My name is Truls and I work as a freelance photographer in Bergen – Norway.

This project started with my fascination for large breeds a few years back, especially the Irish Wolfhound. I had some idea of an exhibition or something at the time. But it was never realized. So I started @dogsbestman on Instagram, and it proved to be quite popular. The only problem was that I had run out of dog pictures after a few weeks. So there was only one thing to do, go out to photograph more dogs!

I often combine people and dogs. And most of the time I use my friends as models. Sometimes I see a place that I know is going to fit with a specific breed of dog. Other times I see a person I’d like to use as a model for a picture. And that’s probably the style that distinguishes me from many others who take pictures of dogs.

I am very grateful for Instagram. It’s a platform where I can continually post pictures without either my followers or I get tired of all my dog pictures. :) So in many ways Instagram keeps me creatively challenged and active. And I guess we’ll see if it gets an exhibition soon. Fingers crossed!

All pictures are taken with Leica M (Typ 240) and Leica Summarit-M 50mm f2.5.

Love, Truls /// Dogsbestman
