Dogs with No Limits

The air was dry and hot as I pulled off of onto a dirt road leading towards a cabin in the distance. I had stopped to survey a herd of cattle grazing alongside the doves roosting above the fence line. The sun was setting and had seemingly brought a magical stillness over everything out in front of me. I drew in a big deep breath and smiled – this was Kansas.

It had been over 30 hours of traveling before I reached where I was supposed to be the day prior. Long flight delays, two cancelled flights, and a missed connection (not to mention the lost luggage with my gimbal stabilizer in it) caused a big delay in my weekend plans of photographing the working dogs and owner, JC Bosch of No Limits Kennels out in Heizer, Kansas.

The original plan was to fly into Wichita, Kansas and then drive 1.5 hours to meet JC and the dogs at his cabin near the Quivira National Wildlife Refuge in Hudson. We were to get 2 full days of shooting before I had to leave Sunday afternoon. However, the world proved otherwise and only graced me with the morning of my departure to get into the field with the dogs. Despite the time constraint, JC and I were determined to make the best of the time I would have that morning.

With a variety of different dogs in different stages of their training, I was provided with multiple opportunities to see these high-performing dogs work. From started dogs all the way to highly polished and seasoned veterans – JC showed me that these dogs truly have no limit to their capabilities and potential in the field.

I’m quite sure that this will not be the last time I find myself in Kansas, as I am already planning my return for the fall for the hunting season. In the meantime, check out some of the photographs from the shoot below.

Enjoy!
