Clay Patrick McBride

I read a short post today about how much Kid Rock enjoys shooting with photographer Clay Patrick McBride. It reminded me of a shoot I had with Clay a while back, only I was the photographer shooting Clay for a book project I was working on. I too had very much the same experience as Kid Rock, in that Clay was completely without pretense, a dream subject to photograph, offered up anything of his that might add to the photos, and was completely open to anything that gave attention to his dog… who just happens to go about everywhere with him. Thought you would all enjoy a few pics of Judy and Clay from that day in Brooklyn, NY.

  1. Although the photos are beautiful, I have to speak up for the health of the sweet dog living in households with her (I see a scar consistent with a spay in one picture) smoking owner. A University of Colorado study showed that dogs that live in smoking households are more likely to develop nasal tumors. In similar circumstances, cats are more prone to asthma and gastrointestinal lymphoma.
    Let’s take the glamor out of smoking and focus on prioritizing human and animal health.

    My 17 year old cat lived in a house full of smokers. He died of old age. My aunts 20 year old cat lived in a house full of smokers. She died of old age. Our 18 year old dog lived in house full of smokers. He died of old age. Is smoking good for you? No. Should people quit smoking? Absolutely. But did you have to take a perfectly beautiful photo journal and turn it into a medical campaign? Give it a rest. Enjoy the fact that this man adores his dog. And the dog’s name is Judy. So, yes, it is a female. I didn’t need to hunt for a spay scar. I actually read.
