SPECIALIST PET PHOTOGRAPHY
It is only when one shares their life with animals, that they can truly understand the depth of emotion they evoke. Their presence touches lives in so many ways. Often pets provide comfort, laughter and a listening ear. They never criticise or question our judgements and their loyalty remains true till their last breath.
At David Wagstaff-Myers Photography we understand this first hand and have refined our Pet Photography skills over the years to ensure our images capture an animals individual personality and the very essence of who they are. Our extensive experience has taught us that animals are often best captured when photographed within a natural environment, or at least one they are familiar with. As such the majority of Pet Photography sessions are held on location out in woods, the forest or even at the beach!
However, in some circumstances this is not appropriate, such as when we are working with the very young, very old or those with significant medical needs. In these cases we have a number of options including our own dedicate Studio, or bringing the Pet Photography session to your home.
Over the years we have gained experience of photographing a wide variety of animals including, Dogs, Cats, Horses,Guinea Pigs, Hamsters and even Bearded Dragons! However, it is our experience of working with many nervous / fearful dogs, that has really taken hold. Often owners of these dogs would never consider it possible to have their beloved pet photographed by a professional photographer, so we are immensely proud to say they can!
Our WATCH ME GROW sessions are designed to document your pets changes over their first 12 months of life. They offer the perfect opportunity to capture all the fantastic memories that will soon fade into the past.
And whilst it may be hard to consider, we also have our Rainbow Bridge sessions, specifically catering for those pets that sadly do not have long left with us.
Over the years, our vast experience has taught us the importance maintaining a positive, calm environment, especially when working with pets who have significant medical needs. As such these sessions are carefully planned, in partnership with our clients, to ensure they cater for any medical related issues, such as incontinence etc, and also incorporate very specific, personal components that are symbolic of the relationship between them and their pet.
