While visiting pet events, like Agility, Conformation, Schutzhund/IPO, etc. with our own dogs, I typically take the time to photograph other pets’ performances and exploits.
Those photographs are available to license for personal use via my Pet Photography web site in the “Pet Events” section: This license can be used to post a photo of the pet at the event on social media, web sites, and to print – options available are downloads in 1Mpx, 5Mpx, and full resolution, at a licensing cost of $5.00, $8.00, and $15.00, respectively.
I also offer photography services to individual clients, through engagements photographing the pets in their natural environment – sometimes called “environmental portraits.” Typically this will entail a session with the pet(s) and the family (if so desired), where we capture the pets’ interactions and idiosyncrasies. Engagements like this usually include a consult before the session to establish the goals and intentions, and then the session itself. Deliverables are for personal use only, and may not be used in a commercial context – if commercial use is desired, we will discuss this up front during the consult and agree upon a licensing and use agreement prior to the session. Note that in all cases I retain copyright for the photos, and reserve all rights, unless conditions are specifically outlined in the license/use agreement.
For personal use, I do not charge up front for this service, and instead will sell high quality framed prints in various sizes at a cost of $150 to $300 per final photo.
Once complete, I will post the session photos from on the web site in the “client” area. Using a password we agreed-upon earlier, you will have access to the session photographs in low resolution to pick the ones you like the best, and may wish to purchase. I will post-process those photos for you, and, after deciding on size, finish, etc. I will invoice you and, upon receipt of payment, deliver those photos to you. In addition to prints (typically framed), I offer optional products (additional fees may apply) containing the photos, like a CD/DVD with slide show (if desired, with the music of your choice), a photo book and/or photo album, calendars, etc.
We will discuss the above in more detail during the pre-session consult! In the mean time, check out some sample photos, or feel free to contact me regarding pet photography!
