Everything seemed so parched. I took this series and used a blue filter to give it a unifying mood. All prints are for sale and are printed on archival papers. All images © Miranda Loud 2015.

A Shaggy, Fuzzy and Spiky Christmas Photoshoot! https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2015/12/a-shaggy-fuzzy-and-spiky-christmas-photoshoot One of my favorite things about photographing animals is that they really do bring joy, not only to me with their directness and their playfulness and different personalities, but that they really do bring a lasting joy to their guardians. This was a recent favorite session, just in time for under the tree...

Headshots with Bradley Fugate https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2015/11/headshots-with-bradley-fugate One of the favorite parts of my job as a photographer and videographer is working with artists like Brad who are already so comfortable as performers. I love the collaborative process of bringing out the different facets of each person's personality and giving people time and space to really play. Stay tuned for the short video interview I did with Brad about teaching and his particular passion for making Japanese art song more accessible for students in the U.S.

Sanctuary in the mountains near Fort Collins. I interviewed Michelle Proulx who runs the sanctuary and has a powerful understanding of the wolves. They all have great stories. I will be adding more from her interview in addition to this video which I just finished yesterday. Enjoy!

Gathering these multimedia stories for the project I started a couple of years ago is so heart-affirming for me. I enjoy everything about it - finding the people to interview, meeting them, meeting their animals, taking the photographs and the video, deciding how to hone the story in the audio editing. I hope you enjoy this one!

Casey lives at the foothills of the Rockies and spoke to me about her connection with her new shire stallion William. Casey knows her horses well, but she is especially fond of William, whom she says is so sensitive to her emotions and responds to her therapeutic touch when he is anxious. One of many stories for the One Language Project which explores the common emotional language we share with other species and asks "what would the world be like if humans viewed other species as someones instead of somethings? Can we become better stewards through seeing our commonality?"

It was so fortuitous meeting Amy and Wyatt and staying on their farm while on my trip to Denver for the opening of the One Language Project at the Morris Animal Foundation. Her exuberance about her dog Henry and the story she tells is a powerful example of how animals help us better understand ourselves and how important our bonds with other species can be to the quality of our lives.

When we see ourselves as sharing emotions with other species, the world becomes so much richer and full of other types of knowing.

While I was in Colorado I did six interviews. Here is one about a man and his favorite hawk which he raised since birth.

How fun to hang out with these and many other dogs last week. The dogwalkers at the park are a cool bunch, too, of course. Animal photography is not for the easily-embarrassed. Squeaky toys, dog slobber, camera kisses, it's all part of a day's work.

Haifa and Coal - Two Dogs with a Lot of Soul https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/10/haifa-and-coal---two-dogs-with-a-lot-of-soul Haifa and Coal are rescue dogs who have finally found their forever home with a warm and active family. Haifa was used in breeding in Brazil and Coal was adopted just a few months ago from Big Fluffy Dog Rescue in Tennessee. During the photoshoot, their devotion to their family was so poignant, especially since Haifa is a senior dog. Coal was trying hard to please everyone as we coaxed him with treats to stay still for a few seconds. You can read all about them and their history by their owner who has a blog too. http://whatcouldgo.blogspot.com.br/2014/09/pitch-black-weston-ma.html

Animal Art Show Opening This Friday! https://www.mirandaloudphotography.com/blog/2014/9/animal-art-show-opening-this-friday GeorgeGeorge I'm excited to be included in this Animal Art Exhibit at Belmont Gallery with a few of my animal portraits for sale among so many wonderful artists' works depicting animals in various media.

September 14 @ 8:00 am - October 17 @ 5:00 pm

Wonderfully diverse, thought-provoking, fun exhibit

Animals — from beasts of prey to household pets — have been a staple of artistic expression since cave painting at the very dawn of humanity. Whether as totems, allegory, decoration, or simply for their “fearsome symmetry,” animals have been a presence in the works of history’s greatest masters from DaVinci’s horse studies, through Rousseau’s primitive wildlife, to Picasso’s bull fetish. Yet, the role of animals in art is often overlooked.We have terms for ‘portraits,’ ‘landscapes.’ and ’‘still lives’, but none for art with animal subjects. ‘Animal Art’ gets no respect.

Belmont Gallery of Art opens its tenth anniversary season with a long overdue appreciation of Animals in Art, featuring animal artworks in a variety of media — painting, sculpture, photography collage, fabric art — selected by jurors and veterinarians, Dr. Suzanne Kay and Dr. Dawn Binder, from Belmont’s Cushing Square Veterinary Clinic.

The menagerie is a ‘must-see” for art lovers and animal lovers of all ages. And visitors can help homeless and abused pets at the same time. Ten percent of all sales of artwork will be donated to the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals-Angell to support its mission to find loving families for abandoned and mistreated pets.

Opening Reception: September 19, 5 – 8 pm
Duration of Show: September 14 – October 17. • Hours:  Thursday and Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Sunday 1 – 4 p.m.

Several BAA members are presenting artwork in this exhibit.
