I am a portrait, editorial and commercial animal photographer with a degree from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. I have been represented by the Museum of the Americas in Miami, Ugallery.com and the Art Fusion Gallery, and I currently volunteer with different local shelters to provide them with professional photos for their shelter animals, which helps them get better exposure and increase the odds of being adopted!
I specialize in Dog photography but I have to say that all animals are interesting models in front of my camera, I’ve had the pleasure to photograph shelter dogs and cats which are very sweet animals just looking for a second chance in their lives, I’ve also had the opportunity to photograph llamas, until a few weeks ago I had no idea llamas were used as emotional support animals for senior homes and also at were used at wedding venues to cheer up the party!
Animals in my opinion just make everything better.
Pet photography is my passion, no bones about it. In the time I’ve worked with animals, I’ve had the chance to snap some fluffy, scaly and feathery friends from all over the Atlanta area.
So what makes me the right choice to snap pics of your pet? I understand every photographic principle from lighting to lenses, and know how to showcase your pet the right way. I also work with professional photo labs to deliver to you the best quality of my work and to provide a unique piece to cherish your furrever friend. But it’s more than that. I’m also crazy about animals, which means I know how to get the best from your pet when the camera is on.
I’ll be glad to teach you how to look at things from a different perspective either through your phone or your camera, like the great photographer Ansel Adam’s once said “Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution”
