My name is Brian Aghajani. I am a dog sport photographer based in Houston.  I will be the official photographer this year at the GSDCA Nationals.

My involvement in IPO began in 2001 in Northern California. I have titled three dogs to HOT IPO3 and one also earned an FH2. I have had the pleasure to compete in 4 National IPO Championships with my own dogs.

In 2012, when my dogs grew too old to train I made the move from training dogs to photographing dogs. I love telling the store of the spirit, movement and emotions of IPO through photography. I have been an official photographer for a variety National & World Championships:

• 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 USCA GSD National IPO Championship

• 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 USCA WDC National IPO Championship

• 2015, 2016, 2018 AWDF National IPO Championship

• 2017, 2018 WUSV World IPO Championship

• 2018 USMRA Mondioring National Championship

• 2016 USCA Sieger Show

• More than two dozen Regional IPO and Conformation Championships

Photo packages of IPO and Performance Tests are available by preorder. Photos from the show ring can be purchased directly from website. I am honored to be invited by the GSDCA and look forward to the opportunity of making stunning photos. I invite you to visit my portfolio of working dogs on this website or follow work on

See you in Ohio!
