told me stories of their aging dogs, of their devotion to their animal companions, of their families and producers and famous friends who would "die to have photographs like these." I met dog lovers, cat lovers, horse lovers, and one woman with a few monkeys, an iguana, and a pack of seven dogs. Wow. The doggie fashion show and agility demonstrations were incredible, and it was an all-around wonderful event to be part of. Below are some fun shots (taken by my supertastic assistant, DC) of the weekend:

I love meeting other photographers. This guy and I talked shop about the beauty of film, his years as a professional photographer, shooting in old coal mines with transparency film, and, of course, his love for his canines.

WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD//FINE ART DOG PHOTOGRAPHER JESSE FREIDIN

Well, we've arrived. Again. It's my third trip to Los Angeles this year, and so far things are going swimmingly. In preparation for the long, busy week ahead, my assistant and I took a trip up to the Hollywood sign. I've always wanted to hike up there, touch the sign, photograph the sign, get close to that mysterious, historic icon. Up close and personal it's just like any other sign. Kind of big, kind of dirty, kind of hard to photograph. But, it was a great way to get the creative juices flowing.

Tomorrow we get all cleaned up and head to BuddhaBark's Wonderpark, in celebration of the MTV Movie Awards. It's going to be an amazing weekend of meeting some big names in Hollywood, introducing them to my photography, and just getting a chance to chat a bit, one on one. I've got some great marketing materials, great big prints, and a great team behind me for this event, and I can't wait to knock the socks off of LA.

And who's that funny little fellow riding shotgun in my car? He's flat, he's cute..... must be Flat Brutus! Much more on Flat Brutus coming up, but if you're curious - check out his website.
