pet photography portrait of a labradoodle

A few weeks ago I was asked to photograph a pet  dog called Oscar, who is a Labradoodle. The owner wanted to get a professional portrait done as a surprise present for his wife for her birthday. I had had an idea in my head for a studio style portrait of a dog for some time. When I got to the owners house I realised this would be a great opportunity as Oscar was a very obedient dog and the owner had enough room in his living room to set up my portable studio. Even though Oscar was a black dog, I thought as long as I lit him correctly, a black background could look really good.

I was really pleased how the studio style pet photography portraits turned out and I will definitely be trying to do it again.

Next we took Oscar to the back garden and took some pictures. It was then I realised I might get some great action shots as he had lots of energy and loved to chase his ball.

So we took him to a local park where I got some fantastic images of him chasing his ball. He was so fast though that the auto focus in my top of the range camera was struggling to track him. These are my favourite kind of pictures to get of dogs as the owners have never usually seen them frozen in time in this manner. It is almost impossible to capture them with normal cameras as the auto focus is just too slow. As well as the action shots I did some more posed shots as I was able to get the background totally out of focus as there was plenty of space.

The end result was for a framed print. When the owner seen all pictures, he couldn’t decide which one he wanted printed as he liked so many. In the end I arranged for a custom frame that could fit one large image, with three smaller images below. The end result was stunning and the customers wife was speech less.
