Savage Photographer: Jacob Meyer

Jacob Meyer

I have been studying and practicing photography since I was in High School. About three years ago my focus for photography drastically changed when my girlfriend found a 4 month old Bernese/Shepherd puppy that someone had abandoned by a dumpster in a neighboring city. Now Sofie has become one of the biggest influences in my creative work on a day to day basis. What started with taking pictures of her spiraled into a love for pet photography and quickly hurled me into the world of animal rescue. Now I work full time in animal care at a local shelter and volunteer my photography/video services to local pet rescues in the area. I see first hand how professional portraits of animals can give them such a greater chance at finding a loving home and to me that is what it is all about.
