30 Inspirational Pet Photographers

April 18th, 2012

These days pets are increasingly being considered members of the family. As people are having children later in life, the focus on ones career brings pets into the scene. These pets are often cherished as much as children and their quality of life is a top priority in the minds of their owners. This regard for animal welfare, along with the design savvy culture we live in, has influenced pet photography as well as the pet industry in general. This showcase portrays how good design and aesthetics can change our perception of pet photography. Enjoy!

    Sassy Pet Photography in the DC area, started out last year. http://www.sassypetphotos.com
    I seriously can’t believe http://www.robynarouty.com/ (Houston, TX) did not make the list. She blows everyone else out of the water. Seriously check out her site if you haven’t seen her work- she is an inspiration and does so much to support rescue.

    I just emailed your blog to my sister. You need to see her work http://www.serenahphotography.com.au. She is one of Australia’s most creative pet photographers and won multiple awards on a global standard.

  17. Cindy says:

    Hmmm… not to be biast but you forgot to add one very talented pet photographer http://www.serenahphotography.com.au, in fact I think she should be number one on the list (not just because she is my sister :)) but because Serena is an international multi award winning photographer with her images featuring on cards and books gloabally!

  36. Great list. Llooking forward to the next round up – Australia could probably use a list all it’s own as we have some well established brands in each capital city now.
