What IF MY DOG DOES NOT SIT STILL?
I can't tell you how often I hear "But my dog would never sit for pictures!" All I need is 1/500th of a second for a click of the camera, and I have a number of tricks up my sleeve to get dogs' attention.
Take a look through my portfolio. Only one of those dogs is an obedience champion ... can you guess which dog it is? The answer may surprise you! Every other dog is a normal pet with minimal training. I've photographed dogs that don't know the words 'Sit' or 'Stay' and have produced portraits for their owners that amazed them!
What IF MY DOG NEEDS TO BE ON A LEASH?
Almost all of the dogs you see on my website were on leashes. Thanks to the magic of Photoshop, I remove leashes from the final image.
CAN YOU PHOTOGRAPH BLACK DOGS?
Yes, I regularly photograph dark-colored animals. Cell phones and typical point-and-shoot cameras tend to make black dogs look like blobs
CAN I be in the pORTRAITS?
Yes! We can create portraits of just your pets, but I always encourage pet parents to hop in for a few frames. There is nothing so special as that bond between human and furry family members. If you're a bit camera shy, I have a number of ideas that incorporate you into photos with your sweet pet. Candid photos of a tender moment between a beloved dog and his person are priceless.
what about props?
Props are a fun and creative way to add to your photo session. If there is a certain prop of mine that you'd like to use in our session, just let me know beforehand! I am happy to incorporate special props or mementos that you own, too.
where will we meet?
Places like the Columbus metro parks, High Banks in Lewis Center, Inniswood in Westerville, OWU (Ohio Wesleyan University) in Delaware, and other open air environments provide a gorgeous backdrop. Contact me with your ideas!
How soon do we get our pictures?
After your session, Browning Photo meticulously edits your images, which includes about a dozen or so hours of retouching, softening, and color correcting 'the keepers.' This means you will not see every image taken - just by the nature of working with pets, there will be blinks or drooling or hair on your clothing. (But rest assured, I love a good blooper and will include any funny outtakes!)
Within three weeks, we will sit down for an ordering session. This is when you will see your images and will select which images you would like to order as part of a print or digital package. Approximately four weeks after your ordering session you will receive your beautiful artwork.
Browning Photo is full service - taking photographs is only a small (but pretty important!) part of documenting your pets and family. I pride myself on being there for you every step of the way. This includes answering all your questions and guiding you through the selection process at your ordering session.
I was once a photography client like you, and there is SO much I didn't know then that I wish my dog's photographer had told me! By meeting in person for your ordering session, you get to see your edited photographs just as they will look when they're delivered to your door.
What DOES THIS COST?
Browning Photo's pricing structure gives you the most flexibility and options. With a small sitting fee that does not include images, you are then free to decide which products makes the most sense for your needs. No one knows your family better than you.
Professional photography is not something you do every day, so when you do it, you want to do it right. I am here to answer all your questions and make sure you get photographs of your dog that someday, hopefully far in the future, you will be so grateful to have.
