View Full Version : Pets on location or studio?

For those of you that shoot pets regularly do you shoot more on location or at your studio/place? What works better for you and what have your clients asked for? Thanks for any help.

I'm a dog groomer so I see lots of pet en route for their pictures. Personally, I am just starting out with photography so cant help but I have a local photographer who does location work with pets and he is awesome.
Can I post his link here?
Its www.pawspetphotography.co.uk . I absolutely love his beach shots:)

Thank you for sharing the paws pet photo site. Very nice work.
I shoot all on location ... also just starting out and don't have a studio. I'm positioning my "mobile" service as a marketing angle. I've done a couple sessions so far for a local doggy daycare center.

I think studio photos are beautiful but I prefer to shoot on location. The pets tend to be more comfortable and I think it's really important to capture personality, whatever it might be! : )

Both but mainly studio. All the shelter pets of course are done at the shelter but from my experience if you are photographing pets in the studio it isn't a big deal you can control the light better and the animals after a few minutes settle down and you can photograph them. it can even be helpful as their curiousity is heighten by being somewhere new so ears are up and they are attentive. Cats need more time than dogs but they too can settle down for a studio portrait.
