My dog is wild! Will you be able to handle him/her?
Without a doubt. I've worked with some very energetic dogs before, and while it may be a challenge, we always get the shot we need.
Do you charge extra for more than one dog?
My packages all state how many dogs can be a part of the photoshoot. The price does increase for more than 2 dogs, however so do the perks! Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the amount of dogs you would like me to photograph.
Where do the photoshoots take place?
Usually, photoshoots will take place in your home, however I also offer options for outdoor photoshoots so we can also go to your dog's favorite park or anywhere else. All of my equipment is portable, so you don't have to worry about a thing! I will come to you, and we will work in a space that is familiar and comfortable to your pet.
What time of the day/week would my session be?
Photography sessions usually take place on weekends. If that doesn't work for you, we can find another time during our Pre-Session Consultation.
I don't have a dog, but will you photograph my cat/bird/snake/etc?
I am thrilled to photograph most animals! I'm a PET photographer, after all. However, if you have a cat or rabbit, there is a minimum order amount of at least one 8x12 print per animal (no other animals have a minimum order amount).
Can I order a gift certificate?
Sure! You can do that in the online store HERE. Gift certificates come in $100 increments, so if you would like more than $100 just change the quantity of gift vouchers in your order.
What kind of equipment do you use, and what experience do you have?
I use a Nikon d750, and my 2 main lenses are my 35mm f/1.4 or my 85mm f/1.4. My lighting and backdrops are provided to me by Savage Universal. Before I started photographing animals I worked is in portraits, concert photography, and real estate, and I think my experiences with posing and lighting from doing portraits combined with my experience from photographing fast moving subjects in concerts has prepared me well for the broad range of experiences that can occur while photographing pets!
Do you offer digital files?
I do not offer digital files for sale. My goal is not to give you a Facebook album that you're going to forget about in a few months. When you work with me you will receive a work of art that will last a lifetime. Every time you walk into the room and see it you will be reminded of the amazing times you've had with your dog over the years. Of course, when you order any prints you will receive the digital files that correspond to any photos that you've ordered, and they will be cropped appropriately for social media, because who doesn't want to show off their best friend's new photos! If you meet certain requirements when ordering prints you will also receive a flash drive with all of the photos from the session included.
Is my pet going to want to go on a worldwide modeling tour after this photoshoot?
Almost definitely. At the very least they're going to want you to contact Calvin Klein about a billboard in Times Square.
