Biography:

I started walking dogs in Boston in 1996. Hundreds of dogs have come and gone through my pack over the past 24 years. I entertain the dogs and they entertain me. There's a deep bond and synergy that comes from working with a group of dogs, many of them from the time they were puppies. My hope is that that connection between the dogs & me comes through in my photos.

The Story Behind the Photo:

I had wanted to pose my pack on the steps at Fan Pier for a while but it had never really worked out the way I wanted. When I got there on this occasion last Fall, the light was perfect and the Boston skyline was even more striking than usual. I decided that instead of having the dogs facing me like I normally do, I would turn them to face the the opposite direction and I'd photograph them admiring the view of our lovely city. This can be a challenge because the dogs naturally want to turn and see what I'm up to behind them but they have posed for me so many times now that they trust in what I'm doing. We got the shot with very little trouble.

Favorite thing about Boston:

Boston is a fantastic city for many reasons but one of them is its walkability. You can hit the pavement in any direction from Boston Common and find places of interest to both humans and dogs. We have found hidden jewels around every corner in Boston. Sometimes we cross the river and visit Cambridge & Charlestown too. There's just so much history here!

Biography:

I’m Tiernan, 28, love photography. Walking around Boston with my camera and headphones is like therapy to me.

The Story Behind the Photo:

Took this photo by holding camera vertically, close to a sewer/manhole cover with the ‘Boston’ lettering pointing towards the city. I took the photo because I thought it was a uniquely framed cityscape shot.

Favorite thing about Boston:

Favorite thing about Boston is the pride of the city.
