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.

Tails of Time Pet Photography

Gabby at Brisbane’s Tails of Time Pet Photography is a dog lover with 4 Cavaliers of her own, finding pet photography after a statistics course destroyed her dream of a career in veterinary science.

If we’re honest Gabby, we reckon you had a lucky escape. After all, how many vets do you see playing and having fun with dogs – they’re mostly doing the less than fun stuff; but thank goodness someone is!

Pricing for Tails of Time photoshoot start at a very reasonable $99 for those on a budget, ranging up to more extensive 12 month long packages that cater for the developmental milestones over the first year of a puppy’s life.

Gabby says that her purpose with her pet photography is to capture all the love, sunshine and adventure of a life filled with fur.

Take a peek at her website and Instagram and you’ll agree she’s ticking all those boxes.

Zoo Studio

If you’ve seen a well lit studio shot with a brightly coloured parrot and a black background on social media, the chances are that it came from Brisbane based Zoo Studios. (If you check out their Insta feed you’ll see it’s mostly dogs, but the birds leave the lasting impression!)

Well known for their iconic black background studio shoots, they photograph all types of pets and do seem to have a good mix of species from dogs through to reptiles and birds.

We hear on the pet grapevine that they are making a foray into the busy Melbourne pet photography scene, but we’ll keep you posted on that.

Charlotte Reeves Photography

Brisbane’s most popular pet photographer Charlotte Reeves has to be one of the nicest people in the industry.

Not only is she a great photographer, but other photographers (who can be a prickly bunch!) respect her work and place in the industry.

With consistently good work which shows why she is always busy, she is generous with her photographic knowledge and time, often answering questions and leading discussions in photography forums and Facebook groups.

Charlotte was also one of the first big pet photographers to invest in the new Canon Mirrorless R5 cameras and share her experiences on YouTube which no doubt encouraged many other animal photographers to jump on board with the new cameras.

Her love of natural light is always evident in her Instagram feed, and is probably the special sauce that makes her images pop.

Hairypants Photography

Kelly, the owner and photographer at Hairypants says that she is pretty sure that she has the best job in the world as she gets to combine her two loves – photography and animals.

Specialising in photographing pets in natural settings, Kelly services the south east Queensland region and has a bundle of photoshoot locations up her sleeve to suggest once you have had your initial meeting to discuss what you would like to see in your pet photos.

Kelly always ensures that your dog has a great time during your shoot, even bringing treats and toys along to the shoot.

Frances Suter Photography

Although predominantly a boutique wedding and portrait studio Frances Suter also offers pet photography services and they’re just as good as everything else she and her team produces.

With an award winning AIPP photographer at the helm, whether it’s weddings or pets you need photos of, you’ll be in safe hands.

As well as a fenced backyard that she can utilise, Frances also has a studio set up but can also shoot on location upon request.

Lynn Tedjasukmana of Pup & Co provides modern on-location pet photography specialising in dogs and equine photography, with a creative fee of $199 for sessions.

Based in Forest Lake, QLD, Lynne serves Brisbane Southside, Brisbane Northside and the Gold Coast.

Camille Scott Animal Photographer

With a pet photography studio in Salibsury, Brisbane, Animal Photographer Camille Scott loves all animals, but especially dogs and has 30+ years of photographic experience.

Much of Camille’s work appears to be studio based and quite stylised, but she also offers sessions out on location at the beach, park etc.

Like most pet photo sessions, it also very much depends on the dog and what they are comfortable with.  Camille’s style is unhurried and she likes to get to know the dog and let it relax in it’s surroundings before she picks up her camera.

Paw Prints Pet Photography

Serving Brisbane, Moreton Bay region and the Gold Coast, Amanda at Paw Prints Pet Photography says that she offers a ‘complete experience’, not just a photoshoot.

After spending time photographing wildlife in Africa, Amanda decided to follow her passion and offer her photography service to dog owners.

K9 Photography

As Diana readily admits, she loves to chat and will happily talk all day about her shared love of dogs if you let her!

Diana keeps the studio environment fun and enjoyable for your dog, encouraging some play and actions shots as well as more posed photos once the younger or more energetic dogs have expended a little energy.

Katrina Christ

Well known for her classic black and white family shoots, Katrina Christ also offers pet photos as part of her services, although from her socials and website it seems that she prefers family AND dog rather than solely dog portraits.  Either way, they’re lovely photos!

Alison Cooke Photography

Alison Cooke is crazy about dogs, but is probably best known for her family, newborn and wedding photography, but whatever she is photographing she’ll always manage to grab a dog photo if there is a dog nearby.

When Alison’s own dog crossed the rainbow bridge, she was so grateful for the photos that had been taken of her enjoying time with him that she really encourages people to take as many photos of themselves with their beloved pet while they can.

Based in the suburb of Lawnton, Alison services the whole Brisbane region.

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.
