The viral instagram account, The Dogist, has about 2.6 million followers and was created by Elias Weiss Friedman, a 29-year-old from New York City who just loves photographing dogs..

The Dogist has since been turned in to a New York Times bestselling book and he has a second book called ‘The Dogist Puppies’ which will be released in September.

Friedman created The Dogist in 2013 and has grown from the small Instagram account to paid photoshoots to a book deal and now he is able to support himself by doing what he loves – photographing dogs.
