Pets are one of the most fun and entertaining subjects to photograph. Their personalities shine through in anything they do, and their candid actions can make for one-of-a-kind photos. Here are 8 great examples of studio pet portraits we've stumbled upon across the web!
If you love animals as much as I do, you want to see every single one of them find a loving forever home. Sometimes an animal will come into a rescue or shelter and find a home immediately but sometimes they’re not so lucky. A great way to help homeless pets is to donate your time and talent to an animal rescue or shelter to photograph their adoptable animals.
Allow me to introduce you to our subject of the day. Meet Nigel. He is a 16-week-old fawn Great Dane puppy and has spent quite a bit of time in front of my lens lately.
I got involved with Aztec Doberman Rescue in San Diego, CA in 2010 and we recently worked to put together a fundraising event in which people would get really excited to participate. We decided to hold special 30-minute sessions in my studio and donate a big portion of each session fee to Aztec. For the studio setup, I used Savage's Chestnut Seamless Paper.
Red is always a bold color choice. Few colors can grab our attention as quickly and as powerfully as red. For creative types, the use of red is typically done intentionally. Almost like shouting at the viewer, “there’s something here I’d like you to see!”
Allow us to introduce two adorable foster puppies who recently found “fur-ever” homes thanks in part to photographer Lisa Jennings and the New York PawSafe Rescue.
Our Project Pet Portraits is aimed to match volunteer photographers with a professional studio background for pet adoption photographs and animal rescue shelters across the US. This month we had the wonderful opportunity to have pet photographer, Tanya Hopkins, shoot on our Rustic Seamless Paper for a recent adoption weekend with Humane League of Lancaster County.
Our Featured Photographer Lisa Faust loves photographing pets on Savage seamless paper! In addition to providing beautiful family pet portraits, she works with both the Yavapai Humane Society and United Animal Friends in Prescott, AZ donating sessions to help with adoptions. This gallery features a variety of seamless including Canary, Orange, Pure White, Thunder Gray, Turquoise, Chestnut and Fashion Gray. See Full Gallery>>>
Is there anything better than a senior dog? I really don't think so! That's why I wanted to hold a two-day fundraiser for Lionel's Legacy Senior Dog Rescue in San Diego, CA this holiday season. For the photos, I wanted to keep my backdrop clean and simple so they could be enjoyed by the participants long after the holidays. I chose a 107” Savage Soft Gray Seamless Paper and it was absolutely perfect.
Its soft warm hue is pleasing, and it has just enough orange undertone to move out of traditional brown or beige. Orange can sound scary (although it’s been on Pantone's hotlist for a number of years), but the right orange can be wonderful. Sienna is that orange. See Full Gallery>>
This adorable photo gallery was shot by Paola Paladini Pet Photography for a recent adoption photo shoot for Good Karma Pet Rescue of South Florida. Paola was awesome enough to shoot 35 foster pets this past weekend to help give them a home!
This holiday season, pet photographer Tanya Hopkins volunteered her time for this adorable pet adoption photo shoot on Holly Green Seamless Paper with Humane Pennsylvania. This is Tanya's second time teaming up with us in our Project Pet Portraits progam and we are so happy with her work in helping these animals find a home!
