“I NEVER said they were in bad taste.NEVER tell me to get a grip until you have walked in my shoes saving animals on a day to day basis and see what I see.Hundreds of people send me comments of these pics b/c they feel the animal looks frightened.Although beautiful they may be,people take things the wrong way.Just as you did.So until you fight on a daily basis,rescuein,fostering,getting animals out of dangerous,sick situations.And reads the emails I get on these pics then comment back to me.Yes they are beautiful .But like I said what other people see and what you and I see are different!!”

“Hey RoseAnn,

It's wonderful that you have the animals best interest at heart, wish there were more people like you in this world, but reading on Seth's website, he is very much into animal welfare, not hurting them in anyway:

Photographer Seth Casteel is passionate about helping animals and believes every pet deserves a loving home. He volunteers with animal shelters and rescues all over the country, professionally photographing dogs and cats to give them a better chance of finding forever homes. Seth's professional photos result in increased adoptions and help generate more traffic to the shelters and rescues.

SECOND CHANCE PHOTOS:
Seth's volunteer efforts have led to the launch of SecondChancePhotos.org, a non-profit dedicated to saving pets through photography. By teaching workshops at shelters in the United States and beyond, Seth's mission is to educate and inspire other passionate animal ambassadors to improve the image of rescue and adoption, striving towards ending pet overpopulation and unnecessary suffering. Please visit the website to learn more and how you can help.

"Pets bring us so much happiness. It is our resonsibility to look out for our little friends, and fight for them when they need our help. They are self-less, loving and forgiving - qualities I think human beings can admire and hope to achieve. Let us take action to show them we are grateful for the amazing beings that they are, and how they complete our lives."”

“I understand where you're coming from, but the artist is not forcing these dogs to do anything they wouldn't normally do. If he was holding them underwater, I would definitely understand the outrage...but he's not. He's simply taking pictures of what their faces look like when they dive into the pool for a ball. I follow the artist on facebook, and adore every single shot he's taken. The majority are not underwater photos, and they all touch my heart deeply. You should take a look, if you haven't seen them.

I too know what it's like to work with dogs on a daily basis (I have worked in veterinary medicine for 8 years, in addition to rescues, kennels and groomers). We constantly see awful things, animals that are suffering and mistreated...which is why I am grateful to Seth Casteel for reminding me daily of the joy that our canine companions bring to our lives, and we to theirs, reminding me why I do what I do when things get hard to handle.

I hope you're able to see the beauty and inspiration that I do in these photos, and to help broaden the minds of those that don't yet.”

“I think some of those pics look horrible.With all the BSL LAWS going on around the world.I understand what the artist was going for.But I think they are in bad taste.The dogs look frightened & some look scared.It is not the right time for this.I have been fighting for animal rights now for years.I will not want anyone I know to see these.Its just not the right time!!!”

“Get a grip! Let's see a picture of you diving in a pool underwater, horrible!!! ... This is an amazing portrait of these beautiful creatures just having a little dip in the pool. What does swimming have to do with BSL??”
