Dog and cat photographer
Advertising work with pets
I am a professional animal photographer and I have been dedicating myself exclusively to this photographic specialty for more than 9 years. Dogs, cats, ferrets or birds are part of the models that I have counted on for the advertising campaigns that I have made. But what is needed to carry out a photographic commission of these characteristics? Here are some tips.
Have a large and comfortable photographic studio
If you are hired for a photoshoot where several dogs or cats will be present, then look for a large photo studio. It is important that the animals feel comfortable and therefore can be relaxed. A studio that has several rooms, will be ideal so that several models do not come together at the same time. A dog and a cat who do not know each other, together in a new environment for them? Better that they meet on another occasion.
Have a canine trainer or feline behavior expert to assist you at the ready
On the day of the session, your job as an animal photographer consists of taking photographs of dogs or cats. Having the help of another animal professional, in this case a dog trainer or a feline behavior expert, will help you focus on your role. It is highly advisable to have help to position the animals, sit them down and help them to be comfortable.
Canine or feline hairdressing for your models? Exactly right!
Canine and feline hairdressers have the knowledge about the different styles that customers can ask for. It is not the same to cut the hair of a hard-haired Teckel as it is to cut the hair of a Golden Retriever. There are a multitude of breeds and sizes and each has its own specific look. Thanks to their work you will have beautiful and well-groomed models.
These are some of the tips I bring you to successfully conduct your photo shoots with dogs and cats, I hope you liked them!
