Looks like Reddit performed another miracle. Who knew Seth Casteel’s photos of dogs rapturously fetching tennis balls underwater wouldn’t do actual IRL good? The Los Angeles-based freelance photographer was flooded with requests from hundreds of potential dog portrait clients after going viral via Reddit and the mega-trail of re-blogs. Now he can charge $995/h and up for an underwater shoot. and fortify to his non-profit Second Chance Photos that trains animal shelter workers to take better adoption photos, aaaawwwww.

He only splurged on a new Canon 7D and some new dog tattoos.

Aaaawwww. Let’s hug.
