Jim Boisvert loves dogs.
He also loves photographing them at Compo Beach. Westporters have noticed Jim and his partner Jamie Grandison — also a dog photographer — taking shots of any canine that wants its picture taken.
Jim and Jamie live in Cheshire. But they come often to Compo and Longshore.
Jim likes chatting with the walkers on the beach, and takes a photo of any veteran who agrees.
“Good, friendly people,” he says. “I love coming here.”
In warm weather, Jim bikes through the backwoods of Connecticut taking images of wildlife and beauty.
He does not accept payment for any dog photos or prints. That would take the fun out of it, he says.
Jim and Jamie have one request: a donation to the Cheshire Community Food Pantry. Paying it forward, one bark at a time.
