A showcase of Berner people who happen to be fantastic photographers!

We should all recognize Bernd Guenter's work, his photos have graced calendars for years! And he published the English version of his beautiful book about Bernese, The Bernese Mountain Dog a Dog of Destiny, in 2004. if you don't have it, you should, it's a visual treat!

This is one of my all-time favorite images. I had our Mutz standing on a rock in the Black Forest against a red glowing sky caused by the setting sun, with perfect posture, perfect light, the perfect angle. Shoot. Shoot? Sh…t! The roll of film was at an end. This is where your relationship/bonding with your dog counts. I called ―'Mutz, stay!' Mutz held the stand-stay stock-still until I got a new roll of film into the camera, and – shoot. Shoot! Shoooooot! Perfect! ―'Good boy! Thank you, Mutz, you‘re awesome!!!'
