Sundog [suhn-dawg, -dog]
meteorological name parhelion

  1. : any of several bright spots often tinged with color that often appear parallel to the horizon at the altitude of the sun
  2. : a mock sun

You’ve probably seen them- two small rainbow arcs on either side of the sun. These are called Sundogs. They almost always show in pairs and are recognizable because they are bright and colorful- like our imagery.

At SUNDOG Productions, we deeply enjoy playing with light. Photography is, after all, the capturing of light. We are passionate about capturing artistically captivating images that convey the greater beauty of the time, place, or people in the image.

Beyond our endless excitement for shooting and processing creative images, we are all about connecting with the like-minded among us, regardless of their experience or what gear they’re using to capture.  Adventure photography is, in itself, an adventure… and everyone knows, adventures are better together!

Behind the Lens

We are a couple of photographers, madly in love with each other and the art of image capture.

Ryan Voight comes from a formal education in video production, and brings with him a unique blend of the technical aspects of photography, combined with a Peter-Pan-like passion for playing with light and capturing visually engaging images.  Ryan is the fire behind SUNDOG’s “adventure photography”.

Desiree Voight is super in-tune to everyone around her, with an uncanny ability to perceive human emotions and be perfectly poised to capture when and how those emotions are expressed. Desiree’s skills in connecting with people are a big part of what sets SUNDOG Productions apart from all others.  She is, of course, an incredible photographer as well- with an excellent eye for even the most minute details, in addition to spotting and freezing those moments- the ones of most importance to you.  Desiree is the reason SUNDOG’s Wedding Photography is as uniquely spectacular as it is.

Together, when we’re not out shooting or working on digitally developing client images, we’re spending quality family time with our two daughters- Scarlett and Piper- and our black lab-mix pupper, Jackson.  We are outdoor adventure enthusiasts, so we might be out hiking or we might be up hang gliding…

Mission Statement

We are committed to sharing our passion for producing creative, beautiful, and artistic images in support of YOUR adventure.

We support our fun and adventurous clients by wonderfully photographing them “in their element”- wherever their passion flows.  We come alive when we’re on-site shooting, and again when processing the raw photos into stunning images in post.  Our understanding of that feeling, being so ON and present- and the way we embrace it- is what sets us apart.  It’s what makes us THE adventure photographers; THE perfect fit for fellow adventurists.  If you are reading this and connecting with what we’re saying- we are here for YOU.  We are your tribe, we see you, and we get you.  Let us show you, in the images we create for you.

We’d love to hear from you- what makes you feel alive?  And how can our passion serve you?  It would be our honor to create, for you, something uniquely special and meaningful like no one else can.

Our enthusiasm for adventure photography isn’t limited to us creating images- we’re also dedicated to inspire and support ALL adventure photographers.  In addition to our adventure photography services, we commit ourselves to sharing techniques and providing education, as well as organizing opportunities to connect with us and other adventure enthusiasts while capturing interesting images all around the Hudson Valley.  No matter your experience level or what you’re shooting with, we would love to help you improve your images, learn about new visually interesting places, and to experience greater enjoyment and overall satisfaction from your own adventure photography. 


Carpe Noctem

Carpe Diem is a well-known latin phrase, meaning seize the day.  It’s an excellent philosophy for any photographer, be it a pro or hobbiest/enthusiast.  Carpe Noctem, you might have guessed, means seize the NIGHT. If you’re not afraid of the dark, and willing to give up some precious sleep… and dress warm… night time photography …

Happy Snowy Day

Remember when you were a kid, waking up in the morning and seeing that blanket of white outside… and you just knew, NO SCHOOL TODAY!!! As we grow older, our view- and appreciation- of that morning “winter grace” tends to fade.  It’s no less beautiful… but now it means needing to shovel, plow, or snow-blow.  …
