The ultimate dog photoshoot with Nokia 9 PureView #ForgottenDogsofInstagram

The Nokia 9 PureView is the world’s first 5 camera array smartphone and has been used to bring out the unique personalities of the #ForgottenDogsOfInstagram through the power of photography.


HMD Global has today announced a unique partnership with a group of photographers and animal shelters to help rehome dogs in need, through a series of exceptional photographs taken with the new Nokia 9 PureView.


New Zealand is a nation obsessed with man’s best friend, however not all dogs will be lucky enough to have a loving family this winter. HMD Global’s partnership with animal shelters and photographers aims to help these forgotten dogs by capturing the hearts of their future owners through a series of thought provoking and emotive images, using the world’s first 5 camera array smartphone.


Claire Thornton from HUHA - Helping You Help Animals shelter in Otaki - commented how important photography is for animals in need; “Capturing a great image of a dog looking for a new home can really help make a huge difference to finding them a family” said Claire.


“With thousands of dogs in shelters across New Zealand, we’re thrilled that HMD Global is helping us raise awareness of animals in desperate need. We’re hopeful that these stunning shots, which showcase each of the dog’s unique personalities, will do exactly that for Lilly, Cookie, Benji, Blossom and Ruby, as well as other forgotten dogs looking for their forever home.”


HMD Global has appointed a Dog Squad of photographers across New Zealand and Australia, to ensure that the #ForgottenDogsofInstagram will finally be given the profile shot they deserve.


James Robinson, Country Manager – ANZ at HMD Global commented: “Whilst dogs might be one of the most adorable photography subjects, they certainly aren’t the easiest to take. That’s why we’re so proud to be working with the team at Helping You Help Animals and further animal shelters, to use the photography power of the new Nokia 9 PureView to help capture shots of dogs in need that are looking for their forever home.


“Every picture taken with the Nokia 9 PureView is HDR and all five cameras work together simultaneously to capture the image with outstanding dynamic range and unparalleled depth of field, offering the perfect smartphone for photography enthusiasts across New Zealand.”


The Nokia 9 PureView device features two colour sensors for accurate vibrant colour images and three monochromatic sensors which give sharpness and detail; meaning no moment (or dog) will ever be forgotten again. All five sensors work together to collect up to 10-times the amount of light than a single sensor of the same type.


Dogs featured within the #ForgottenDogsofInstagram image series are looking for a new home. HMD Global has also released a short film following the story of the ‘Dog Squad’ and the very special photoshoot they coordinated with four dogs. The film is available to view on Nokia Mobile’s Facebook page.


The Nokia 9 PureView in Midnight Blue is the latest addition to a range of new Nokia smartphones now running Android, including the recently released Nokia 8.1. The Nokia 9 PureView in Midnight Blue is available in New Zealand from Tuesday 7 at Spark, Skinny and Harvey Norman.
