The photo above serves two purposes: firstly, it's cute. Secondly, it was taken by a wonderful photographer of ours called Phil Smithies. When other sites ask their photographers to spend time in sweaty photo pits, we ask ours if they'd like to hang out with the artists themselves - and in this case, their pets too.

We don't always get things right, but the idea of doing things differently is at the heart of the 405, so it's time to bring in more people that feel the same way.
