Welcome to the Official Site of Ron Schmidt's fun and witty conceptual dog photography.
Ron’s love of photography started at age 9 with an old camera that his Uncle Russ gave him for Christmas. That day, he snapped his first dog photo of his collie Nicki and hasn’t stopped taking pictures of since (but now he has a way better camera)!
Ron’s whimsical images have captured the hearts of dog lovers worldwide. His images can be found on stationary, home décor, calendars and in his latest Random House children’s book Dog-Gone School.
Ron’s work is also available nationally at many fine retail stores which include:
Random House - Dog-Gone School - Many fine book stores and online retailers
LL Bean, Plow & Hearth - Framed prints
**Animal welfare issues are extremely important to Ron. Each month, a portion of Loose Leashes sales are donated to a cause that supports animal rights
