In this artist talk, Ellen Shershow will explore photographing dogs, a process that begins with unearthing the personal stories of the four legged creatures we share our homes with. Every two and four legged creature on this planet has at least one personal story that will blow your socks off. Ellen believes that these stories remind us of who we are, inform our lives, and connect us to our personal stories.

Ellen will share her own story that brought her to photographing dogs, as well as practical advice for working with dogs and how to interview your fellow humans and learn their story.

Ellen Shershow is a commercial and fine art photographer based in Oakland, California. Her work has been published and exhibited nationally. She has been profiled about her pet portraiture on NPR’s Marketplace, LA Magazine and Slate, and spoke at Today at Apple as part of Apple’s photo lab.

After earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and her Masters of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Ellen has remained passionately involved with the Bay Area arts community. With over a decade of experience as President of the SF Camerawork Board of Directors, chair of the SF Camerawork Benefit Auction, and President of the Board of Directors at the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, she has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars and provide a community of mentors to support emerging artists.

Ellen continues to hone her own art practice, with recent residencies at Light Gray Area (2017-2019) and Oakland Pro Arts (2017). She is currently working on a book about senior dogs. To see more of Ellen’s work, please visit her website >
