Christian Vieler from Waltrop, Germany takes hilarious photos of dogs catching treats or rather trying to catch them. The photographer aims to capture the many facial expressions of doggies depicting such emotions as excitement, sadness or confusion.

“Every shoot I am looking for that specific moment when the dog is looking as cute or funny as they can be,” said Vieler. “That cannot be seen without the power of freezing motion – funny dog’s faces with magnificent lineaments, telling us stories of panic, desire, and joy.” He told Bored Panda that he is inspired by “every silly dog-personality and a good portion of humor.”

Vieler, 45, is a journalist and became interested in photography in 2012 with a purchase of a new camera. “My snapshots with dog treats are not really a project, so you can say: everlasting and ongoing. I shoot a snapshot with every cute dog-guest in my studio. Some are pretty good, some not and a few of these cool photos are really gorgeous.”
