Clients’ dogs kept wrecking photographer’s paper backdrops — so she made a feature of it


WHEN it comes to their moment in the spotlight, these dogs know how to make an entrance.

Photographer An Smedts became so fed up with her clients’ pets wrecking her studio’s paper backdrops she made a feature of it instead.

She started getting them to peep through holes before posting the shots on her Facebook page and asking her followers to guess the breed.

An, from Belgium, got the idea after an “enthusiastic” Rottweiler ran through a paper backdrop.

She said: “That was the point I decided to try out something with all the damaged or dirty backgrounds instead of throwing them away.

“It’s exciting because you never know the results in advance.”

Here, EMMA PIETRAS and AMY READING reveal An’s best pawtraits.
