Commercial pet photography

Professional photography to promote your business, product or brand

Need some eye-catching, high quality professional pet photography?  In addition to private sessions, I am also available for commercial pet and animal photographic assignments, both through design agencies and directly to commercial clients. I have an existing stock photo library that can be drawn from if I have something to suit the application, but in other situations a custom session will need to be organised to shoot specifically for the client’s purpose.

I specialise in pet and animal lifestyle photography and can provide the following services:

  • Liasing with advertising agencies or directly with clients to create suitable concepts to suit various applications
  • Sourcing suitable pets for photography, from my existing database of commercial models, or through various other avenues
  • Location scouting
  • Australia-wide travel available
  • Photography services billed at hourly, half-day or full-day rates depending on requirements
  • Image selection and professional editing

Stock photo library

Most of my client images, as seen in my portfolio and blog posts, are available for commercial licencing. Please enquire for more details.

Commercial dog model database

Often the most time-consuming part of organising a commercial pet lifestyle shoot is finding the right doggy models. I have an existing database of dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes that I can refer to when sourcing the perfect dog to promote your brand.

If you have a dog who was born to be in the limelight, I am currently accepting applications for my commercial model database.
