More Americans now than ever are pet owners. In fact, over 67% of all American households are home to at least one pet!
Chances are, your pet is one of your favorite beings on the planet. Why not capture your memories with pet photography?
Choosing pet photographers doesn’t have to be difficult, but you may not want to pick the first one you come across.
Read on for five factors to consider when comparing photographers for pets and choosing the best one!
Choosing Pet Photographers Based on Experience
Pet photography experience is one of the first things you should take into consideration. Any good photographer will tell you that photographing different subjects, whether that’s landscapes, humans, or animals, comes with different challenges. Make sure your pet photographer has worked with animals in the past.
Flexibility and Patience
At the end of the day, you can’t tell your pet to sit still and smile for the camera. Pets have a mind of their own! Talk to your pet photographer about what they do when a pet isn’t being cooperative and what their policies are regarding rescheduling in the event of a pet emergency.
Online Customer Reviews
One of the best ways to gauge a professional’s skills is to look at online customer reviews. Don’t just take their word for it that they do good work. What do previous clients have to say about it?
Remember that one or two bad reviews don’t outweigh dozens of positive reviews. Some people are downright hard to please. If a pet photographer has overwhelmingly positive reviews, you can expect a great experience.
Types of Animals Your Photographer Will Work With
Remember that not all pet photographers will work with every animal in the animal kingdom. Chances are, pet photographers are primarily accustomed to working with the most common pets: cats and dogs. If you have, say, a horse or a bird or even a reptile you want to schedule a photoshoot for, make sure your photographer feels comfortable working with that species.
Style of Pet Photography
Finally, different photographers have different styles! You may have certain types of images–for example portraits vs action shots–that you are hoping to capture. Take a look at your pet photographer’s photo gallery (usually featured on their website) to make sure that your vision aligns with their style.
