Seth Casteel started as a volunteer photographer for shelter pets in 2007. Seeing that his photos were helping dogs get adopted, he developed a career as a lifestyle pet photographer. His work became most well-known in 2010 when he noticed one Cavalier King Charles Spaniel he was photographing preferred to be in the pool more than on land. So, Casteel jumped in the water to take some pictures. Now, his series of Underwater Dogs have been exhibited around the world and published in the National Geographic and New York Times. He’s also written the best selling photography book of 2012. Still serving pets in need of homes, Casteel teaches shelters how to take photographs across the United States, Europe, Australia, and Indonesia.
