Portrait, wildlife and landscape photography



Animal and pet photography is a passion of mine. I love to capture the spirit and personality of animals in their natural environment. My subjects include, but are not limited to dogs, cats, birds, horses, rabbits, reptiles, and fish. Both in wild and domestic settings, there are challenges in getting that one perfect shot. Over time I have found that the more information I can get from the client, the easier it is to take pictures.

Some of the questions I will ask:

  • What are you looking for in the pictures (action, relaxed, posed)?
  • In what environment do you want your pet photographed (around your home, local park, dog beach)?
  • How many pets are we photographing?
  • How active is your pet (runs around in circles all day or is happy to sit on your lap)?
  • Is your pet friendly to new visitors or does it take time to warm up and show his or her true nature?
  • What is your pet's favorite activity (chase after a ball, go for a walk or just sleep)?
  • Does your pet have a favorite treat and are you comfortable using it during the photo shoot?
  • Did you want to pose with your pet?
  • Are there any toys or props you want to include?

After our initial phone or email conversation, we can set the time and place for the photo session. I will spend anywhere from 1-2 hours with you and your pet. During that time, I will get a feel for the environment and try to access your pet's personality to capture their true nature. After the photo shoot, I will return to my studio and spend time adjusting and creating a photo gallery for you to review and choose photos. Within the gallery you will be able to select prints and digital images.

My goal is to provide you with a collection of timeless pictures that capture the individual characteristics, unique expressions and true nature of your pet.

Please feel free to contact me for additional information and pricing. Thank you for taking the time to review my photos and website.
