Photographer Keoki Flagg of Gallery Keoki has been capturing the heart of sale of our favorite canines for years.

Keoki has shot for an international roster of ski and adventure publications including Warren Miller, National Geographic Adventure, Men’s Journal, Outside, Audubon, Ski and Skiing and many others. His love of Lake Tahoe and his home mountain, Squaw, has inspired him to include a permanent collection of photos of Squaw patrol dogs that compliment his extensive portfolio.
