Impossible Project features Impossible Dog Portraits

I truly believe that Thanksgiving is a time to pick your head up and be grateful. Maybe it has less to do with the historical event than simply a personal check-in, but either way I have a lot to feel grateful for this year. I have a great community of friends, photog associates, fellow artists, responsible dog owners and advocates, clients and supporters, and an amazing family. Oh, and the best tiny dog. I wake up everyday and do what I love most in a professional setting, watch my clients feel joy and appreciation when they unwrap their final prints, and take a professional step forward every single day. I have people I care about, and projects that inspire me. For all of this, I am grateful. In preparation for a fun project I am excited about (and so grateful for), I spent some time going through my catalogue of instant dog portraits taken on Impossible Project film. The Impossible Project recently began feauring some of their favorite instant photographers around the world on their website, along with a photo feature and interview (called the '8 Exposures' series). After following this great new series on their blog I was so surprised to get an email from their New York marketing director inviting me to participate. Emails like that really brighten up your day.

So, here are a few favorite Impossible Dog Portraits that won't be featured on the Impossible Project '8 Exposures' feature, but that I truly love.

CHOCOLATE//BAY AREA'S BEST DOG PHOTOGRAPHER JESSE FREIDIN

I always feel blessed that I can continue being true to my roots as an artist, and maintain momentum as a business. I've never sacrificed my style or loyalty to analog photography, and now more than ever I am seeing this dedication being returned to me. And it's pretty exciting. I've got a lot of instant projects on the horizon: The Impossible Dog Portrait seminar with The Impossible Project in New York on May 25th, my Instant Doggie Photobooth which I'll be travelling with this summer on Cape Cod/New York/etc, and my continuing Instant Dog Portrait series with the incredible PZ600 instant film from the Impossible Project. In order to center myself a bit and prepare for all these huge upcoming instant projects, I decided to spend an afternoon in the studio with 2 of my favorite subjects and a few favorite instant cameras. For this special afternoon I decided to pull one of my last rare packs of original stock Polaroid film from my vegetbale drawer (I have 2, so don't worry. I eat my veggies). This pack (Polaroid Chocolate film) was given to me by The Impossible Project over a year ago, when we first started getting to know each other. I had mentioned my instense love for Polaroid, my love for dogs, and my curiosity of Lady Gaga becoming the Creative Director fo the newly revamped Polaroid corporation. As a creative challenge, a very nice lady at The Impossible Project NY headquarters sent me 2 rare packs of Polaroid film- for me to create some wacky Lady Gaga dog portraits. What a silly idea. A few weeks later Doggie Gaga had taken over the world. But I never ended up using the film The Impossible Project sent me - they had sent me a sepia and chocolate toned film- which I had never used before (I decided last minute to go with the dreamy T669, which I knew like the back of my hand). I stored those 2 packs in my fridge for the past year, and pulled them out last night. And was TOTALLY blown away.
