Just a few of the framing options are canvas wraps, face-mount on plexi with a floater, rear-box-mount-on-masonite, an Epson Ultrachrome pigment inkjet print on smooth 100% cotton fine art paper for a soft painterly look, or traditional mounted and matted prints which are then placed under glass in a wood or metal frame of your choosing.  I can provide you with an abundance of exhibition and framing choices, post-shoot

--  with every session, my creative time and talent taking and editing the photos is included

--  my goal for every shoot is to take pictures you will love and treasure.  Photo sessions are fun and memorable.  The dogs "parents" are always invited wholeheartedly to get in some of the shots.  I love photographs that show your pet's bond with you and that capture his/her unique personality.

       to you!!

These are GREAT!  Thank you so much.  We so appreciate it.  Love that we were able to capture his puppy essence  :)

               Kayla (Northern Virginia)

 

He did a terrific job, was easy to work with and I will use his services again.  We highly recommend him to anyone wishing to have real life photos of themselves with their beloved companions.  Bill is an honest and approachable person and we liked his style.

PhoenixMelissa-2964PhoenixMelissa-2964 Needless to say, we all gathered around my computer last night to once again go over the shots you sent .... there were lots of gasps, awws, ooh's, etc. as each shot would open, despite the fact we've stared at your shots forty million times.   

         Cinda (Mid-Atlantic)

 

Your photographs are spectacular.

Bill loves dogs and you can see it in his work.  He took the time to get to know our dogs so they would be at ease during the shoot.  He was even able to get some great shots of our "photogenically-challenged" dog who we could never photograph well on our own.  We were very pleased with the results and working with Bill was a delight.  He was flexible, professional, very down-to-earth, and skilled.  He really worked hard to give us the photos we were after.  I recommend him highly.

Meet the photographer     The influences from childhood are powerful and stay with us the rest of our lives.  We always had dogs as I was growing up.  Every summer when I was 15 or younger we went to the Jersey shore in August for two weeks.  Not surprisingly, my whole life I've loved dogs and spending time at the ocean!  I got a Kodak Brownie camera when I was about 12, and my dad bought me a Leica 8 millimeter movie camera when I was 14 or so.  I've been hooked ever since on taking pictures.  In 1975 I won an honorable mention for Best First Documentary for a 16mm film I made that I submitted to the long-since discontinued Yale Film Festival.  In 2002 BillPhotoBillPhoto I got a dealer in Manhattan to exhibit my seascapes.  A year or two after that I combined my lifelong fascination with photography with my love for dogs.  I became a professional pet photographer.  I'm happiest when photographing a dog I just met who's owner brought him or her to one of my sessions somewhere, or I just arrived at the front door of my client's residence.  Nine times out of ten the dog is suddenly barking somewhere in the house, and I haven't even rung the bell or knocked on the front door yet.  Not only are all dogs great sniffers, but they hear pretty good too!  And they like to keep track out front by sitting by a window.

  

In 2011 the Washington Post produced a video about my pet photography.  See that here,
