A Tradition of Celebrating Pets
From cave art to classical paintings to modern photography, we humans have been celebrating our four-legged companions for thousands of years. At You Lucky Dog photography, pets are my muse, as they were for countless gifted artists in the past. In this selection of some of my favorite art featuring pets, the animals' beauty and character come through despite the decades and sometimes centuries separating us from them.
Now Accepting Commissions
If you'd like to honor and commemorate the canine or feline friends in your life, I'm currently accepting commissions. You Lucky Dog specializes in Pawtraits of Distinction™. The idea is to make something more meaningful and substantial than nice-looking snaps.. I use a wealth of technical expertise and an eye for composition, light, and color to create durable art. The final images bring out your pet's essence: playful or noble, inquisitive or goofy, fierce or soulful, and sometimes all of the above.
While feasting your eyes on the lovely old black-and-whites below, I hope you'll give some thought to how you'll want to remember the special beastie in your life. Feel free to get in touch to discuss creating standout portraits that are just as memorable as these (but a whole lot more colorful and contemporary!).
