Dog Quotes - Series 3 (an original 12 picture series). This is the third and final series from Chris Miller launched on Bored Panda.

From puppies to dogs having fun to senior dogs, the Dog Quotes photo series captures the true character of each dog paired with a famous motivational dog quote.

Photographed with the intent to have fun and photograph the true personality of a dog by leading UK dog photographer Chris Miller of MIL Pet Photography, each image is natural and often cute at the same time.

These portraits of dogs with a corresponding dog quote will make you smile and hopefully even laugh. I aim to artfully capture their true personality and character through my photography.

One of my most passionate aims as a dog photographer is to capture the true personality of every dog that I photograph. Using only natural light in the dog’s familiar surroundings, I decided to pair up each specific photo with a meaningful and heartfelt motivational dog quote. I feel privileged to photograph dogs, and believe that all dogs deserve their story to be told through photography.

Photography is my passion, pets are our life. I love nothing more than capturing that unique emotional connection and deep, unconditional love between an owner and their dog. With so many fantastic motivational dog quotes available, it has been a delight to connect them together.

As a child, I only have one photograph of me with my first dog Jenny, a rescue greyhound. I want to make sure that all dog lovers have at least one professional photograph of their dog that they can treasure forever.

Anyone can take a photograph of a dog with their phone camera, and I encourage everyone to keep doing that. I love taking photographs of a dog’s true personality and character, and that special connection that you can get through the eyes of a dog. I pride myself in connecting with their soul through many of my on-location natural light portrait photography. Action photography is great fun, and whilst technically challenging, it is fulfilling when I can produce another great Dogs In Action photograph – of a dog being a dog.

I tend to take most of my photographs in Windsor Great Park in the UK and the surrounding forests around Ascot, where the dogs can enjoy their own magical experience.

I know the names of all the dogs in my neighborhood...my neighbors? Not so much (I just say that's Cookie's mom, or Jake's parents, etc).

For most dog lovers, their dog means the world to them. I want to give a voice to dogs and tell their story through photography. Whether it’s a dog in rescue, or a dog simply having fun with their owners, all dogs deserve their stories to be told.

I enjoy creating magical experiences for dogs and their owners in natural environments like parks and forests.

My boxer dog (Doogie) is a rescue, and not hard to understand at all! So either I know how to listen, or his conversations are all food based. (LOL)

If we speak about the response from the audience regarding this series, it’s been great to hear from dog lovers across the world. So many of them have been saying they loved the articles and that they’d like to see more posts like these. It’s why I created 3 of these series, this one being the last of the three.

My absolute favorites are back in series 1 and series 2. In this final of the series, my favorite is Pippa walking through the forest here and the quote "If Your Dog Doesn't Like Someone You Probably Shouldn't Either”. She’s such a beauty to photograph and her eyes say it all.

I’d encourage any photographer looking to embark on similar projects to focus on a theme. My first project was Tongue Out Dogs published on Bored Panda here. I was so encouraged by the feedback from that, I decided to move to quotes about dogs paired to a photo I had taken in the past. I think many photographers could take inspirational quotes and put them against their photos, create a post of 12-20 images in all… and perhaps post a series once a quarter. A cohesive series of images is fun to create as well as read all about.

I’ve just turned 60 years old, and I am creating a special project that will take most of the year, celebrating the lives of dogs. It’s a big fundraiser and it may become a book project overall; I’m just working through a few options and considerations now before I launch it in January. For me, all dogs deserve their story to be told, and in 2024, I plan to do that big time! I’ll bring some of this work back to Bored Panda for sure, but probably not until this time next year as the project is huge! It should be a series of 3 future posts on Bored Panda, hopefully.
