Dog Photographer Erin Vey bio picture

Meet Erin Vey

I am a dog lover first.

A photographer second.

By some random chance of fate, I was able to combine the two loves into the coolest job ever: A Dog Photographer

I grew up in a family where dogs were always an integral part of our lives and most importantly, members of the family. Most of my childhood was spent with various Basset Hounds of the lovable but extremely stubborn variety. We never had less than 2 at any given time, sometimes 3, and the occasional stray that one of us would bring home for a visit.

After a short stint doing portrait work, which I still love, I realized my true calling is capturing the essence and personality of dogs. Upon reflection, I feel that my time doing portrait work was not wasted. Because of it, my experience with portrait work flows beautifully into working with people and their dogs.

My husband and I are owned by the fabulous Miss Gracie, a 5 year old Great Dane who brings energy and life into our house. You’ll see her around here a lot, she loves having her portrait taken (at least I like to think so).  She is a complete Diva and if you stick around long enough, you'll know what I'm talking about!

What an amazing adventure this has been so far. I’m so glad you are here experiencing it with me.

Ferry at F/1.4

While on the ferry a few days ago, I decided to do a small personal project. I walked around the ferry with my 50 1.4 and forced myself to stay at an aperture of 1.4 (Manually, of course). It was a really fun project. All these happened in just 15 minutes. Here’s what I saw.

So a few weeks ago I posted something about a future mentorship program. I set up an email address just for this program and had it set to forward to my gmail. Apparently that didn’t work. After a few emails from some folks telling me that they had signed up, it dawned on me. The...
