Photos: Even dogs are taking selfies these days...
You’d be lucky to get through the day without seeing a selfie somewhere; the craze is so popular that even animals are getting in on the act! Okay, these husky dogs aren’t actually taking pictures of themselves but the results of this fun photo shoot are pretty impressive! The idea of creative couple Chanel and Stevo, aka ‘We Are How Far From Home’, these “selfie” shots were taken during a recent stay in Alta, Norway. Having left their jobs to “embark on a little creative exploration” the adventurous pair from South Africa spent five weeks with the dogs whilst at a Husky training and sledding lodge: “They had over 70 dogs which we helped look after – feeding, grooming and walking them…each one of the dogs had their own unique personality and we wanted to capture their portrait in a unique way that showed this off. “So after getting to know the dogs (which took some time) we began to allow the dogs to jump on us and hug us. “At that point, we took some photos. Most of them did not work, but some came out exactly how we wanted them too!” For more of our dog and travel photography visit @HowFarFromHome & @PixelPaws on Instagram Featuring: Atmosphere Where: Alta, Norway When: 24 Jul 2015 Credit: Supplied by **WENN does not claim any ownership including but not limited to Copyright, License in attached material.

Taylor Bishop has the story.
