When I was introduced to Charity de Meer‘s “Pet Project” portrait photography, I squealed. Really. I hardly recognized the noise that came out of me. But I couldn’t help it. I am so in love with her unique approach to pet portraiture. The concept is simple, your pet and your favorite pair of shoes shot from the waist down. The result? One ultra-stylish photo with you and your best friend.
I just read a great article on ReadyMade.com about taking great pet photos for personalized greeting cards. I don’t know about you, but my dogs shy away from the camera and don’t sit still. However, after reading this article, I feel a bit more confident about being “puparazzi.”
Helpful hints form the article include:
- Using the rapid-fire setting on your camera so that you can get multiple shots. You can always go back and delete the bad ones.
- Stick some peanut butter to the roof of your pooch’s mouth to snap a photo of her licking her chops.
Garry Gross is a New York-based dog photographer who formerly worked in the fashion and beauty beauty world. He has now focused on dog portraits and his Senior Dog Portrait collection is heartbreakingly beautiful. Some of the faces made me tear up – it’s amazing how expressive and telling your face becomes as you age and it seems to be the same for pets.

Award-winning photographer Martin Usborne will present a new solo exhibition, MUTE, at East London gallery theprintspace on Thursday October 21, 2010. The exhibition consists of photographic prints of dogs looking silently out of car windows in the dead of night. While you might think that this is a statement on leaving dogs in hot cars — it’s not. Rather, Martin is exploring the sense of loneliness and isolation that many humans (and animals) experience in modern times. These images are poignant and haunting.
