"Sometimes you meet extremely skilled professionals..
During my visit as a judge for the 2017 New England Regional Championship in USA for some weeks ago I met one. Often when I judge I have to guide the photographers because they are all over the place. Brian, you were like a ghost. I didn’t see you, didn’t hear you, and you didn’t disturb any dog or handler... still you show us pictures like you was in the middle of the field! It impresses me. You take crazy good and very special photos, please keep it up."
- Pierre Wahlstrom, Lund, Sweden. 7 times World Championship IPO Judge, 2007 WUSV IPO World Champion

"In a day where everyone has a phone and camera at their finger tips, it takes an artist to set their photography apart from the masses. Brian is that artist. He has a way of capturing the temperament and personality of his subjects, and more importantly, the relationship of the teams. I can't recommend Brain enough, whether it's to capture the exciting details of your event, or it's too highlight memories of a special relationship. You will be so grateful that you chose him, as you will look at your photos and they will touch your emotions."
- Christie Meyer Faccinto, Cookeville, TN.
"After being in dog sport for ten years, and also playing high level athletics, I have seen tons of artists and their work. None of them come close to the unbelievable quality that Brian produces. He is a man with unrivaled talent and an impeccable work ethic. It is always a joy to see Brian flying around the field faster than any of the handlers; in a manner that doesn't take away from what's going on in the field, but preserves the moments forever. Thank you Brian, I am one of many who truly treasure your talent and work!"

His pictures are always outstanding, his work ethic is fantastic, and his natural "eye" and skill for capturing the moment are extraordinary.

It's actually exciting to participate in an event in which he is the photographer because you KNOW you will get excellent shots of your dog!

- Theresa Currier, Frederick, MD. USCA World Team Member

"Brian is a true student of his craft. His desire to capture the movement and mood of each shot is evident as he crawls, runs and rolls into position on the field! In addition, his knowledge of the sport, being a competitor himself, allows him to be prepared to get those shots that truly show the athleticism and talent of the animals. The result: magnificent photos. Thank you Brian! You are an asset to the sport of Schutzhund!"
- Lori Lippincott, Lincoln, CA.
"Brian Aghajani is bar none the best photographer for IPO competition that I have ever seen. There's no secret to his success... he has outstanding equipment, excellent feel for scene composition, flawless technique, and knowledge of the sport from a competitor's point of view. Brian knows where to position himself to be in the right place at the right time to capture the perfect shot. I am thrilled anytime I see him listed as the official photographer for IPO championships.
Furthermore, his photos are prominently displayed in Schutzhund USA magazine in the articles for any events that he is present. His photos are cover-page worthy and any article that features his photos is enhanced by their quality.
In summary, Brian Aghajani is an outstanding dog sport photographer because he has the right equipment, instincts, field position, technique, and PASSION for excellence."
- Yvette Skinner, Valejo, CA. Contributing writer for USCA Schutzhund magazine
