Affenpinschers are often affectionally referred to as the “monkey dogs” or “ape terriers” because of their uncanny resemblance to a number of smaller New World Primates. The French refer to the breed as the “diablotin moustachu”, which translates into English as “mustachioed little devil”. But having had a chance to work with a handful of these adorable little creatures recently, we’re convinced that these funny little dogs look more like the results of Ewok and Wookie crossbreeding (we’re Star Wars nerds — sorry, not sorry!). Chewie did spend some time on the Forest Moon of Endor and the Ewoks were known for tossing some absolute ragers in their time – so, who knows to say what actually happened?
Photographing black dogs well is a challenge
Photographing black dogs, such as Affenpinschers, can admittedly be a struggle. But it is a task that we as professional dog photographers are asked to do fairly often. So much so, that we’ve developed a handful of signature flash photography techniques for photographing black dogs. While many photographers use light meters to expose to the fur of the pups, we instead expose to the sheen of the fur and eyes. This style of dog portrait allows us to highlight fur and face details, but prevents our pet portrait photographers from over exposing the frame and is why commonly dark breeds such as Black Labs and Standard poodles look so healthy in our dog photos.
Affenpinscher puppies are in high demand
These adorable Affenpinscher puppies were brought to us by a local breeder, located in Roland Park – just a few miles away from our dog friendly photo studio in Hampden. Which is pretty amazing when you consider how rare and in demand these puppies have become since an Affenpinscher recently won “Best in Show” at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City, New York. Which explains why dog lovers across Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. raced to snatch these dogs up so quickly!
Anyways, that’s enough chatter for now. Let’s get to why you clicked here in the first place 😉
