Goes to Videographer Brian Potts
Nationally acclaimed Videographer and Dog Trainer Brian Potts, was recently awarded the K9 Camera Award 2011 for Best DOGumentary for his behind the scenes look at America’s most experienced Pet Photographer, Richie Schwartz.
Simply, but aptly named “ Profile of America's Pet Photographer” the production stars Schwartz and several dogs. Often called the Dog Whisperer of Pet Photographers because of his uncanny ability to calm even the most energetic of dogs, Schwartz has photographed more than 70,000 pets over the last 30 years, giving rise to his reputation as "America’s Most Experienced Pet Photographer".
Schwartz himself was recently named among the "Top 25 Pet People of 2010," a list compiled by NBC Universal's PetSide.com that includes Oprah Winfrey, Ellen Degenres, Betty White and Elayne Boosler. The rankings are based on the individual's impact on the welfare of pets, the capacity to raise the public profile of pets in need and the ability to inspire others into action. Schwartz is listed at #23.
