Westminster Dog Show By Alan Winslow

If you follow our Instagram @brklyncentral then you know that our crew here at BKC are all MAJOR dog lovers.  So when we saw our instructor Alan Winslow's photos for ELLE online that he shot for the 140th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, we were pumped.  We picked out our favorites shots from the story along with snippets of their beauty routines.  Catch the full story on their website here.  Enjoy!

A Pup-ular New Photo Trend?

At BKC, we love dogs. Dumbo is arguably the best spot in Brooklyn to puppy watch, so we enjoy taking breaks by the waterfront, where you can spot furry friends left and right.  Naturally, this article on Quartz caught our eye.  

We're usually the ones snapping puppy pics; we even have an #IdPetThat hashtag on our Instagram.  But what if the tables turned, and we had a chance to see from a dog's-eye view?  That curiosity led Nikon to create a special camera mount and setup for a dog to wear that captures a photo every time the dog's heart rate spikes.  Perhaps these snaps won't be works of art, but they'll definitely be works of bark.  Sounds like a good plan to us.
