The concept behind it is so simple: take something awesome, put a dog in the photo, and boom–you’ve got magic. Theron Humphrey did it with Maddie on Things! But one of the most classic cool things on four legs in Menswear Dog. According to their description, “Menswear Dog is a 3 year old shiba inu living in NYC with a panache for all things style. His interests include never washing his selvage denim, lurking around Soho for someone to notice his steez, and sniffing fine a$$ bitches.” While the pup is probably off in the corner having a nap, his human slaves are the likes of Yena, David and Bodhi. And together the trio do all the work, networking, and ball throwing behind the scenes.
We chatted with the team recently about the power of Tumblr for images and the idea.
Phoblographer: Where did you get the inspiration for the series?
Phoblographer: You guys chose to set up the project on Tumblr. What made you choose the platform besides the obvious benefits of the heavy emphasis on the Photo community?
Phoblographer: How do you get the dog to pose for photos?
Phoblographer: You’ve been able to partner up with some big companies like American Apparel. For creatives looking to work with bigger companies, what advice can you give them to get noticed?
