Each year the Vancouver Police Department’s K9 Unit responds to more than 10,000 service calls ranging from criminal apprehension to explosives detection. Somehow they still find time to release a calendar to raise money for The BC Children’s Hospital and the BC Cancer Foundation.It fills us great pride to present the images from our collaboration with them on the 2019 edition.As one of four photographers involved, we were given three months to showcase the dogs, and chose to show them on the job with their handlers.

Commercial portrait photographers with four eyes, two heads, and one unimaginatively named company. Working as a collaborative team since 2008, their approach is heavy on the preproduction and planning, so that once the shot day roles around they can use all their time and energy to work with the subjects.
