Portland-based photographer Carli Davidson uses a high-speed camera to capture those hilariously awesome freeze-frame shots of dogs in mid-shake. She just published a collection of these delightful photos as a book entitled Shake.
The amusing portraits seem to transform ordinary pets into strangely distorted animals right out of a cartoon. Known for her candid and heartfelt portraits of pets and wildlife, Davidson first began photographing animals while working with the animal care team at the Oregon Zoo. Shake was partially inspired by her own dog Norbert whose drool she regularly scrubs from the walls of her home due to his frequent shaking.
