Photographing iconic canine mascots has been part of The Dogist mission since the beginning, so meeting April, the Budweiser Dalmatian, was a true honor! And since we shot at the original Budweiser brewery in St. Louis, MO, I also got to hang out and take pictures with the famed Clydesdales. The whole project centered around Budweiser’s new initiative to brew their beer using 100% renewable electricity powered by wind, which is a great precedent for a company as big as Anheuser-Busch InBev to set. Find out more by checking out BudweiserUSA on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Here are a few images from that awesome day!

They made quick work of this stuffed football.
April kept the Clydesdales company while they munched on carrots and apples.
The second shoot we did with the Budweiser team was at a Super Bowl Pup-up Studio event we co-hosted in NYC. More than a hundred dogs showed up to socialize, take pictures, and celebrate Budweiser’s new wind energy initiative. It was an awesome event and we thank everyone who came out! Here are a few images from that day!
