Pet Portraits

Award-winning pet photography and portraits

Patrick Demarchelier

“The dog is the perfect portrait subject. He doesn’t pose. He isn’t aware of the camera.”

Pet photography and portraiture is a different kind of animal, all puns intended. How do you capture the essence of these members of the family without changing who they are and how they act?

It is indeed possible, and I have all the claw marks to prove it! :)

My approach to pet photography is similar to that of their humans: get to know them, see what they are like, and then create an environment in which these traits are brought out.
