Buyer review complete, Marketplace review

I need something terribly specific. If it doesn't fit the book, I won't be able to use it, no matter how beautiful!

What do women like? Hot men and cute puppies. I am building a romance novel cover to make readers everywhere swoon. Here goes:

I want a studio shot (unless the PERFECT shot exists on a not-too-distracting background) of a caucasian, large, muscular man holding a puppy or a dog. This is for a romance novel where the hero is a large, built, professional athlete. Ideally he has a bare torso and there is some contrast between the dog and the dude.

Note: In my examples here I have torso shots *without* dogs in them. (Because if there were dogs, I wouldn't need to request this photo.) But you can see the approximate layout I'm going for.

The right shot will be croppable into a portrait (book) shape wherein the dog (including his adorable face) and the dude (NOT including his face) are both visible.


Closed because I could not find the right visual for this project

I purchased a photo for the same price from someone who shot several dozen firefighters + dogs for a calendar. Just lucky to find him.

3 years ago - Thanks for the nomination @Sarina Bowen
3 years ago - @nikkagarcez The final crop will be at least 2500 tall by 1700 px wide. @JDMG35 I pictured the man holding it, but I'm flexible.
3 years ago - Sorry I didn't see these messages! Tattoos are okay. The character in the story was a secondary character in another book, so some of his physical traits are already set. He's 25 years old and a bulky professional athlete. But I don't need a face in the shot, just a body and a cute doggy friend.
3 years ago - are tattoos ok?
