0D0C3253webLast week was my national television debut! I was invited to be a guest on The Social on CTV, to share my tips on Taking Better Photographs of Your Pets. I had such a blast with hosts Traci, Melissa…and the adorable and adoptable puppies from Save Me Rescue who rocked my live photo shoot during Puppy Bowl XLIX. Check out their adorable faces below.

Here is the link to the full written post of my tips and the video segment: Marcia Leeder on The Social – January 29, 2015
Also here’s an extra tip on Facebook: Marcia Leeder Extra Tip

HAPPY UPDATE: All nine of the rescue puppies are in the process of being adopted…even the monkey who whizzed on the field.;-)

Traci perfectly nicknamed this guy Bowie.  0D0C3158web

A few minutes to get the attention of puppies in a new environment with tons of distractions…not prob.;-) 0D0C3174web

 LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE – Gallery Exhibit – Opening May 2015

 

SBCPF_logo_CMYK_300dpi                                                                                                                                                                                                              Let sleeping dogs lie — who wants to rouse ‘em? – Charles Dickens

 

In this evocative collection, animal photographer Marcia Leeder demonstrates a rather literal interpretation of the classic idiom, “let sleeping dogs lie”, featuring dogs at rest.

Marcia believes the experience of watching animals in moments of deep relaxation can inspire the same feelings of peacefulness in each one of us.

While viewing the exhibit, the artist invites you to inhale deeply through your nose, then release that breath in a great big dog sigh.
