Dogs and Cats are not the only pets that like to pose for their picture, and owners who love their animals will love a picture of them.

There’s an old saying about never working with children and animals and photographing pets can be a real challenge. Easily distracted and famously flighty, you have to be prepared to capture the moment – at any moment, so patience and empathy with animals is a must.

The technical challenge is one thing – capturing the ‘personality’ of the pet is another and your skill behind the camera will need to be matched by your creativity in front of it.
