Animal Artists & Photographers

Whether an animal is new to an owner’s home, or a wonderful companion that has been around for many years, more and more pet owners are turning to a professional pet artist or photographer for a first class picture or painting. Working with animals and children is probably the hardest thing to do when you want them to keep still, but these professionals have patience, and the ability to capture ‘the moment’ perfectly.

Most animal artists will take many photographs of an animal first, and then work in their studio from those images, in conjunction with comments from the pet owner to achieve the right look and feel of the final portrait. Many of these artists can work in several mediums such as oil, pastel or pencil, depending on the customer’s preference. The final portrait will usually be framed and take pride of place in the pet owners home.

Pet photographers will also work closely with the owners to capture the character of the animal, and these images can normally be taken in many different indoor or outdoor locations. Most of these specialised animal photographers will encourage the owners to allow their pet to be photographed in familiar surroundings to ensure they are completely relaxed and at ease. Whether pet owners want a picture or portrait of any sized animal from a hamster to a horse, there are many animal photographers or artists based all over the UK.
