I loves animals so much that I not only take pet photography, but am also a vegetarian.
Apart from having experience in taking pet photos, I also have pets. I know about animal behavior (mainly of dogs & cats) and experience taking photos of them to bring out their love.
Pet Photography Sessions
A Pet Photography session, like other photography sessions, requires some information on the pet and the reason for the photo. For example, how the animal behaves in certain circumstances or if you would like a portrait of you or your family with a pet. If the location will be at your home, outside or my studio.
My photography style for pet photography is:
Is done mainly in a documentary style,
If photo session will be a portrait with the pet a Lifestyle photography approach most likely will be used,
While pets aren’t normally very communicative with words, I can feel what the animal would like and any species can communicate via energy,
Also, I better meet the pet a few minutes before the shoot so it get used to me and my camera.
