Hi - we have a new product called HayTag (long range, solar powered wireless pet ID) and are targeting females but I haven't seen too many panoramic photos of women walking dogs. We're especially partial to high res images of pretty women walking golden retrievers, labrador retrievers, and west highland terriers.

There are several of a woman with border collie here http://www.istockphoto.com/search/portfolio/935311/?facets=%7B%2225%22%3A%226%22%7D#ef60d78
Too close probably but I could shoot this pair again in March if your project is ongoing? Dog's a Great Pyrenees but she's a great actress and she's willing to pretend to be a golden retriever.

Hey (Hay?) Pat, I saw your video and I would like to shoot some images useful to your campaign ... what is your timeline and concept for how the image would be used ... It is winter where I live but I travel to warm places often ... do you have a preference for the clothing, time of year, etc.?
ETA: I do have access to Goldens, but this model and this German Short Haired Pointer could be shot walking or jogging ...

What a great product! Will it be available in Europe (France)? You're looking for dog=walking off-lead, to go with the idea of being confident even if your dog runs away?

/Hi everyone - sorry for not checking back in sooner and thanks for all the replies and images you posted. I'll try to answer some of the questions in this email:
- cold weather (snow, etc.) shots are fine this time of year, however we are launching in the Spring so will probably be looking for images that are *warmer* as we get closer to launch, but this doesn't prevent us from using the cold weather images again as we get closer to the holidays. I have gotten several emails from future users who say they lost their dog in the winter probably because scents are more difficult to pick up for the dogs in the snow and they more easily lose their way home, etc.
- @jeangill the shots with the Great Pyrenees are great, as is the model. Really like the one where she is resting her head on the dog's shoulder. If we could get a more panoramic shot we could try it on our homepage or across another page. The white hair on the dog should show up well on the page.
- @1morecreative the venue with the blonde and the schnauzer is awesome. I like how she is looking up towards the tops of the trees. Will try it out --- dog may be a bit on the smaller side, tho.
- @tomprout: it's a fantastic shot. Both the dog and the model work great. The eyes of both have a ton of life in them and I think customers might respond well. I would love to see more shots if you can provide them. The timeline for the official launch of HayTag is May 1, but we are taking pre-orders now and generally getting things ramped up for launch.
- General comment on dog + beach scenes. These can be very powerful but we probably need to be able to see the face of the women in the shots, and ideally the face of the dog as well.
ALSO - the ideal image size we are looking for is 1000x234.
Finally, - we have a beta version of our new online store up and running which might help visualize a bit: www.hayt.ag

Thanks for the feedback - will try for a re-shoot by the end of February with those specs in mind.

Are you looking for pretty younger or older women?
Posted Wed Jan 30, 2013 3:48PM
there are two (initial) sets of women that we'd like to show: 25-35 is the primary group, and also 45-55. So depending on your frame of reference, these might be either "older" or "younger" ...
