Travis Patenaude has never met a dog he didn’t like. Based upon his photographs, I would say that feeling is mutual. I like to think of him as the Dogfather!
He is an Internationally renowned dog photographer of Stink-Eye Photography who creates unique portraits that foster an emotional connection between the subject and the viewer. He believes emotions and feelings are a vital part of telling stories and has to be put in a form that touches the hearts of people to evoke empathy and to have the viewer want to learn more about the dogs.
Travis is an advocate for animal rescue and animal rights, in particular, raising awareness for the plight of the hunting dogs of Spain. He has won international awards and has been published across international print, online media, and magazines.
