Hilarious Mash-Up Portraits of Pets and Their Owners

Earlier this year, Toronto-based photographer Zach Rose (or @zachdriftwood) made waves when his hilarious Instagram series “Petheadz” started soaring through the web. A clever mash-up of pet owner and pet, the funny portraits consist of Rose holding up a DSLR in the foreground, that shows the pet's head, while the owner is standing in the background. Started as an exercise in creativity with his two roommate, the series soon took on a life of its own with a gallery show and people lining up in droves for Rose to take their picture.

The 24-year-old even got to shoot one of today's most famous dogs, Maddie the Coonhound, with her owner Theron Humphrey. In one of his most recent shots (above), Toronto-based actor Charlie Hamilton is seen sporting his dog's cute head while riding a bike. As Zach writes, “I may be doing a few more #petheadz portraits in the future for those who are interested! Stay tuned.” Just can't get enough of these.
