Harry Frees is the photographer responsible for these legitimate old time-y portraits of kittens and puppies that you've probably seen somewhere on the internet. He began dressing animals in tiny human costumes all the way back in 1905. You can imagine how hard it must have been to take a clear photo of hyper kittens with a camera back then! You can read more about his story over here.
Watch how Grizzler became a canine photographer with Nikon's help. With a device developed to turn emotions into photographs, see how they managed to capture how one dog perceives the world by using his heart rate as a trigger for the camera.
The video, filmed by our camera crew, features Grizzler the Border Collie wearing a Nikon camera attached to a harness. Each time Grizzler gets excited or happy, his heart rate increases and in turn triggers a mechanism to depress the camera's shutter and take a picture allowing us to see the world from Grizzler's perspective.
Due to Grizzler's active running and jumping on his adventure, many shots were blurred - reflective of Grizzler's energy! We chose the best ones to feature in this video.
To ensure Grizzler's safety and comfort, the crew constantly followed him to provide ample hydration, food and other necessities, and as such, some photos you see may have included members of the crew in the background.
