Meet The Canine Models of "Underwater Dogs": Amazing Animal Photography

Casteel captures the expressions of dogs expertly.

Photographer Seth Casteel has done an unimaginable thing: he’s created an entire photography book of dogs from an underwater perspective, and the photos are simply stunning.

Today, Casteel’s book, entitled “Underwater Dogs,” hit the shelves (and is also available online) and brings a new view that many of us haven’t seen before. The book showcases various breeds jumping in water headfirst, paddling away underneath or grabbing a ball. Flipping through each page gives you the perspective of being right in the water directly beneath every pup as they jump in.

For Casteel, the book also shows the wild side that our beloved domestic dogs still retain:

“Over the course of several thousands of years, we’ve taken wolves and made them Boston terriers. But still, at the heart of it, dogs have wild instincts. For me, it’s all about seeing those wild instincts come through underwater. They’re getting back to being wild. They really love being wild. And under water, they have the best chance of doing that. Whether it’s silly, whether it’s focused, whether it’s terrifying. You see that underwater.”

Casteel is not only an animal lover but also an animal rescuer, and his genuine love of dogs shines through in his work.
