LIZ STAVRINIDES IS THE ONE BEHIND THE LENS OF CARMEL, CALIFORNIA BASED; LOVEDOG & CO.

BORN AND RAISED IN SAN FRANCISCO, LIZ HAS ALWAYS HAD A DEEP LOVE FOR DOGS. OVER THE YEARS HER LENS HAD BEEN DRAWN TOWARDS ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIORS, “BUT WHEN AN INTERIOR DESIGNER CLIENT ASKED ME TO PHOTOGRAPH THEIR RESCUE DOG I REALIZED THIS WAS MY TRUE INSPIRATION.”

THIS CALIFORNIA-BASED CREATIVE FIRST GAINED ATTENTION SEVERAL YEARS AGO WITH HER BOOK, MIRACLE DOGS: RESCUE STORIES. THE PROJECT TURNED OUT TO BE A FOUR YEAR LABOR OF LOVE THAT TOOK HER AROUND THE COUNTRY. MIRACLE DOGS CELEBRATES AND HONORS THE RESCUERS AND THE DOGS WHOSE LIVES THEY'VE SAVED.

LIZ IS A PRIVATE AND COMMERCIAL PET PHOTOGRAPHER, UNLEASHING HER CREATIVE EYE ON THE WHITE SANDS OF CARMEL BEACH OR POINTING HER LENS AT A FURRY SUBJECT ON THE BEAUTIFUL STREETS OF DOWNTOWN CARMEL.

WHEREVER LIZ IS … LOCALLY OR WORKING ON LOCATION, SHE WILL HAVE HER CAMERA IN HAND. IF YOU RUN INTO HER SAY HELLO
