Editorial Reviews

About the Author

After studying photography at Appalachian State University and the University of Western Sydney in Australia, Brooke Mayo worked with Joyce Tenneson and Lois Greenfield in New York City. Since starting the Diving Doggies project in 2007, Mayo compiled a sizable archive of different breeds and locations. Submissions to magazines including Urban Dog, Rangefinder, Underwater Photography, and Bark magazine have yielded several feature articles, while also introducing the photo community (and broader readerships) to an untouched segment of photography. The concept is exciting because it brings forward a great human (and animal) interest story. Readers and viewers have a deep appreciation for, and familiarity with, their dogs. Diving Doggies sets out to humanize our best friends, because we too can see a bit of ourselves when they make that splash.

This book from preeminent east coast photographer Brooke Mayo is a delight!! The images and the ideas are truly masterful, if you love dogs or you love photography you will enjoy this creative book. How in the world she is able to capture such expression underwater is beyond me. She clearly has a love for the animals that she photographs and the rapport is clear in the final product. The printing and binding of the book are very strong and the images are vivid on quality photo quality paper making this an awesome addition to any coffee table or library collection.

A must have for dog lovers and collectors of creative and fun photography. This is one of the best gifts that my wife has bought for me in a long time!! Wonderful Book-Must see to believe!

In a world saturated with photographers, few truly have the gift of creating photographic works of art. Brooke Mayo truly has this gift. She enjoys searching for new moments in a fresh & lively way. In 'Diving Doggies' she has taken her subject beyond the normal expectations of photography. She dives under the water with her subjects allowing us to see what we've never seen before. She takes what might be considered a mundane activity for some and turned it into something colorful & expressive. This book is a fantastic photographic essay like nothing I've seen before. It was fresh, fun & playful- A work of art that can be appreciate by millions.

You don't have to be a Dog Lover to appreciate this book!
