Friday Finds: Dog Photography, GorillaPods in the Wild

By | Friday Find, Uncategorized | No Comments

Happy Friday Creactives!

Let’s just talk a little bit about our dogs, shall we? Dogs are a constant in our lives — they are unconditionally loving, they’re silly, they chew up our newspapers and our keds. And we love them for all of this.  As I was scrolling through my photo library the other day, I noticed that the majority of my pictures are of my dog. It’s official, I’ve been snared in her web of cuteness. And I probably won’t be able escape. I’m sure you’re all dying to see her now …

Cute, right?

It turns out, a lot of folks are just as into their pets as I am. Pet photography is a serious business and requires a lot skill. Like toddlers, those pups don’t really hold still. Earlier this week, I stumbled across the portfolio of Carli Davidson, a successful photographer of pets (and other things as well). Her images are cute, fun and really showcase the personality of each pet. My favorite images were from her Shake series. She took some fabulously funny photos of wet dogs shaking themselves dry, capturing the few seconds that most of us duck and cover from. Here are a few images. They’ll make you smile. To see more, visit her portfolio.


Do you have an adorable pooch? Or cat? Or salamander? Link, tweet or Facebook your photos so we can gush over our pets together. Don’t leave me hanging!

Summer continues to be a great season for the GorillaMobile and GorillaTorch lines. The GorillaMobile Yogi was featured in a beach vacation survival kit on Beach Tomato and the GorillaTorch Flare was lauded one of the top four camping products in the newest issues of FYI Apple Magazine.

We agree that it’s pretty fabulous!

Our loyal band of creactives has also been very busy this summer using their GorillaPods in a variety of different ways all over the world. Here are a few Instagram images they’ve shared with us from their travels.

Just gorgeous! I love summer! Why don’t we get out there and enjoy it while it’s still around (and send me photo evidence of a good time had on Monday)!

Friday Finds: Videos to Celebrate Summer; Camping, On the Water or On the Road

Hello Creactives!

We are headed out to an offsite in Park City, Utah to catch up on all the summer fun that you all seem to have been experiencing. Watch this space for photos of us taking advantage of the great outdoors. In the meantime, enjoy these fun videos of other creactives taking full advantage of the elements.

Taking Down Camp Rocker Style
At times, this does not seem like the most efficient way of packing up, but eventually, like the song, these guys seem to get into the rhythm. Captured with a Canon 5D, a Gorillapod and a soundtrack to rock out to, this video let’s you see a little bit of Mount Adams and the outdoors. Even, when you are trapped inside.

Windsurfing From All Angles

This starts a little slow, but gains energy and ends up with some crazy cool angles as the sail lifts up and over head and the windsurfer takes on speed and really takes advantage of the Gorillapod and Fisheye lens.

Oh Elise

I must admit that when I hear Elise, I think of my fabulous friend (salut Elise!). Apparently, I am in the minority – in this office the Lotus Elise seems to be king. This drive in the Loire Valley is captured with new Panasonic Lumix TZ10 and of course, a Gorillapod. This guy is clearly a gear head…and please, don’t test me on what happens in minute 9 of the movie.

…and a Gorillapod Focus Press Hit

5 out 5 ain’t bad. Especially, when you aren’t selling toothpaste or other dental products. This great review of the Gorillapod Focus by Appletell makes us happy.
