Our company has been hired to photograph for Raising Cane’s for quite a while now. By we, I mainly mean our owner/lead photographer, Joey (with some help along the way). Over the years we have established a well-structured business relationship with Todd Graves and his employees. As a result of this relationship, we have consistently been reconsidered for every event. We are ecstatic every time we are hired to capture the moments of Raising Cane’s which will be shared world-wide. I bet you didn’t know that the photo on the gift card you got your best friend for Christmas was one we took. Pretty cool, right? Well, what is even cooler, is we also shot their limited-edition puppy calendar.
Raising Cane’s recently released a 2019 calendar, and we were once again hired to capture the photographs. Our work with Cane III over the past year has been absolutely incredible. Not only have we watched her grow physically, but we have witnessed her intelligence grow as well.
Who exactly is Cane III?
Overall, Cane III is the ultimate face of Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers. Cane III, just like her predecessor Cane II, is a fully-trained service dog. Moreover, she is just as obedient as she is cute (and let’s be honest, she’s pretty darn cute). The ability to capture photos of animals is not always an easy task, but Cane’s training aids in the process tremendously. Cane has been locally trained by Larry Benoit, and boy has he done a fabulous job. Cane’s intelligence is beyond belief, and she is absolutely astonishing to work with.
What the calendar’s all about:
Working with Raising Cane’s throughout the years has held great honors, but this calendar holds closest to our hearts. In capturing these photos and contributing to the calendar itself, Raising Cane’s has been able to significantly contribute to the community. For each calendar sold, Raising Cane’s donated all proceeds to local pet-welfare organizations. These organizations were each hand chosen by restaurant managers, and made the contribution that much more special. Knowing that in capturing these photos of Cane for the calendar, we were able to assist in aiding our community, makes our job that much more special.
An interjection regarding the cuteness overload-
Seriously, can we just talk about how cute Cane III is? As a result of her training & our experience, we are able to capture beautiful shots of her like these. Then of course, it is printed and published so all of you can relish in the cuteness as well.
Telling a story with the photos-
The photo above is probably my absolute favorite photo in this entire calendar. So much effort goes into telling a true story behind every photo. In this photo, you can sense the fun and playful side of Cane III. Your interpretation of this photo, and the others in this blog, is aided by this visuals of the actual still-shot. No matter where you image this shot taken, or what you think the actual scenario was, it is clear to see that fun was had.
Drew Brees has nothing on Cane III (but we still love him)-
I personally am not one for choosing any particular person for being the most valuable, but I think we can all agree Cane III wins the Most Valuable Pup trophy this year.
Sit back, relax, and know we’ve got it handled-
In conclusion, as I follow along in my calendar over the next year, I will eventually reach an end. This end will be followed by a new beginning. New faces, new job opportunities, and many other firsts are all on my resolutions. December 2019 will mean another year of watching Cane III grow more and more. We will continue to progress in our career and I hope that by December of this year, we will be able to say that we aided you and your corporation in all your photography needs as well.
Here’s to new beginnings, and hiring us for all your corporate (and maybe even animal) needs,
