When talking with dog owners there are 5 questions that keep coming back almost every time, so in case you have one of them here are the honest answers.
Question: My energetic little Chloe won’t sit still and has to be on a leash. Will you be able to photograph her?
Answer: Yes, I will be able to photograph little Chloe. As a matter of fact 95% of the dogs I’m photographing outdoors are on a leash due to safety and leash laws. To see some before and after images, click on this link:
Would it have helped if Chloe were an obedience champion, you bet. Knowing sit and stay is also helpful, but most dogs I meet and photograph are energetic, happy go lucky pets and I have learned how to work with them and their owners to create stunning images without the need for obedience medals.
Question: Jake, my beautiful Labrador has black fur and it’s really hard to get a good picture of him. Will you be able to do it?
Answer: Yes. Photography is all about lighting and with a black dog technical skills become even more important. I’m trained and have several years of photography experience, so don’t worry about the color of your friend’s fur.
Question: Can I be in the photos or do you only photograph dogs?
Answer: Yes, I even recommend you as a pet parent to be in at least a couple of the images to feature the special relationship you have with your dog, a relationship only a dog owner would understand. My background is in portrait photography so I’ll make sure to make you look your best too.
Question: Do you sell digital files?
Answer: Yes, I do. There are actually two digital options depending on how you want to use the images. If you only want the digital images on your phone to show them off to your friends and family, you will like the digital photo app. Any images that you order e.g. portraits or images in an album will be included in this app and the best part is that it’s free. If you want the digital files to print on your own, there are three different packages available for purchase all including printing rights.
Question: Where are you from?
Answer: I’m living in Orange County, California but if you ask because of my accent, it’s from the country I grew up in on the other side of the world, known for the lovely music by ABBA and with a people that know the meaning of all product names at IKEA (e.g. the candles called Tindra actually means sparkle) – Sweden.
