Professional Pet Photos

We bring you the best local animal photographers who are able to capture the individual personalities of your pets with stunning photos.

Hound in Hand Photography

Dani of Adelaide’s Hound in Hand Photography knew, even from a very early age that she was going to be a photographer.

Starting out in the world of fashion (dahling!) and moving into weddings and events she eventually found her calling and fulfilment working with dogs.

Dani says that it brings great joy to photograph the special connection between dog and human, creating memories to last a lifetime.


Based in Unley, Mark Trumble of Photographyroom is one of SA’s most accomplished pet photographers, being a 4 time winner of the (sadly now defunct) AIPP SA Pet & Animal Photographer of the Year Award.

Through his ‘Pet Pawtrait’ sessions Mark has raised $20,000 in support of the Animal Welfare League.

Paws & Pose Photography

Before shouting about her incredible pet photography skills, Elouise Giardina admits that she is a crazy dog lady and obsessed with horses. Oh, and she’s the proud owner of a rescue Greyhound.

Based in Adelaide, but shooting all over Australia Elouise has cultivated a relaxed and authentic style for her pet photos, as you’ll see from her Instagram account.

Petstar Photography

Petstar Photography is run by Karen Faure, an Adelaide based family pet photographer.

Working in the photographic industry since 2001,and starting this business in 2014 Karen has cultivated a loyal following of clients and has photographed hundreds of pets across Adelaide since she first started.

Understanding the need for patience when working with animals, Karen takes time to get to know each pet and allows them time to find their comfortable place before attempting to work with them.

As well as solo shots of dogs, Karen does a great job of capturing the special bond between pet and owner in her portraits

Faithful Paws Photography

Located in the Adelaide Hills, photography sessions with Faithful Paws start at a very reasonable $100.  No product is included within this fee, but it still represents excellent value for pet photos in Adelaide.

Created by the self taught photographer Elise, who spent so much time photographing her own dogs that she became a proficient and skilled dog photographer, Faithful Paws creates striking artworks for your wall that are guaranteed to still look incredible in years to come.

Adelaide Pet Photos

Based in Mawson Lakes, just 12km from Adelaide CBD, Janet Coelho at Adelaide Pet Photos likes to create a relaxed and unhurried pet photoshoot, working patiently to ensure the animal is comfortable and accompanied by plenty of treats.

Bobo & Jess

Erika describes herself as your local crazy cat and dog lady, and probably the most colourful animal photographer you’re likely to meet.

Photographing weddings, events and animals in the early part of her career, Erika decided it was time to follow her passion and just photograph the subjects she loves – animals!

Erika ensures that her animal photoshoots are fun and comfortable for the animal, with plenty of treats and cuddles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Prices for professional pet photography can vary, but a general price is approximately $200-300 for a photoshoot and then most pet owners purchase prints, wall canvas or digital files, spending anything from $200 to around $1200-$1500 for an average shoot.

Most animal photographers are sole traders who gain their business through offering a quality service to clients. They are not usually endorsed or ratified by any professional body. It’s safe to say that bad or neglectful photographers don’t stay in business very long!  In Australia the AIPP is the organisation for professional photographers.

There are several high profile animal photography competitions, but some which are more suited pet photographers are the Kennel Club’s Dog Photographer of the Year and the newer Pet Photographer of the Year run by the folk at the Pet Photographers Club podcast.

Some pet photographers focus solely on one type of animal such as a cat or a dog, but many offer their services to all creatures.  Nearly all the photographers that we have come across photograph dogs, but very few are prepared to photograph horses.
In our experience we have found that the optimum photoshoot length is about one hour with dogs.  This allows for the dog to take a break and a variety of scenes.  Working with cats can be trickier and sometimes you get 10 seconds and sometimes 10 minutes or more.  As long as your animal photographer has brought along his bag of patience, they’ll manage to capture some stunning photos for you, no matter how long your pet is willing to work with them for.
