Colby's finally tired... CC appreciated

This is Colby, our 5 month old mutt. He settled in the backyard this morning as I was out taking photos, so I was able to get down to his level and snap this before he jumped up to chew on the camera. I've never really tried pet photography but I've wanted to take it on as a learning project, and this seemed like a good place to start.


Studio Pet Portraits is my Style

I started doing this for my local Humane Society and love it. The shelter manager gave me the best compliment, saying that I take a throw away animal no one wanted and make them look beautiful and desirable. (This is Ingot, a shelter puppy who started her life in the snow with an emaciated mother who ended up not being able to care for her. I...

What do you think?

Was out doing some bird watching when neighbors dog came out. So I did what any self-respecting photographer would do leaned over the face and took a few shots. I like how serious and tough it portrays him as when he is a big old push over.

Black and White Portrait

This is a portrait of a labrador-puppy i made last year. As i saw couple minutes ago that people on fstoppers had voted for "needs work" it made me curios. Is there really so much wrong in that Image? I'm aware that there is a lot of work to be done on my photography, but i always thought that one was of the better of my solid pictures i took...

Shelter photos

Once a month or so I volunteer at my local animal shelter and take portraits of the animals. The staff there tells me it dramatically increases the adoption rate. That makes me feel good and I like doing it. This is a shot of "Miss Kitty" a Norwegian Forest Cat mix. Beautiful girl.

I am considering offering my services out there and don’t want to be selling crap. Please don’t worry about my feelings it’s the only way to grow sometimes look forward interacting with the group...

Creepy Caiman

Taken at a zoo in France. This was shot with a 70-200 (can't remember if I had a 1.4x on it or not) and was shot through VERY thick glass.
The image was extremely washed-out so I had to run it through many many photoshop filters to make everything POP. Took a while but I spent a good amount of time on it and I think it came out great!...


From my local animal shelter where I volunteer once or twice a month to take portraits of all the new animals. Brooke really caught my eye on my last visit. Such a regal cat, posing for the camera.

Diem the Wirehaired Vizsla

What I like about this photo is that it was not a lucky accident. I had a plan and it worked well. We went to a local pond in the early morning light. It was overcast giving a nice diffused light. I set up far enough away to not distract Diem. She can get all goofy when she notices me. She was concentrating on fetching a ball from the water...

Close Encounters of the Fox Kind

Is this not the happiest fox you've ever seen?!

Although Ruda has been brought up as a pet she still lives in a natural outdoor environment whilst interacting with her humans.
Working with wild animals is always a challenge and none more than introducing them to a foreign, confined space. It was a matter of patience and allowing...


Who can't appreciate the limbs of a hound, especially when you can exaggerate them through a wider focal length! Long legged and long-snouted.. it's just the best when you want to show off their goofy side :D
