Re: Pet retouching

@Doug, every picture is retouched, basically its part of the package. It run's like any other portrait studio really, except with dogs and cats!
Animals on the whole are a lot easier to work on than humans, its a great first job for someone like me who's been trying to break into the industry for a few years now.

Re: Pet retouching

Just as more people portrait photographers are doing their own retouching, some of the pet portrait photogs I follow do their retouching - and some are also offering art renditions. Cowbelly Pet Photography

Re: Pet retouching

One should not overlook peoples pets. When I was doing Santa photos, we set up a day for doing "Santa and Pets". We found that people would spend 50 to 75% more for the Santa and Pet packages than those who had us take the photos with Santa, their kids and pets, and usually at least 100% more than folks who just had us do Santa and kids.

And the pets ran from dogs, cats, various types of pigs, goats, Llamas, chickens, turkeys, horses, cows and a 1800 lb bull (and Santa was in a red suit!!!!!) We almost did a fish once (he was going to be in a plastic bag full of water) and we where asked often, but Santa (and this photographer) did not do reptiles.......

There is money in pets!

Bob - some truly excellent work! Some beautiful images and a few funny faces. You are good at enticing and capturing wonderful expressions as well as properly lit/exposed compositions.

I just took a peek at your blog and found your recent portraits of Elvis and Quentin... I think your daughter did a great job of cajoling him into adorable poses for you.

Re: Pet retouching

Thank you for your kind words. I really love photographing dogs. And, my daughter is truly gifted with animals. I appreciate your comments.

Re: Pet retouching

I had a request to thin a fat kitty's waistline in an ad once. I thought you might find this funny.

Correction: maybe not exactly a waistline but the overall stomach and stuff. They wanted it to be more of a normal sized cat.

Re: Pet retouching

That's a new one on me. But, it makes sense. Especially for an ad. Whenever I drastically altar the shape of a dog or eliminate a "feature" I picture myself as being a virtual plastic surgeon.
