Astro was a remarkable dog – my friend, companion and co-conspirator for 10 1/2 years.

He was with me when I began my photography business and was a willing model on many occasions as I tried new photographic techniques and lighting set-ups. And he accompanied me in the field on many of my travels and adventures shooting in the great outdoors. Always by my side and always looking out for me, we shared an uncommon bond and a wonderful time together.

Astro enjoyed a great life, but a dog’s life is much too short.

Astro passed away on December 25, 2012. He is missed tremendously and I think of him every day. Fortunately, I have thousands of photographs to remember him…
