PHOTOS: Dogs Shaking Off Water

 A wet, shaking dog may be a common sight for pet lovers, but few have ever seen wet dogs captured quite like this. Portland, Oregon based photographer Carli Davidson shares with us these pictures of dogs shaking and making some pretty interesting faces.

Davidson, who has worked in both commercial and documentary photography, also has almost a decade of experience as an animal caretaker and trainer, according to her website. Her work has been featured in publications in both the U.S. and internationally, including The Atlantic, The Village Voice and The Times (UK).

Carli Davidson is both an internationally recognized award winning photographer and an experienced animal trainer and caretaker. She is able to capture the innate personalities of her subjects using her professional understanding of animal behavior. She is a freelance photographer for the Oregon Zoo, and works regularly with domestic animals both commercially and personally for her fine art projects.

Carli spends much of her shoots rolling on the ground with her subject, getting in their skin as much as possible and encouraging them to open up to the camera. Her history working at the Oregon Zoo an well as nature preserves and animal rescues has given her the opportunity to care for everything from chimpanzees to rats. She shares her home with a dogue de Bordeaux named Norbert and a small, incredibly loud black cat named Yushi.

Her photography has been featured in national and international news publications, photography magazines, and websites, including the Vanity Fair, The New York Times, BBC, Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Photo District News and ABC World News.

Carli has taught for the Newspace Center for Photography, and The Oregon Zoo, and has spoken at numerous institutions including The Art Institute, and The Evergreen State College.
