Sophie and Sarah, a pair of Old English sheepdog sisters living in the Netherlands, are a couple of regular hams when it comes to posing for photos. And that’s OK with their owner Cees Bol, an amateur photographer who loves to follow them around as they post for the camera together with the rest of their sheepdog friends.
6-year-old Sophie and 4-year-old Sarah are sisters from different litters, but they’re still inseparable. They love to pose (especially since they sometimes receive treats for doing so), and they’ve posed in plenty of beautiful locations – from the fields of Sibculo in the Netherlands where they live to the Austrian Alps.
“The main reason I take the photos is so I can make people happy and put a smile on their face – well, Sophie and Sarah do,” Bol told the Dailymail. “In a world full of bad things, I found a way to make it a little bit brighter. And seeing people happy makes me happy.“
Read on for Bol’s answers to Bored Panda’s questions about his photos!
“I am just an amateur, but photography is a big part of my life… I just became a little bit better through the years, and thanks to my sweet models who pose so well,” Cees Bol told Bored Panda
“We keep Sophie and Sarah just as house dogs, a part of our family, we don’t show, don’t breed, they just are a part of our lives”
“I have two friends living close by, and one has six! Often they go for a walk or for a photoshoot with us”
“I didn’t train them at a dog school or something like that, just did it by myself and it wasn’t a hard job”
“Sophie is the best obeying and will do anything for me, Sarah is more about ‘doing it for the cookies'”
“Let the dogs be on their most natural behaviour. Find out what the dogs like most and try to get the best out of it. Don’t force them to do something, you can see it in the picture when a dog isnt happy”
