In November, I worked with Good Wolf Design Co. to create a gallery of pet brand photography highlighting their collar and leash sets. My rottweiler, Quorra, is my on-call model for pet brand projects like this one!
Good Wolf Design Co. provides durable leashes and collars in a variety of colors to suit every taste. Each item is vegan, stink-proof, easy to clean, and made to last for years of use! I chose the leash and collar set in merlot for my rottie to model.
Working with animals often doesn’t go according to plan. I worked with Quorra in 15 minute segments over three evenings to get these modeled product shots. While she is very obedient, she didn’t feel like smiling the first two times I worked with her. She instead gave me stony looks like the ones below.
No matter, I used the opportunity to get some modeled product shots from behind -no smile required!
On the third night/attempt, I was finally able to coax some winning smiles from my rottweiler. I walked her right before shooting to get some natural, post-walk grins!
Patience is the greatest asset a photographer can have when working with animal models! Animals don’t understand what you want; love on them, give them treats, and be realistic when it comes to your expectations of their behavior. Sometimes it’s just not the right day!
If you are interested in a pet brand photography session for your canine accessory company, Quorra is available to model your pet products! Click here for more information about my brand imagery services.
